Woman who was harassed for reclining her plane seat speaks out

Airplane passenger Wendi Williams hit the headlines when her video of a man continuously pushing the back of her seat after she had reclined it went viral.

Whilst on an airplane, Wendi decided to recline her seat due to problems with her neck and spine. The man behind her asked her to put the chair up whilst he ate his food, which she agreed to, but once he was finished Wendi reclined her chair once again.

After reclining for the second time, Wendi said, 'There was no conversation, he just started punching, not what you see in the video, but full on punching to where I was flying forward.'

Wendi decided to film him in an attempt to encourage him to stop, but to her shock the man continued. When asked by Phil if it had become a 'battle of wills', Wendi explained why she didn't put her seat up: "It wasn't even something I thought about, I just wanted him to stop."

The video of the man pushing Wendi's chair is over six minutes long. Once Wendi stopped filming, a flight attendant, who Wendi describes as being unsympathetic, gave her a passenger disturbance notice.

Passenger disturbance notices are given to people who are thought to be breaking the in-flight rules. The note Wendi received read: 'You should immediately cease your behaviour if you wish to avoid prosecution and your removal from this airline at the point of your next arrival.'

The man’s behaviour was extreme - but do you think it's right to recline your seat in the first place?
