Row between two passengers over reclining seat on flight divides opinion – but who’s in the right?

A WOMAN is divided after a person on a plane told her not to recline her seat so she can use her laptop during a flight.

The TikTok user, who goes by the name “leads.to.keys,” shared her story on a six-hour flight.

In one video, she said: “So I recline my seat and the girl behind me IMMEDIATELY tells me that if I recline she can’t use her laptop (didn’t ask me not to recline – more of a statement with the expectation .

“So I returned the seat to its normal position, although I want it reclined for this six-hour flight.

The video has been viewed more than 620,000 times, but people were divided over who was right.

A few people agreed with the woman – one wrote: “If the chair can recline then you can.

“It’s ridiculous to think that you have to be uncomfortable with what the Joker wants behind you.”

A second user added: “Once a tall guy asked me not to sit back on an overnight flight to St. Lucia. No chance. Pay for extra legroom or don’t go.”

A member of the cabin crew also weighed in on the dispute, calling it “minor”.

They said: “You have the right to sit back. You can also lean back.

However, others said the TikTok user was at fault, arguing it wasn’t fair to the person sitting behind her.

One person explained: “Beach chairs shouldn’t be allowed in Economy! It’s just torture for the person behind you (especially for people who are tall and have long legs!”

A frequent flyer agreed: “I never recline my seat out of respect for those behind me.

Someone else also said, “Lmao, you don’t have to sit back for a 6-hour flight. You will survive.”

Many people agreed that one should only recline to sleep during long night flights, but not for the rest of the flight.

In 2020, a passenger became furious when their Apple MacBook Pro was destroyed during a flight – after the person in front reclined their seat.

Etiquette experts have explained when you should and shouldn’t recline your seat.

And experts have also revealed why you should never really recline — because that’s not the best way to sleep.

Many people have said that it's only okay to sit back during a night flight
