I just shut up for fear of being kicked off but I was certainly angry the other day when a seat which reclined in my face while I tried to watch a movie.

Idk maybe its just an American thing. Americans are very loud and don't seem to care about anyone else. The same thing happened on the way to America when two old ladies just flicked their seats back.. Here in the UK we rarely see reclined seats.

What does his ethnicity have to do with anything?

I'm sure your "evil stare" really showed that you are a force to be reckoned with: a grown man who needs his mommy to "make loud comments" about someone reclining their recline-able seat on an airplane.

Like I said, a grown man who needs his mommy to protect him from the world of....people reclining on airplanes.

Instead of stewing about it or doing your death glare, why didn't you just ask him to move his seat up? If he said no, then I could see a problem, but you never gave him the chance to fix the situation.

For future reference Mac15, what I quoted above is the adult way to handle such situations. You don't need your passive aggressive mother making loud comments on your behalf.

I don't see the problem to begin with. I've sat in economy with the person in front of me with their seat reclined, and been able to work on my laptop or view a movie. The people who can't are generally those with giant guts that can't put the tray table closer to themselves.

I would go so far as to say that loudly making comments about a person within earshot is far more rude than reclining your seat on an airplane.
