Even though the seats go back just a little, it is very annoying, and not worth the effort. Fix the seats so we don't have this issue.

5+ hour mechanical delay, no compensation or apology. Finally got on a different flight standby. Man was vaping on plane before departure. He was reprimanded twice but was incoherent and they kept him on the plane passed out in the emergency exit row. Not a safe decision.
