In the red corner - the recliners. You've paid for your seat; it is designed to recline after all, so push the button as soon as you hit cruising altitude.
In the blue corner - the never-recliners. You are invading your fellow passenger's space, which, of course, is already extremely limited.
Through the years an uneasy balance has been struck (at least ask if you want to recline, put your seat back upright at mealtimes), but sometimes the fight boils over.
On a recent American Airlines flight in the US, one passenger decided to shame a fellow flyer who "punched" and pushed her seat after she reclined it.
"After much consideration, and exhausting every opportunity for #AmericanAirlines to do the right thing, I've decided to share my assault, from the passenger behind me, and the further threats, from an American Airline flight attendant," a user named Wendi Williams wrote on Twitter last week.
What turned up the heat, even more, was what happened next. Williams said a flight attendant then offered him a rum, and then threatened her with further action on landing.
"I'm in pain," wrote Williams. "I have one cervical disk left that isn't fused – the first one which allows me some mobility. It's scary because it's this kind of injury that could do it in. I am grateful for the limited movement I still have and shouldn't have had to endure repeated blows," tweeted Williams.
"When the Flight [attendant] came. She rolled her eyes at me and said, "What?" She then told him it was tight back there and gave him rum! She told me I had to delete the video! It's against the law to video on a plane. I asked her name & She gave me a Passenger Disturbance Notice!"
Who is in the right here?

1) The guy can still watch his video, don't see how the seat is disturbing him besides him being a little bitch
2) The woman is really pushing it "I am grateful for the limited movement I still have and shouldn't have had to endure repeated blows" "punched it 9 times - HARD." I wonder if she needed an ambulance upon landing. I hope she pulls through. The poor lady wanted a relaxing flight, not an MMA match

That being said, the seats are designed to reclined, so by virtue of that, I wouldn't make a fuss if someone ahead of me decided to recline. I'd just question their reason for doing so. It serves no purpose as far as I'm concerned and is a classic example of 'just because something can be done...' We both know they're more uncomfortable but they've somehow convinced themselves that just because they can recline, it must be somehow more comfortable. Why else would the airline allow them to do it? Rather than listen to their ever stretching, razor blade-esq pantie liners / ever tightening sperm-reducing boxer shorts.

Someone had to get fucked, and learn to move on. He's a whiny little bitch for sure.
