Seat reclining in modern economy-class seats is a problem when person in front of you reclines, but you are still in vertical position.

Has there been a consideration of simultaneous reclining of all the seats at the same time right after take-off?

    $\begingroup$ I thought they were going out of their way to create a miserable experience. The only way to make this worse would be to randomly move the seatbacks up at random intervals and speeds. $\endgroup$ – acpilot Aug 19 '19 at 23:39

    $\begingroup$ The only way? The low-cost airlines seem to be very creative in making a bad experience worse! $\endgroup$ – CatchAsCatchCan Aug 19 '19 at 23:45

  • $\begingroup$ Your proposal would add several tons of weight to the aircraft by motorizing all the seats. $\endgroup$ – Hobbes Aug 21 '19 at 18:05
