By the way, driving to Lewiston is certainly not a hardship. My closest airport is an hour away.
Yes, as I said, two fly out of LEW.

Neither do I. I usually choose to fly out of Spokane.

Your claim was that people flying out of small airports have a choice. I showed they don't. Instead they have to take on the added expense and time of driving to a larger airport. Where, according to you, the tall ones should then take on even more expense to upgrade their seats so others can recline.

Oh give me a break. You're arguing just to argue, it's pathetic.

Like I said, you could live next to ATL and still have limited choices flying to smaller airports. The choices can be maximized by driving an extra 45 minutes. Some people want to have their cake...

I often have to go to State College, Harrisburg, and Syracuse. Three very expensive airports to get in and out of. Instead I fly into PHL, PIT, EWR, BWI, etc. and drive.

It's called a choice for a reason, and there is one. Those who don't want someone to use the recline button can CHOOSE to buy a seat in an exit row, a bulkhead, comfort plus, business, etc.

Pathetic is the people who won't take responsibility for their own comfort and wallet and use the choices they have.

Lucky that you have the flexibility to do so!

I think Annerk is simply living up to its moniker. Anarchy.

It's not a secret, anybody can do so. Sometimes I need to get a 5:30 am flight to make it work, and then I recline my seat to catch some zzz's before the drive. My employer appreciates me saving them money.

It's sad when someone desperately needs to have the last word.
