Viral TikTok causes intense internet debate about reclining seats on long-haul flights

Finding a comfortable position on a plane is a real pain in the neck, especially when you’re on a long-haul flight.

Do you recline your seat or is a neck pillow the way to go? Should you splurge for first class or sit in economy?

One TikTok user and travel influencer presented an issue that comes up on all flights, but especially on long-haul flights: should you recline your seat?

After presenting her scenario, she ignited an internet debate. Keep reading to see what most people said.

Taylor Futch, who goes by @tfutchh on TikTok, shared a situation on the social media app that many of us are too familiar with.While flying she reclined her seat in order to settle in and get comfortable, however the traveler behind her was unhappy so they pushed back.

“Y’all this girl just shoved my seat forward and said I’m not allowed to recline for my 10-hour flight because it’s too much for her,” Taylor wrote on a nine-second clip that has since gone viral. “What do I do?”

People were quick to respond to the 26-year-old’s issue, though they were divided about what she should do.

“Y’all are insane… if I paid for a seat that reclines imma recline it!!! And if the person behind you recline theirs also… ✨they have the same amount of room✨” a commenter reasoned.

Meanwhile someone else wrote, “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. I wouldn’t like it if someone done it to me so I don’t do it to them. ✨” Some people said they would stayed “squished,” even on a long flight because they didn’t want to inconvenience the person behind them.

There was at least one person who didn’t place the blame on the traveling public, but instead said the anger should be turned towards the airlines.

“For y’all saying it’s rude to recline, you’re actually mad at the airline. Literally email them to make the seats bigger and give you more room.”

Taylor uploaded a part two where she said she kept her seat reclined except for meal service.

What do you think? It is reasonable to recline your seat on an airplane no matter how long the flight or does the length of the flight play a part?
