    here’s a synopsis:

    1) it’s easier to deplane when the seats are up. they’re already so close together that it’s a tight fit, but if they were reclined people wouldn’t be able to get out. in an emergency, that would be bad.

    2) “A reclined seat back could kill or seriously injure the passenger behind, if it should come unbolted, or if the passenger behind it is thrown forward.”

    the world is still mystifying, though, i’ll give you that.
