    Planes can be really tight quarters. If you like to recline and the person behind you politely asks that you move up a bit because you're laying on their legs, what do you say?

    My knees hit the back of the seat already, so I just leave them there and the seat can't recline.

    I only fly Frontier, who got their seating plan from the Amistad blueprints, so I've never actually had enough room to recline my seat.

    "Robin, who flies in first class, let alone coach?"

    I never apologize for reclining my seat all the way back. I'm 6'4" and paid at least $500 for the seat; I'm getting all my money's worth. I've had arguments with stewardesses about un-reclining my seat during meal times. Guess who won.

    I always fly on a Dash8 Q400, I don't think the seats move.

    I never recline in the first place.

    Does next to nothing except make the poor clown behind me even less comfortable.

    If the seat in front of me comes back, my knees get restless and it usually goes back up sans discussion.

    I don't ever recline unless the seat behind me is empty. I think it is very impolite. Everybody paid for their ticket and deserve to have a little room. People like @Rabid Dogman don't seem to realize that.

    Save your money, fly first class, and stop your bitching.

    I'm not trying to start and argument here but don't you think that's pretty selfish? I mean, you are taking up the space from someone else who probably believes the same as you but isn't confrontational like you seem to be.

    What about the guy reclining? Didn't he pay for his ticket? Doesn't he deserve anything?

    He's using the space he paid for. He's using the seat he paid for. That seat reclines. You're being selfish.

    You people go ahead and recline in your seats. Don't come crying to me when some reaches around and slits your throat.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you don't fly too much.
