    Continually pushing on the seat is a jerk move but pretending to ignore it while recording is full on weirdo. I think they deserve each other.

    She’s now claiming she was assaulted and wants to sue him. Now I’m not sure who’s worse.

    The one who should be in big trouble is the flight attendant. She is completely within her rights to recline and the FA should have put a stop to his pushing on her seat. From what I understand she told the woman it was illegal to record on an airplane and she had to erase her recording.

    She should be fired for being stupid and being incompetent. The guy should be banned from AA for life.

    I can't believe how noisy that flight is. Is that normal?

    If she gets to sue for this, I had a flight last month with a 3 year old in the seats ahead of me...

    If you are a big guy and need room fork over for first class.

    Otherwise embrace the suck.

    I stopped flying about 25 years ago.
    Flying was a pleasant experience back in the day. But when they got the prices down to where the "great unwashed masses" could afford to fly, it went to hell.

    Being able to "crop dust" at will would have saved that guy from acting like such a jerk. A good silent one will usually give you more room if you plan your preflight diet accordingly.

    I heard a story from a guy who started working for Delta way back. He said he and his friends would utilize the low cost/free employee flight priledges just for the meal. Times have changed.

    True.

    The real "issue " imo is having the passengers so packed in that there was no area to recline in the last row.

    You couldn't have squeezed a couple of lousy mm forward on the other seats to get just a teensy recline on the last one?

    They were both dicks imo.

    If a hawt girl is sitting in front of me and she wants to recline her seat back, I’m good with having her head in my lap. If it’s a dude, well then he’ll have to buy me a drink or something first.

    I understand the woman had neck and back problems. Guy slamming her seat is a real bad deal.

    Another problem is we are becoming a nation of lard asses and at the same time, airlines are tightening up space to squeeze in an extra row or two...

    Guy was a dick for sure. That being said, NOBODY should be reclining on a flight that is <4 hours.Ever. Never. Ever. Period.
    On the other end, redeyes- relcine away beyatches!
    Anything else- ask politely before you do it.

    I am right here. If you disagree, you are wrong.:duel:

    I'm surprised that the flight attendant allowed that behavior to continue. Honestly, that dude needs a smack upside the head for acting like a 3 year old.

    I avoid flying like the plague, Being stuffed in like sardines with the general public isn't my idea of a good time.

    Sorry but that comment sounds elitist, just like Clinton referring to so many as "Deplorables". Don
