A mum has sparked debate after revealing she always reclines her seat – except for very specific reasons.
Oneika Raymond says it’s important to her to be comfortable on her long-haul flights, and she doesn’t care if it annoys people.
She told her followers on TikTok that people should “blame the airlines” as it is ultimately their responsibility to give people adequate space on board.
The mother wrote: “When the seat reclines, I recline – except for takeoff, landing and meals.
“Are you Team Recline or nah,” she added.
Users in the comments were quick to express their opinions on this topic.
One of them stood to her side and said, “You paid for the seat. It is not your job to make others happy. That’s the airlines’ problem.”
While another added: “Love this. Last time the person in front of me leaned back and I pushed them back every time I moved. They complained. my legs are long We dont care.”
Others, however, were less than impressed with the woman’s “selfish” behavior.
“No normal flyers sit back,” said one.
“That’s common courtesy. Only those who only fly on “special occasions” do that.
Another added: “I don’t sit back, that’s called respect for other people.”
As a third wrote: “I’m 6ft tall and I never sit back. I pray I’ll never sit behind people who do that.”
The mum’s admission comes just days after a traveler revealed the “nasty” way she prevents people from reclining in the seat in front of her on planes.
Calling Australian radio show Fitzy and Wippa, she said: “When you’re flying economy and the person in front of you is very inconsiderate and leans their chair all the way back.
“You know the air vents upstairs, you can swing them around.
“I just flip it right on her face and crank it full blast.”
For those wanting to avoid such drama, a passenger has now revealed the best economy class seat for passengers wanting to stretch out.
It is also the UK airline with the most comfortable seats in economy class.
