I’m a mum and I always recline my plane seat except for VERY specific reasons – I don’t care if it annoys people

A MUM has sparked debate after revealing that she always reclines her seat – except for very specific reasons.

Oneika Raymond says she prioritises getting comfy on her long-haul flights and doesn’t care if it annoys people.

Oneika Raymond has admitted that she always reclines her plane seat
Her strong views divided users on TikTok

She told her followers on TikTok that people should “blame the airlines” as ultimately it was their responsibility to give people adequate room onboard.

The mum wrote: “If the seat reclines I’m reclining – except during take-off, landing and meals.

“Are you team Recline or nah,” she added.

Users in the comments quickly made their feelings known on the matter.

Siding with her, one said: “You paid for the seat. It’s not your job to make sure others are comfortable. That’s the airlines problem.”

While another added: “I love this. Last time person in front of me reclined and I kicked her back every time I moved. They complained. My legs are long. We don’t care.”

However others were less than impressed by the woman’s “selfish” behaviour.

“No regular flyers recline,” one said.



“It’s common courtesy. The only people that do are the ones that only fly for ‘special occasions”.

Another added: “I don’t recline it’s called having respect for other people.”

As a third penned: “I’m 6’0 & I never recline. I pray I never get sat behind ppl that do this.”

The mum’s admission comes just days after a traveller revealed the “evil” way she stops people reclining in the seat in front of her on planes.

She rang up Australian radio show Fitzy and Wippa and said: “When you’re flying economy and the person in front of you is very inconsiderate and reclines their chair all the way back.

“You know the air-con vents in the top, you can swivel them around.

“I just swivel it right on their face and turn it up full blast.”

For those looking to avoid such drama, one passenger has now revealed the best seat to book in economy class for flyers who want to get comfortable.

Plus, this is the UK airline with the most comfortable economy class seats.
