Exhibit A: The knee crushing culprit
If you are one of those people who reclines your seat all the way back on a plane there is a special place in hell for you.
Why is your comfort worth more than the person behind you? Did you buy two seats?
It causes a domino effect as then every seat has to recline to compensate to have any room at all. On the Copa flight the seats reclined way further than I’ve seen before. The gentleman infront of me was fully reclined and his seat pressed aganist my knees. It was very uncomfortable. I had to stretch my legs and in the process I’m kicked his seat every few minutes.
Of course I urge you to be comfortable and move your seat a little but if you recline fully please remember the person behind you.
