Free Beer & Hot Wings: Airline Passenger Uses Knee Defender to Prevent Reclining Seat, Flight Diverted [Video]
Everyone has been on a flight where the person in front of them jacks the seat back so far that you're basically staring at the top of their head in your lap.
It sucks, but it's just kind of how it is. After all, you can always do the same to the person in back of you!
When the passenger in that seat complained, a United employee asked the passenger to remove the device. He refused, and the woman who could not recline her seat flipped out. She stood up and threw a cup of water in the guy's face.
The decision was then made to divert the flight to Chicago, where the two passengers in question were removed from the flight. No arrests were made, and the flight then continued to Denver, The Associated Press and USA Today reported.
United says that the use of such devices are prohibited on its flights.
