Are things really becoming about comfort instead of destination? Both factors have to be taken into consideration, standing for several hours is not the best thing to do. Unless airlines who are struggling want to start a super economy trend and allow as many passengers with luggage as a plane can handle with a standing room passenger area. I'm not to keen on this one. There should be enough room for everyone and everyone should be able to recline in a seat he or she sits in. Often times on a plane the tray is connected to the back of the airplane seat so when the person in front of you reclines his or her seat the tray moves along with the seat, so if something should spill or drop and become damaged as a result-whose responsibility is it, the passenger who reclined his or her seat or the airline? Would they ask you if you purchased onboard insurance in the likelyhood that if something like this were to happen you would be reimbursed? This is probably why passengers make efforts to secure the tray they are using on the plane so they don't have situations like this, that can become costly if they are not reimbursed. By now doing this, it prevents the person seated in front of you from reclining their seat. The problem with airlines is that they do not take a classroom approach to seating. This is probably because life and learning evolves and takes place outside of the classroom, so they neglect what happens when you place a book on a tray that suddenly becomes adjusted by another person. Life and the lessons in it. Personally, if you cannot afford your own air travel and are subjected to flying on somebody elses ride with other folk
maybe a personal portable tray harness can be worn and used to hold your drink or food, by folding out, if the other persons reclining interrupts you. Airlines need to adapt to the classroom seating structure of the adjustable stand that exists on the side of each persons seat so that the tray can just simply be slid out when needed and not be affected or the contents on it affected by someone reclining their seat. This is what is needed by the airlines to avoid such problems that occur with
airline seat reclining.
I always thought there were enough problems when flying on an airplane. An airplane and equipment must be in functioning order so that it can be flown, the pilots on board along with the stewardesses must not have any hidden agendas; and of course the passengers should all want to get to their earthly destination.
For passengers with health conditions, it is important for them to be able to move around in their seats to ensure adequate blood flow throughout their body. This can also be said for a healthy person. In doing so, this reduces DVT or deep vein thrombosis. This is caused by a blood clot in a vein in the leg that gets lodged in the vein wall. On an airplane when a person is sitting in a cramped space and not able to move for hours can cause blood to circulate through the body slowly. Once this occurs, slow moving blood can form a clot in the legs. An embolus or pulmonary embolus occurs when part of a blood clot has broken off and travels through the bloodstream and goes through the veins of the heart and ultimately ends up in a blood vessel of the lung. Wow, this is a lot of travel without wings, and as such this is a crash that needs to be averted!
So where should the passengers or perhaps the survivors land?
If you're sitting on your A--, as it is-why don't you just pay it backwards?
It would seem as since many airplanes are not designed for total comfort, in that it does not make
a difference if you fly in coach, economy or in the cargo area with the exception of first class in regards to having enough room to bunk up and then some. Because of the risk, however small that can occur with regards to DVT the airlines should offer disposable travel compression socks, as a result of passengers who may not be able to recline their seats for any length of time due to a passenger who decides to tray protect during their flight to avoid unnecessary spills and damages to items as a result of being in the squish section seats of an airplane. By doing this can reduce potential health problems related to travel. When a passenger prevents you from reclining your seat- tell em' to put a sock in it!
