So, my recent flight on United Airlines from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to Houston, Texas began the usual way. With someone in a middle seat asking me to move from my window seat across the aisle so she could sit with her friend.
Lots of reasons to refuse. One is my friend was sitting directly in front of me and promised not to recline the seat because of the very limited space.
There’s precious little room in economy nowadays without some jerk reclining.
The woman next to me wasn’t so lucky, as you can see.
In response, she reclined her seat. Reclining begets reclining. Then, everyone has a terrible flying experience.
If it were up to me, airplane seats in economy wouldn’t recline.
BTW, this jerk also waited until the plane was unloading after a two-and-a-half hour flight to ask my friend for a pen so he could fill in his U.S. customs form. This trapped my friend in the row while this guy sat there – with tray down – filling in the document. What’s wrong with people?
