    They were talking about this on the Dan Lebatard Show yesterday. Personally I never thought about it and always just reclined with little to no concern for the passenger behind me.

    Is it rude to recline?

    Yes on short flights. Long flights are a different story. But have some consideration.

    I wish I didn't but I actually feel guilty when I put my seat back.

    People do it all the time, and they have every right to. They paid for their ticket just like I did.

    But again for me, I feel bad for making their already small area even smaller.

    Airplane seats should be able to be locked from reclining on short, domestic flights.

    I'm 6'2 and my knees are practically already digging into the tray on the back of the seat as it is. Recline and be prepared for me to keep bumping your chair throughout the flight.
