    I'm stating that the problem doesn't exist if you create seats that don't create space problems for anyone over 5'6.

    And yeah, it'd require retrofitting planes - just like airlines do every time they find a way to squeeze yet another five seats on the same size plane.
    I'm not even sure I agree with the bold. This is the first time I've ever heard of reclinegate. Never even thought to complain about it.
    Chair reclines. End of story.

    I'll backtrack a little, because in fairness to this guy we don't know if he had already politely asked the lady if she wouldn't mind sitting up a bit. Maybe she got nasty with him about it and it escalated to what it was from there. Who knows. Not enough info.

    Agree with G that if some of these airliners didn't cram you in like sardines we wouldn't even be talking about 2-3 inches of recline being any kind of deal at all.

    More room to recline, less seats on the plane. Less seats—more expensive the tix are
