Is this a new trend?
Another fight over whether a seat should be reclined or not leading to an aeroplane diversion occurred this week.
En route from Miami to Paris, on American Airlines flight 62, passenger Edmund Alexandre demanded that the female passenger in front of him not recline her seat. After she refused, Mr Alexandre got into an altercation with the flight attendants. After grabbing one of the attendants, he was restrained by federal air marshals. The Boeing 767 then diverted to Boston.
So, is it a new trend? Are we going to see open war in the aisles of planes?
