One of those "how would you handle..." situations:
A couple of days ago I was on a long-haul flight where the woman in the seat ahead of mine insisted on trying to recline it.
It doesn't usually bother me. But this aircraft had a very narrow seat pitch which was fairly incompatible with the length of my legs. Which meant that, as this lady tried to recline, the seat jammed against my legs and wouldn't go back any further - despite her thumping it.
Just when I thought she'd resign herself to the idea that she wouldn't be able to fully recline the seat, she asked a flight attendant for help. He promptly braced himself against the seat and gave it an almighty shove.
Given that I was reading at the time, and didn't know what was about to happen, the first I knew about it was the sudden painful jarring in my knees and thigh bones.
Now I'm normally fairly patient with my fellow passengers, and even on this occasion I didn't make a fuss. But I do wonder whether people ought to consider the poor person behind them before they put their seat back - and start seeing the "recline" button as a privilege rather than some God-given right.
Any long-legged passengers out there feel the same?
Or are you the recline-at-all-costs type?
