We have arrived on holiday
But I do have a rant about the flight, not the flight itself (first time on a Dreamliner) because it was fine, smooth and noticeably quieter than other aircraft.
But it's the stupid selfish ignorant people who try and recline their seat
You don't have much room to start with, although the Dreamliner was decent in leg room but lacking in shoulder room. But it gets worse when some selfish git infront feels they need an extra 3 inches of space. This was not a short flight either, 9 hrs to Dom rep, but even if it had been a 30 min flight it would have been the same.
I asked her politely if she would mind not reclining her seat as it meant I had no room, could not see the TV, could not use my iPad or put my table down. She huffed and reluctantly agreed, but since it is a holiday flight and they are likely to be here for 2 weeks also we will have to joys of sitting behind them on the way back. She said when we landed that we had to understand that we will NEED to recline the seat on the return flight. I'm sorry, but why do you NEED to recline the seat
you do not get that much more room, you are going to be asleep so what difference does it make and why should I HAVE to be more uncomfortable just so you can get a 2% more comfortable snooze
Reclining seats in economy should be banned. I'm just gonna put my table down the whole flight, locks the seat so it can't be reclined
