Re: Airline seats should be fixed-back
Delta recently announced that they're going to reduce how far their seats recline by about half.
Personally, I never recline my seat on flights of less than 6 hours, and even on longer flights I rarely do, and if I do, it's only to the first detent (just to avoid slumping into the seat in front if I fall asleep). But I recognize that for some passengers sitting upright for hours is very uncomfortable.
And, yes, I blame the airlines, who do their best to make air travel unpleasant. My personal complaint is checked-luggage fees, which incentivize carry-on luggage, which makes boarding and disembarking worse for everyone and encourages all sorts of nasty behavior.
