I think that seats should recline but not as far back as they currently do.

Actually they do state in what way a passenger needs to fit into their seat. Nowhere is seat recline mentioned.

When will we have the stand-up / lean-back harness seats? Any idea?

I just fly for work. I've never really taken a vacation. And some of the time the planes don't have any seats with extra room. And I couldn't use them anyway. Airplanes are the worst part of my job. But I'm not complaining about reclination. I hate them regardless. I don't recline.

I just booked a flight to Cincinnati, couple months in advance, $1456 on an itty bitty RJ145. Yikes! Got a couple other flights coming up but I'll be drugging myself up for this one for sure.

Whaaaaa????? That's ridiculous! I flew to Malaysia back in 2006 for less than that. And yes drugs, drugs drugs drugs.

They recline about 8 degrees. That's at the top. Near the lower part where the back attaches to the seat, it's 1-2 degrees. People are making a big deal out of something that mostly exists in their imagination. I don't think 95% of the people on this thread have been on an airplane in 20 years.

Because recline has nothing to do with it. If you can't fit with the aircraft being used in the way it's designed, you don't fit. What is so hard to grasp about that? Armrests go down and seats recline. If you don't fit with those design enhancements in place, you don't fit, buy a seat you do fit into.

You need to fire your corporate travel agent or your boss needs to fire you, because I'm seeing between $600 and $900 for FIRST CLASS R/T on the DFW>CVG route pretty much all of September and October.
