I don't know, while I rather the person in front of me not recline I wouldn't use a knee defender on "any trip to Aruba". It just seems rude. I had never heard of the defender until the news report. Also vertically challenged at 4' 11" I have no issues with leg room. My feeling is people should use common sense when reclining and try not to leave it in that position for the entire trip.
Strangely enough, we've never had a recline incident flying from Canada to Aruba... only in Europe! I did have a woman put her bare feet on my thigh once as she was trying to sleep in the fetal position in the middle seat on a flight from Oranjestad to Toronto.
In that case, I think I would have needed an "Idiot Defense".
IMHO..... 4'11" and 5'3" are not short....... simply 'Fun Sized'......
Back to topic...... if you feel you need a knee defender, sit behind an exit row where the seats don't recline or pay the upgrade for more space! I'm sure anyone using this device would go ballistic if the person behind them did the same!

When I saw this on the news my first thought was aren't these people tampering with the airplane? This seems like it should not be allowed. I never recline my seat I too am "Fun Sized" at 5' 2 1/2". Thanks CP for making my day! I may have to copy your saying as I LOVE IT!
I think Andrea is very considerate to ask the person in back of her to let her know if it bothers them. Maybe if more people were as considerate people would not need to try using these contraptions. What will people think of next is my question
I have to say I hate it when the person in front of me reclines, but that is their right to do so and they paid a nice price for the flight just like I did. Who am I to say something? My kids are usually changing seats and getting up to move around so it likely pretty annoying to the reclined person as the kids may hit into the back of the seat. We are all stuffed in a little metal tube together, we really have to make the best of it
