Debate is raging online about reclining your seat on a flight. Many feel that
it’s unnecessary and inconsiderate while others have the opinion that if
the person in front does it, it then gives you free reign to recline. What do
you think LiveTribers? Do you get annoyed when someone reclines their seat? Do
you always recline your seat?

never ever and I hate it when people do it feels like sitting in my lap
Oh I'm sorry but I think people who are tall can go straight to hell as well!
And ban shopping trolleys because they may hit my car in the carpark, Jesus
please come back and save us from these fwits!!!!!
I WILL Fing recline my fing chair in the plane IF the plane makes a seat that
DOES RECLINE then it means that you are ALLOWED to recline it otherwise DONT
MAKE RECLINING SEATS IN PUBLIC VEHICLES you morons in aviation!!!!!
Unless someone is eating then I RECLINE because I am tall and I didn't pay to
sit in their tuna tin to get a back problem!!! 6 hours from Perth to Sydney
every 10 days for 6 months and short arsed wankers behind me telling me off?
Guess how many people I told to F off???? Unashamed. How about you worry about
the jerks who talk loudly for 6 hours, get drunk, f up the toilets, let their
kids smear shit all over the seats, farting, bad breath, bad B O. ????? I'll do
what I want with MY SEAT I paid for.
Yes, if I am trying to sleep on a long flight. Not if I am awake. I understand
it's annoying to have someones seat in your face but all you need to do is
politely approach them and ask if they could incline their seat slightly... No
need to resort to childish, much less violent, behavior.
Recline, it’s a ridiculous debate
If you dont like recline and their is enough ppl thinking the same perhaps
airlines can have recline and non recline areas
On the non recline areas, give them even less space
I like to recline my chair and seeing I fly Jet Star or Qantas, Seeing they are
making plenty of profit,(Aussie owned), there should be plenty of leg space
available. Who are they catering for Tall Aussies or Asians who are much smaller
Hmmmm something to think on.
One should not be cramped up at anytime and certainly not on an air flight.
Hard one here THUMBS UP for decline, THUMBS DOWN for that other person decline.
Selfish NO, The airline just does not give enough space to relax well.
I think it’s ok to recline your dear to your comfort as long as you are not
placing another passenger in front of or behind you in a uncomfortable position.
The flights can be long everyone deserves to relax and comfortably
I would only recline my seat if I was on a long haul flight and I would ask the
passengers behind me. Unfortunately I used to fly every 2 years but I’ve had a
bad accident not my fault and my surgeon will now only allow me to fly business
class so I can lay down due to 9 spinal injury.
Reclining seat on a flight makes the passenger comfortable but at the same time
the other passenger sitting behind gives him less space. Basically it has both
advantage and disadvantages for one it’s comfort and the other it’s
I once had a problem with the blood flow to my brain and was on a flight to see
a specialist, and when I was seated upright I was in agony.
So if some idiot had started banging on my seat he would have been in frefall
without a parachute.
I think there are too many rude inconsiderate people nowadays that think of
themselves "only". how many people have the decency to actually turn around and
ask " Do you mind if i recline my chair a little" and anymore than a little then
you are the person i am on about, but are you going to do that all of your life
and just think " As long as i am comfortable"? I dont care.
Absolutely on long flights. There is no way I can sleep in a vertical position.
I have flown overseas many times and never has the person sitting in front or
back of me not reclined their seat to sleep. On short trips in Australia, no as
it is only for a few hours.
No , i never do , i know what it's like when i'm sitting behind . If you have a
drink or a meal on the tray in front of you . The moment someone moves , things
get spilt and leaves less space to eat . Even when you ask the people behind , i
find it an inconvenience and disturbs the passenger ! Let's face it we're flying
economy , if it's a big issue ask to be moved to business and pay the extra !
Personally i think the subject is a storm in a teacup , especially if the person
in front moves ! i guess the world is always full of nit pickers and these
people are never satisfied and always find something to whinge about , just be
grateful you aren't in their world .
