Re: The Golden Age of flying is over
Yeah, it's not "spreadsheets on a laptop" that we're worried about here. I'm pretty tall, and if the person in front of me reclines their seat it will slam directly into my knees. There is no reason at all for economy seats to recline, it's a practice from back when there was actually space to do so. If I'm on a flight I now jam the recline mechanism of the seat in front of me (if I'm unable to get a bulkhead seat, as I attempt to immediately at booking time every time, but quite often they're booked up somehow, months and months in advance). The other option is to splay my legs into the lap of the people beside me, which is heaps of fun as you can imagine.
But, I hear you say, why don't you book a more expensive seat? Well, quite often there is no option, or if there is it's only first class for 10x the price. But I will say, no economy seat should be reclining unless they're actually putting them far enough apart to accommodate the passengers behind. I'm not sawing my legs off to fit on a plane.
P.S. 6' is not that tall, you're only slightly over average height.
