Sorry, but why would you fly such a short distance? I know the Irish rail system is limited but it should be an overall quicker option??

Not having a pop, I'm even surprised there is such a service.

It’s a no from me. And I think it’s a no from the majority.

However, just done some internal flights in India, it seemed the majority did. And their manners on disembarking are non existent.

On the way back from Cuba a couple of years back the girl behind my girlfriend started hitting the back of the seat when she wouldn't move it forward. My mrs being the little grass that she is called the steward who said to her that she's paid for the seat for the duration of the flight and she can (within reason) do what she wants with it.

Since having the 'official' word on it that's my view be it long haul or short haul. If the person behind doesn't like it then they could always... recline their seat too

Very selfish to recline, especially without warning. People don't ease the seat back they tend to fall back.
I've been injured several times by people in front, I simply can't get my legs out of the way.
I used to get wound up and bounce the seat with my knees but have found a diplomatic solution in recent years. After boarding I stand in the aisle next to the person in front so they can see what a freak I am and ask politely if they could please let me know if they are about to recline. I guess this makes them think about the situation and literal impact it has on me and don't recline.
Mostly I just accept that I have to pay for extra legroom, this week just one flight cost me £98 extra to sit in an extra leg room seat.

Sorry I should have said LHR-DUB, BHD-LHR, thanks to cpfc4evandeva for his/her attention to details, better than mine.

My input (I'm 6' 2") is reclining my seat does not add much or any comfort to me. At best I might be able to get my legs under the seat in front of me better at the expense of bruised shins, but more often then not I have a backpack under the seat in front, so becomes null and void.

As for the person in front of me reclining there seat... the only time it sort of annoys me is when I given a meal/drinks and need the tray down (even if its just a coke or coffee with a bag of nuts). I find it becomes pretty claustrophobic having the seat headrest in front in my face and the tray access limited.

Like others, I just suck it up and accept I drew a short straw that day... its not comfortable after an hour or so either way, so I just suck it up and hopefully find a book to read or a movie to watch to take my mind off the discomfort.

I should add that I/we used to ask for and invariably got an exit row seat which gives you more legroom, but the cheeky feckers have started charging extra for them (at least on American).

Bliss is when there are a few of those seats empty and the flight attendant comes to you and asks that as I'm tall would I/we like to move there. Well it has happened once or twice, but seems every flight I've taken recently is 100% full, so no chance.

Last week I was asked to move from an exit row by the staff and the reason? I was wearing a hearing aid in one ear. I don't normally even wear it but just wanted to sure I heard the announcements for gate changes etc. Fortunately I was just allocated the seat and hadn't paid upfront but this was a new one on me.

Whilst posting this he would attach a pic of his seat cushion that said “first” on it.

It is a bit annoying when someone reclines before the flight has even took off. Doesn’t bother me that much my Five and eight year old usually encourage them to recline back pretty sharpish.

Curtain, food and fawning.

The main differences are not flight-related (on short haul) but are about making the airport experience (at either end) a lot less unpleasant.

It’s only my opinion.
