Having a bit of me time at JLS Connections potluck. Yeah, I know. That's not what potlucks are for. And even less the JLS Connection potluck. But whatever. It still felt good :-)

If you travel more than I do, this is an interesting question. Who owns the space behind reclining seat.

I must admit I flip-flopped in my answer to the question over the years. As much as I dislike when person in front of me reclines his seat, I must admit it's his right. The airline sold them reclining seat. The button to recline seat is under their control and out of my reach.

However, I still think implementation is wrong, and it is the design of the seat causing all the problems and conflicts between passengers. The problem is not in reclining or not reclining, or who owns the space. The problem is that person who reclines is not making any tradeoffs. He gains more comfort, the person behind loses comfort. From that point of view, the answer is clear. Always recline because it is in your best interest.

If instead, the seat was designed to slide forward as it reclines, the person behind is not losing any space (may even gain some). The person in front would have to make tradeoff between his own legroom and how upright the seat is. No conflicts with other passengers. Some of the business and first class seats already work this way. By reclining, the passenger makes tradeoff within his own space, they are not affecting passenger behind.

Of course, depending on seat pitch and legroom, this may not be feasible in the worst of the economy class. But it could be used to differentiate economy and economy-plus. With the switch to non-reclining economy seats, and sliding/reclining economy-plus seats, with latter having to provide sufficient seat pitch to accommodate this design.

Chris Froome, 3-time Tour de France winner, got hit by a car. Claims driver hit him on purpose, then fled. If you wonder, yes, that bike costs more than your car.

Lest I be accused stalking bicycles at Stanford, I did take some normal shots too.
