June 14, 2006 Anyone who has ever flown airline cattle class will be aware of the problem caused by airlines seeking to use every square inch of cabin space to optimise their profitability – specifically, when you recline your seat, you encroach on the already limited space of the person behind you. More problematic again if you’re over 180cm, when the person in front reclines their seat, it can cramp and even hurt you. Now there’s a new must-have travel accessory designed to defend your limited right to space in an aircraft. Paraphrasing Oliver Wendell Holmes famous quotation, “the right to swing my fist ends where the other man's nose begins”, the company’s catch-cry is “the right to recline my seat ends where the other man's knee begins." At US$14.95, the Knee Defender can be purchased on-line and ships to most countries.
