If someone puts back their seat just do what the rest of us do: tolerate it and realize we're literally all in the same frightful situation together. Williams smiles for the camera as her seat rocks her back and forth.
While Williams received some sympathy online, a few people blamed her and said that nobody should recline their seat while flying.
"I've lost time at work, had to visit a doctor, got x-rays, and have has awful headaches for a week", she explained.
None of those warnings described what went down on the commercial flight from New Orleans to Charlotte on January 31.
"The safety and comfort of our customers and team members is our top priority, and our team is looking into the issue", the carrier said.
Republic Airways emailed a almost identical statement. Everything from who has ownership over the armrest (etiquette experts told CNN in 2014 the passenger in the middle seat gets both) to which animals qualify as "emotional support" creatures (a new federal proposal would ban ESAs like peacocks, potbelly pigs and iguanas from flights) have ignited fierce debate. She complied with his request, saying she reclined it once he had finished eating.
Williams, a mother-of-one from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, said that the worst of the "punching" happened before she started filming.
People on the other side saw a privileged white male bullying a woman.
When American Airlines responded to her tweet, asking her to send them a direct message to try to resolve the issue, she accused of them trying to keep the incident quiet. "I would have reprimanded the passenger that was expressing the aggressive behaviour". "So it is unfair for the person in front to recline their seat". "The man behind her assaulted her chair", she said.

Weather warnings are in place across much of Scotland ahead of the arrival of Storm Dennis at the weekend. A weather warning had been in place from 10am on Saturday, February 15 until midnight that night.
Of course people should still be polite. "He was angry that I reclined my seat and punched it about 9 times", she wrote.
The viral video sparked discussion on social media about reclining seats, and whether they should be allowed on flights.
It's also common courtesy not to recline during meal service.
In a separate tweet, Williams alleged the flight attendant told her to delete the video. For some, this showed that he still had sufficient room.
She then asked for the flight attendant's name and was served a Passenger Disturbance Notice, Williams said.
The true villain in this tale may just be the airline.
After complaining to the stewardess, Williams said that the American Eagle worker told the man - who appears to have been seated in the back row of the aircraft - that it was "tight back there" and gave him a free rum drink. "It always boils down to a lack of good design".
"I'm no saint, but I have seen enough videos of the wrong person being escorted off the plane!" she said.
With ever-declining legroom on planes, "the nature of the environment makes it very hard to be civil", she said. The idea that it's commonly accepted bad manners to recline our seats in airlines is wild to me because, well, the seats are created to recline. In April 2019, Delta Air Lines announced that it would try reducing the recline from four inches to two on 62 A320 planes used for flights less than two hours. The punching seems to have begun after the seat was reclined post-exchange.
