Reclining in the air

There have been several recent stories about outbreaks on airplanes due to passengers reclining their seats. I may be next. The way most airlines configure their seats it makes it virtually impossible to hold a book or laptop while flying, and try getting out of your seat to go to the restroom.

I had the misfortune on a trans-Pacific flight to be scrunched into one of the peasant class seats which also had some sort of airline apparatus box under the seat in front of me making it impossible to stretch out my already cramped legs. I know that revenue depends on how many peasants can be crammed into a plane, but have a heart!
