I am going to give a polite, thoughtful and considered reply to the two sets
of ideas listed here in reply to my post.
1. I would LOVE to book the emergency exit row on every flight. If I
could, there would be no need to burn up my frequent flyer miles trying to
upgrade to 1st class as I usually do. Unfortunately, there are only a few
rows that fit the bill, and they are in high demand. Being able to get this
row is the exception rather than the rule.
2. I believe tht your right to recline ends where my shins begin. If your
reclining doesn't incionvenience me, and I give permission, then go ahead
and recline. The last disagreement I got into involved a young girl who
wanted to recline, and I agreed to a certain amount of reclining on her
part. During the flight, I saw her thumb on the reclining button and felt
the seat digging into my shins. As far as I was concerned, she had broken
our agreement, and now had to put her seat back up. Of course, I practice
what I preach, declining to put my own seat back so as not to inconvenience
the person behind me.
3. I am sorry that your back may hurt. Making my shins hurt and preventing
me from raising my legs periodically to prevent blood clots does not seem to
me to be a fair compromise. I paid for the legroom, you didn't.
