Not to sound flippant, or anything. But what's the deal with the "Seat backs in their full upright position" thing on takeoff and landing?" I understand that the tray tables can bang around, but what difference does the angle of the seat back make to safety?

Bonus question: What's your biggest pet peeve about passengers?

In case of an emergency, the passengers need to get out quick...if the seat front of me not not upright, then it may be difficult to get out or block my exit.

and, secondly, in a case of a crash or emergency landing, you'll have a brutal decelaration (slowdown) so if your head bounces to the front violently and immediately after comes back to the neck part of the seat, the lesser way your head has to make before touching back the seat, the lesser risk you have to break your neck.
