Reply To: Why do they do that?!

Let’s bring up an old rant.

Why do they have seat recline in short-haul economy?

Yes, I know that one passenger may think that he or she has purchased the right to tip the seat back in my face, but I think I have bought the right to the (already limited) space in front of my nose. So we are in conflict, so let someone resolve this: no recline, or maybe all recline simultaneously.

I have just arrived at GVA from LHR (on Swiss) with a seatback in my face. The passenger in the offending seat made no effort to put the seatback upright on descent, and the cabin crew made no check. I did complain to the chief cabin attendant.
