I am 100% in favor of this. It needed to be done because some travelers are incredibly rude and selfish. They ram their seat back pretty much the moment wheels are up and they leave it like that until forced to return the seat to the upright position. They don't care one bit how much they encroach into another person's space. I had this on a flight from Memphis to Amsterdam years ago. Some jerk did this the entire flight. Wouldn't even put the seat up for meal service. So bring on the reduced recline. I hope this is done for all flights.
I'm 100% against this. It is a bad idea that caters to incredibly rude and selfish passengers who pretend buying a ticket gives them the right to tell other passengers how and when to use a built-in feature of the seat they paid for! They complain like self-entitled jerks even though they knew at the time of purchase that seats recline, and they chose to buy a ticket anyway, rather than fly on another airline where seats do not recline by design. Seems they forgot when you buy a ticket, you get a seat, with all the amenities of that seat, and that does not include a guaranteed minimum volume of personal space.
Truth is, I don't care, I don't fly Delta, and I don't usually recline my seat on short flights because I don't feel the need to. I would if I did, with due consideration for meal times. On longer flights, the recline is less of an issue for me and the passengers in my immediate vicinity.
Point is, everyone is entitled to their opinion, doesn't mean anyone who disagrees needs to be dumped on. Especially when it comes to a built-in feature that is not a surprise to anyone on this site.
