    I researched the device - there is no law against them. The FAA deferred the matter to the airlines some of which have said they frown upon them and others don't care. That's quite a stretch there for you to insinuate that I bring knives on the plane.

    Lol!

    I fly pretty often also, in fact I Just got back from San Antonio last week. The new seats the airlines are putting in are f***ing ridiculous, man. They are glorified children’s lawn chairs. Im 6’-4” so pretty much any chair carries some discomfort but the new “slide your s*** under the chair in front of you” chairs are completely bogus. Im pretty much forced to fly business or first class for any flight over an hour.

    I didn't say they were comfortable, just that they reduced this issue.

    You punch people in the back of the head on the plane so who knows?

    People in a hurry: On the train/Bus people stand to the right on the escalators and such and don't give a wit about the people in a hurry. A person on a plane about to miss a connection? Oh god forbid that person might get off before you so you miss any of your lengthy layover. If you have a connection you'd be hurrying too.
    If you are from the UK / Europe they stand on the right of the escalators / moving side walks (whatever they are called)
    and you walk on the left side .
    It's a pretty good system as you can get around the people standing.

    I fly loads of times most years , a few longs hauls a each year as well .
    I do not recline , maybe just a little if I can but that's when the guy in front me does and then
    there is no room at all.

    To be honest I just feel more comfortable with the seat nearly straight up.
    Being in the 6' tall club I have had my share of bashed knees from some one
    slamming there seat back down .

    No fun!

    I move my seat back 50% of the way. I figure that's far. What bugs me are people who lunge back all the way the instant the plane takes off.

    I am 6' 4" and I definitely do not recline unless I am in business or in an extended legroom area of coach that reclining will not disturb or cause discomfort to the person behind me.

    With the way airlines pack seats in regular coach sections these days, my knees are already up against the back of the seat in front of me with no recline.

    Reclining while seated in that section is simply a rude and selfish act. Tall people are definitely held in low esteem by airlines.

    Reclining is not a right. I think that feature should be removed from regular coach seats.
