If you were me, would you send a letter to the airlines on this one or just let it be?
Coming home from ARUBA on the last leg of our flight the passenger in the seat in front of me fully reclined his seat as soon as he sat down and refused to fasten his seat belt on take off-ok-I probably would not really have noticed except he coughed so hard the ENTIRE trip is seat was moving, literally. We have all flown with a cold, this was not that or so it seems-but ok. as we approach the time to land the flt attendant approaches again! She tells him to bring his seat up, tray up, fasten seat belt. No response... I look at her as what again, no rules .......she says to me under her breath he is not compliant, YOU THINK! I am aghast as I believe the rules are for all who fly these days. she then takes her seat for landing, again he has his seat fully reclined and no seat belt on! We land and it is so much fun to try and get out of your aisle with a guy whose seat is fully reclined. Is it me or not? If one person chooses to not follow any rules why should the rest? Wasn't this a safety issue if nothing else? I ask this question before I send off a useless letter to the airline asking why this was allowed?? And I stand prepared to be "flamed" by those who say live and let be! I just have never seen anything like this before! And if there are no rules to be enforced on the plane, then what the heck!! I am looking forward to hearing what others have to say!
