I'm surprised by how many people have said that it's rude and inconsiderate to recline seats. I've never even given it a thought. The seat reclines, it's extremely uncomfortable to be upright for long periods of time (and that includes short flights, e.g. 2-hour flights; it's unfathomable to be upright when I fly Heathrow-LAX for 11 hours straight), therefore I recline. I avoid exit rows like the plague for that very reason (I don't remember who gave the seatguru.com idea but whoever you are, thanks; I fully intend to use that site from now on). DH is very tall but I've never heard him complain when people recline. For those who mind others reclining, why don't you recline as well?
