    Personaly I refuse to because I think it's inconsiderate of person behind me.

    I don't recline because there's hardley any room already. It's nearly impossible to get to the isle when someone in front of you has their seat reclined, God forbid if you're in the middle or window seat and try to out.

    Wish you had been in front of me last night.
    I don't mind it if they turn around and say they are doing it so I'm prepared for the thing shoving into my knees.

    First time I've agreed with Boom on anything in a long time.

    Particularly not during dinner service. Oh, wait, they don't do that any more.

    God help the poor schnook who reclines his seat in front of Boom, that's all I'm sayin. Prepare for the longest flight of your life.

    I try not to, or if I do, it's slightly.. However, when some SOB just slams the seat in front of me back, I can put Boom to shame for the rest of the flight.

    Well, we have:

    ---The 'Two-Handed Upsie-Daisy', in which you grab the seat in front of you, and rock yourself to a standing position using the ol' one-two-three-UP-we-go;

    --The Newspaper Scalp Massage and Facial, in which you open your newspaper will arms fully extended, give it a few shakes, and show the reclined offender the daily headlines;

    --And of course, the very tragic Violently Unconrollable Restless Leg Syndrome.

    I only recline on overnight flights ... unless I'm in first class, then it's recline all day.

    As someone's who is 6'3, I despise people who recline their seats fully when sitting in front of me. And since I hate when others do it, I never do it.

    Totally agree. It's claustrophobia times two.
