    Didn't think you were allowed to recline until the seatbelt sign had gone off.

    Another 1hour 50mins the pilot just said. Stuck here in this sweaty metal tube of despair. Everyone can fuck off

  4. I'm guessing he's an Orthodox Jew in all the hat and garb? Without wanting to stereotype, I've always found them to be amongst the most arrogant people when travelling. They always seem to push to the front of the queue, never say please or thank you and are generally unpleasant types. When I was travelling to Israel a few times a few years back, it was always the orthodox mob who acted like this, rarely anyone else on the flight where you have to imagine there will be a fair proportion of "normal" jews.

    just order a ham and cheese panini and bacon fries when the trolley dolly comes round. some gassy lager and spend the rest of the flight belching heavily between the seats in front.

    I roll with the rule that reclining is a right reserved to everybody. If somebody reclines in front of you, then you have the right to also recline. However if the infront seat isn't reclined then you should reserve caution. Basically once the first recline happens then everybody is entitled to recline. If nobody is reclining then it's a little rude but acceptable given the size of the passenger. If you recline in that circumstance it is the person behind that should be annoyed at their refusal to recline rather than annoyance at the recliner.

    We are just sat here on the tarmac
  9. It's horrible when you're in that situation, I'd get up and wander around, chat to the crew, grab a drink or two, just generally stretch your legs.

    I would tend to agree, if the bloke behind me was already reclined then fair enough, but his knees are in my back i couldn't recline if i wanted to

    Nee drink either but I've a bottle of scotch in my bag might crack it open

    He's entitled to recline his seat.

    You're so entitled to kick the back of it.

    You could also offer it to the wife.

    He is breaking the first rule of plane travel. You are well within your right to adopt guerrilla tactics and stick your air blowing nozzle onto extra cold and point it at him.

    Get pissed, make a scene and i'll have a read about it on the Daily Mail tomorrow.
  18. I’m 6 foot 3 and haven’t got a lot of legroom on flights to start with. It’s very poor etiquette, shouldn’t even have the facility to do so. I don’t put mine back if someone’s behind me.

    Mind you airlines cramming seats in doesn’t help.

  20. The last 10 or so times I've flown the recliner facility has been disabled . Maybe it's just Jet2 weez done this .
