No it's not. In fact not even close. The person using the recline function is using the function the airline provides.

I really do not care if people recline their seats on a long flight but anything under 4 hours is too much there is no reason.
The fact that you think RyanAir is fantastic says a lot about you. It also makes me think that you are never on a plane more than 90 minutes or so.

And why don't you just charter private jets? That way you're far away from the riff-raff. And you can do whatever you like (within reason) on your rent-a-jet.

Best of all, that gets you far away from the general public. Win-win.

The seats are practically vertical! If they could be in a set position that is at a bit more of an angle that would help the issue. I don't know what the limits are in terms of safety...

I paid for a seat with leg room. I should be able to access it.

You should learn to play more than one note.

I'm not the one asking for special accommodation. Seems you are the one who should be paying for the private jet.

After years of experimentation, I've found that by inserting a ribbed, sharpened paper clip bend at a 45 degree angle into the gap of the recline button at the 5 o-clock position and rotating it CCW (under no circumstance should you rotate it CW!) 90 degrees, will allow my seat to recline back to a full 30 degree angle from the vertical position.

Your one note is flat and off-key.
