    Me neither. Now fix the seat backs in one locked position and then nobody has cause for complaint either way. Problem solved. :D

    I'm an aisle person for the same reason, as well as the fact that I'm 6'3" and a touch claustrophobic. Those few extra inches of ceiling height there (as well as not having the overheads directly over my head) are comforting to me.

    More likely that last 4 or 5 rows fixed position for Economy. Main Cabin will still have restricted recline. Comfort Class advertises 150% recline. That won’t change. And those seats will recline into Main Cabin seats. Guarantee it. Should Comfort Class not be allowed to fully recline if the Main Cabin seat behind them? Considering the premium price paid the answer is Yes.

    Those paying Economy price get a crappy uncomfortable seat. If you can’t make it work without making demands of others that is your problem. I recline. And I don’t complain about the person in front of me. Free to use all seat options that Airline allows. Knee Defenders are banned.

    You really make it hard for people to be sympathetic to your condition. Common courtesy is a dying art.

    I just strip down to my thong and hustle through. People seem to let me go to the front of the line for some reason also.

    I was at a TSA somewhere, I can't remember where it was, but I remember a bunch of older ladies complaining about who they were blinded by something. They couldn't remember who it was but they said some person ran through the scanner and forgot to take off their shoes. Supposedly the person was wearing brown wingtips and a lime green thong. o_Oo_O

    As said tall guy, I choose to not recline because I don't like it when others do it, but I'm not going to tell them they can't. What I don't appreciate is them not giving a courtesy warning that they are coming back. My needs aren't above yours, but I would hope we can work together.

    He had more space around him than the average first class seat. ;)

    And it looks like the wall behind him is padded. I'd take it.

    I disagree. It makes way more sense to load front to back, aisle to window. That way, every person has to get up out of their seat to let every other person in. Also, put your bag in the back, then walk to the front like a salmon to your seat.

    I was trying to be sarcastic. :confused:

    It angers me when I get on the plane and people have to get up out of their seat to let others in.

    Who designed that system? Certainly not an engineer!
