Hi all. I was looking for information about landing/ take off procedures. Is there a legal requirement or is it guidelines to say seats, tables etc should be upright?
The reason why I ask is that I'm just back from an emirates flight and cabin crew clearly witnessed the lady in front of me reclined during take off and landing but she was not asked to put her seat up. I didn't have any issue during the flight with this. This is not a seat reclining bashing topic but I seriously don't think I would have been able to brace effectively nevermind get out quick if there was an emergency. I was tempted to call for the FA but then I thought I was maybe being a little OTT and maybe it was only guidelines. Can anyone explain what is the position here and would you ever make a request for them to comply?
