Why not make the seats more comfortable to begin with and make them permanently reclined? And what's with that forward pushing headrest? It's not "restful" at all. It downright gives one a head and neck ache!
Boo on incivility! Boo on selfishness!
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
Well they tried in vain to get fat people to buy two seats, that did not get a lot of momentum, and just resulted in a few lawsuits. I don't think they'll make seats any better, specially since they can get people to pay extra for more leg room, which is still narrower than normal seats used to be 10-12 years ago. That said, I thought it was common courtesy to not recline your seat unless it's a child sitting behind you.
Yes. Unfortunately it isn't PC to ask a fat person to pay extra due to the amount of extra food they chose to eat.
It is perfectly fine however to charge a tall person extra because they were born with a genetic predisposition to have long leg bones.
At 180cm (6'4") my femurs don't fit between most airline seats even when the seats are upright.

Or at least asking first if he/she minds
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
1) In general, airline seats recline. I should be able to recline if I choose too.
2) When you buy a ticket on a plane, you know seats recline. Be prepared to deal with it.
3) How on earth did a passenger get on board with an anti-recliner device? There was the no
4) The woman turning around and tossing the drink - me thinks, Mr. Anti-Recliner said something
Toss in the stupid TSA searches, parking, wait lines, uncivil service from airline staff, and I just don't fly if the trip is less than 5 hours. It's not worth the hassle.
As far as fat people - that's just too f'ing bad. If you take up two seats, you buy two seats. I occasionally flew with small children. If they could sit on my lap, I saved the ticket (wasn't pleasant), but if they were too large - I had to pay for a another ticket. I think this is shaming me to use..... oh never mind

Have you ever just looked at someone and knew the wheel was turning but the hamster was dead?
Trying to understand the behavior of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours!
