An airplane is a petri dish of awkward situations involving manners. Who gets to use the first-class restroom, close the window shade, and disembark first? But no topic has generated more controversy than the argument over whether or not you should recline your seat during a flight.
Some people think you should be able to use the recline feature on your seat if it has one. Good people make up the remainder of us. Regretfully, not everyone possesses this common sense.
Ways to prevent a passenger on a plane from recline their seat.
This tip from u/medievilmusician on Reddit may help you deal with the situation: "If the person sitting in front of you on a flight reclines their seat all the way back and leaves you with no room, turn on the air con above you to full blast and point it at the top of their head.".
Put differently, unleash your passive-aggression by making the person in front of you suffer the wrath of your icy airplane air until they give up. Although it's possible that they'll ask you not to, it's more likely that they'll move to avoid a conflict.
It might be time to take a more assertive stance if that doesn't work or if the seat in front of you reclines only a few inches away from the path of your air conditioner. ". The moment I see it begin to recline, I try to press my knees up against it, which prevents it from doing so. It's funny to watch them struggle and wonder why it won't work," u/drudown49 writes. Should it not work, you could try giving yourself an extra inch or two at the very least by kicking the seat in front of you once in a while or pretending to have restless legs syndrome.
