Knees Squeezed? Try This!

I'm not vertically challenged. I enjoyed flying American when it had extra leg room, and was disappointed after AA reversed itself. If available, I ask for an exit row, aisle seat. I suspect some readers may know what I'm talking about.

The dreaded seat recliner.

You know, the person in front of you who insists on reclining as soon as the plane lifts off, and then plants the back of the seat firmly into your knees. Not to mention what happens to your laptop.

Now, there's hope - and controversy. Thanks to the Knee Defender, a small Tic-tac sized block of plastic. Slide it down on the metal bar of your seat tray up against the seat back in front of you, and viola!, no more bruised knees. The inventor claims it prevents deep vein thrombosis, also known as economy class syndrome.

Not everyone is happy, though. Northwest Airlines has banned the less than $10.00 device. Other airlines are studying it.

In the meantime, I'm buying it.
