Here's a debate for you, to recline or not to recline.
Wendi took to social media recently to show her dismay over the guy behind her, trying to force her to put her seat in the upright position on an air plane.
When she first reclined her seat, he punched it 9 times, that's when she started filming his behaviour, and he changed his method of bullying, and constantly pushed her seat.
@BravoAndy Here’s a great jackhole! He was angry that I reclined my seat and punched it about 9 times - HARD, at which point I began videoing him, and he resigned to this behavior. The other jackhole is the @AmericanAir flight attendant who reprimanded me and offered him rum! pic.twitter.com/dHeUysrKTu— wendi (@steelersfanOG) February 9, 2020
Wendi even made a complaint to the flight attendant, who in turn, threatened to have her escorted off the plane and they gave the guy a complimentary drink.
She took it further and made a proper complaint with American Airlines, but apparently they told her to talk to the FBI.
Men in Black would solve this in a heartbeat with one flash from their Neuralizer.
But seriously why are there reclining seats on a plane if you can't recline? Many were divided over this issue:
EasyJet have removed recliner mechanisms from all plane seats & thereby removed more than 50% of issues between passengers. There is no need to recline a seat unless you are on a long-haul flight & the meal service is over. Reclining a seat into another persons face is just rude.— Norms (@Norminaus) February 12, 2020
Complete rubbish. It's much more comfortable to recline your seat and they are designed in such a way that they do not affect the person sitting behind. I recline my seat 100% of the time and have no issue with people in front of me reclining the seat which they paid for.— Nik Radmore (@nikradmore) February 12, 2020
sorry but all those people stating she shouldn't recline the seat, why not if the facility is there? If the state of a reclined seat was so bad it wouldn't be an option would it?? 🤯— Lisa Ailie Burgess (@LisaAilie) February 12, 2020
I’m 6’2”, travel extensively, and always pay for the extra leg room. This boy is in the wrong, that’s assault. All the people tweeting “you should have asked to recline first” - I have never seen someone ask if it’s okay.— Molly Pitcher (@AmazonMistress) February 12, 2020
This is why I don’t fly American anymore too.
Airline is to blame - seating configuration is too tight.— FlyersRights (@KendallFlyers) February 12, 2020
And, his seat doesn’t recline w/wall blocking it.
Why did you recline into his lap. Consideration goes both ways. Unless you are on a flight that is 10 hours or more you don't need to recline. How about you think about your actions in the future and how they affect others.— SGS Outdoor (@sgsoutdoor) February 12, 2020
I always check behind me first, so if she didn’t do that! However, that guy is a petty child for just constantly hitting her chair. If he was that bothered then he could have just complained about her, instead of hitting it like a petulant child.— Lisa Allison (@LisaJaneAllison) February 12, 2020
