Uproar after in-flight seat squabble diverts plane Published: August 27, 2014

The debate over whether it’s acceptable for air passengers to recline their seats has been dividing frequent flyers for years, according to Yahoo Travel.

So perhaps it was inevitable that it would get physical.

You’ve probably heard of a scuffle that broke out this weekend on board a United Airlines flight between two passengers who were debating that very point. The Associated Press reports a female passenger tried to recline her seat, only to be blocked by the guy behind her who had what’s called a “Knee Defender” — a $22 device, banned on United and most other major U.S. carriers, you clip on the seat in front of you to prevent it from reclining.
