"Here’s a great jackhole! He was angry that I reclined my seat and punched it about 9 times — HARD," the passenger wrote on Twitter.
“ An airline passenger's video of a man punching the back of her seat sparked an online debate: Is it OK to recline when sitting in economy?
Wendi Williams said on Twitter that she was on an American Airlines flight from New Orleans to Charlotte, North Carolina, when she decided to put her seat in the recline position.
The man behind her responded by repeatedly punching her seat, she wrote.”
The answer is if you’re a paying customer you have every “right” to recline your seat if that is your wont. Just as the person behind you does.
The only reason this dude was doing this was because the person reclining was a female and he knew that he could get away with such anti-social and dickish behavior.
If it had been me in front of him, he would be retrieving his face from the baggage claim at his destination.
I get it, most economy airline seats suck. But if it’s that important to you, there are other classes available to you with more room.
