    Knee Defenders and Passenger Comfort

    6 years ago, a product titled "Knee Defender" came out - plastic pieces that go on/lock to the arms of a tray table to prevent the seat in front of you from reclining.

    Airlines (Northwest, Delta, and American for exmaple) have banned it. Internet forums can be the source of much debate, but the question to you is:

    Is it right to restrict somebody else's recline for your own comfort?
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Hmmm...that may explain some difficulties of late.

    No, they're not cool at all.

    As someone who's 6'3", absolutely not. When the person in front of me reclines, my knees take a pounding. It is the recliner that is not being courteous, not I.

    Is it right to restrict somebody else’s leg room for your own comfort?

    Let's face it, you bought coach, this is what you agreed to tolerate for a reduced price.

    You know the seat in front of you may be reclined when you buy your coach ticket. If you think that will be too restricting, buy first class ticket.

    As someone here who's 5'1", I don't care much about leg room.
