Is the Knee Defender the air passenger’s new friend — or just a way to make foes?
As Australia’s News.com.au reports, the fight between those who want to recline their seats during a flight and those who need that precious little leg room has been sparked anew by one Reddit.com user.
The flyer, who posted under the name As-Uswag, said he received a card from a fellow passenger who alerted him he’d be using a Knee Defender during the flight, a gadget that keeps seats from reclining too much. The Knee Defender comes with — clever? annoying? — note cards that alert other passengers you are using the pocket-sized device.
The Reddit user shared a photo of the note card he had posted to Imgur, writing “Guy sitting behind me on the plane handed me this as I was finding my seat before take off (my seat was up). I had no idea what to say.”
Knee Defender clips onto the tray table to prevent the seat ahead of you from reclining too much. See how it works in the FareCompare video below.
So what do you think? Clever way to keep people from reclining their seat too much or just a way to annoy fellow passengers? Share your thoughts in the comments.
