Garden Club Meeting - September 2014

Re: Garden Club Meeting - September 2014

Quote from an article i just read about the knee defender

 

Many pro-recliners say: Pay to upgrade to a better seat; If you can’t afford more space, well, too bad you’re economically challenged — suffer in silence.

 

 

Amen lol

 

 

Brian Kelly on the Web site ThePointsGuy.com had this to say if you don’t pay for extra leg room: “Overall, this is a story of entitlement and greed — people wanting something without paying for it, then passive-aggressively ‘stealing’ someone else’s perk (in this case, recline space) for their own enjoyment.”

 

 

 

 

Though with this I don't agree with. People shouldn't be talking loud on their cellphones while in flight. If you want to talk to somebody go to the bathroom and talk softly.  

 

It’s the reason a woman on a flight I recently was on felt she had the right to make a telephone call while airborne and talk so loudly that I could hear her three rows away. When people complained and the flight attendant asked her to get off the phone, she argued that she had paid to use the airline’s WiFi service.

Not much empathy around these parts.

It is not like there is no better seats on a plane .... You can simply pay more for a "Better" seat. 

 

 

I also don't mind when people recline so that is a factor in my opinion Smiley Very Happy

Hello GC, looks like i will be in garden for at least 3 more weeks:-) since i can't app when i am overseas lol. 


Smiley Happy Stay safe, applying would be the least of my worries now days!


Cold why are you trying to scare me now i am going to be nervous flying :-(


I remember looking out the window ( Love window seats) and remember asking myself why are the wings wobbling lol Smiley Tongue


i don't think i have windows seat i messed up when i chose my seats oh well. Talking about air travel whats everybody opinion on people using the knee defender to prevent people sitting in front of them from reclining. Is reclining your seat an privaledge when you buy your tickets?


During a long international flight? Yes! I'd better be able to recline back!


you heard about the altercation on the United flight over knee defender thats crazy sauce. i have heard both sides , people say if you want more leg room go buy first class seat. I don't know which side i fall under yet. 


Well Flying First class to Paris was like $12,000 not paying that much to fly ...


Well if they don't want the seat to be able to recline, then don't design them with the function to recline. Seat trays are just as annoying but if you want me to be able to sleep and be quiet through the night, then I want to recline. Otherwise I am going to have my light on and read.


Those seats can recline thus I am allowed to.  If you don't like don't fly and take a car,  train,  boat or whatever else.  Just my 2 cents.  I paid for my ticket and it's my right to recline the chair if I want to


interesting take , but this knee defender thing would prevent you from even reclining let alone having choice to . It blocks ability to recline its attached right by the tray. 


Then I would bring it up to an attendant and that Either A) Refund my money for this flight ( I can try lol) or B) tell them to remove it or C) I will sue or Do something to the airline legally of course.   Plane tickets for economy are what I have seen $500 to go to Philly one way , $500 round trip to San Diego and $2,400 to go to Paris one way, I spent my money on this flight and if i want to recline my Seat I will there is no but whats or ifs to it.

 

 

Honestly should make it illeagl for those things 


Technically it's illegal but don't know if it's ever enforced
