The Knee Defender - The Best Invention For Years
« on: August 28, 2014, 10:26:00 am »



The Knee Defender consists of two small pieces of plastic which clip the arms of your fold-down table,
and prevents the passenger in front from pushing their seat back.

Tried that on numerous occasions but never seems to work, people who recline are usually too thick to get the message  :P

Nor do Ryanair's  ;D

Just had an email about their new Business Class introduced today too.

We have flights booked for next week with them (not to Fue) and again for Xmas (to Fue  ;D ) so I may look into this. We fly about 6 times a year with RA, love 'em  ;D ;D

Got a price for going out on their new business class - double the price so I think I will stick to cattle class! Incidentally I have noticed on recent flights that the vast majority are not priority boarding, so presumably are just taking a chance with auto seat allocation.

Not making yourself very popular there Cathy most people on this forum have a great dislike of those who recline.

Just looked at the link.Does it mean you have to keep your table in the dropped position for the whole journey. Think i would find this as equally annoying.

I say if the seats have a recline function. Then it's there to be used.

I think we have a troll here ^^^^^^^

Zedzed in reply to you I think as soon as you put that table up to slide across to visit the toilet those sneaky varmits will have their seats pushed back when you return. All hail RA for non movable seats  ;D ;D

OO Hev, you wouldn`t be a lickle luv and have a look on your paperwork for me would you? I have a flight booked for Fuerte next month and I cannot for the life of me remember if I booked seats, there is nowt on my booking confirmation and I`ve looked on "manage my booking" and can`t find any reference to seat allocation so I probably didn`t. Now I`m having second thoughts because the on line check in period for non allocated seats is a week, whereas seat allocation is thirty days.  Which means of course that I will have to check in on line in Corralejo for the return journey. Not that it`s a huge problem, just a bit irritating . tia

It seem's they are banned in America

Am I allowed to use Knee Defenderâ„¢ on commercial aircraft?
   
The FAA has indicated that Knee Defenderâ„¢ may be used on commercial aircraft.  As reported in the Washington Post,  "FAA spokesman Paul Takemoto said the clips were not against federal aviation rules as long as they weren't used during taxiing, takeoffs or landings."  Of course, Knee Defenders are designed to be used with your tray table lowered, and your tray table must be up and locked "during taxiing, takeoffs or landings."
