Dear Inconsiderate Reclining Airline Passenger……….


Kudos to Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten for creating this printout. Download and print several copies for those space invading knee jamming travel experiences when seated in ‘the village’.

The handout is a civilized approach to what can be a very uncivilized and uncomfortable situation. The gift that keeps on giving. Pass it on.

    Is it really civilized to call any person an “Inconsiderate Reclining Airline Passenger”?

    I vote to allow you to make your own decision about your own seat and hope you will allow me the same.

    You ask “Is it really civilized to call any person an “Inconsiderate Reclining Airline Passenger”?”

    Dear reader, thanks for the reply. We’re not speaking of ‘any’ (reclining) passenger, only those who do so inconsiderately. We’re talking inches here, but there’s a big difference if you’re on the back end.

    For example, if I recline I seldom go all the way. And I always look back and at least have eye contact with the person seated behind before invading their space. And I’m not going to throw my seat back if he/she has a meal or laptop open on the tray table.

    It’s about consideration and moderation, not right or wrong.
