Apparently several airlines have banned the Knee Defender, but some flyers still swear by them. We've always assumed a seat that wouldn't recline was broken and just sucked it up- perhaps in the future we'll at least make the flight attendant aware of the problem on the off-chance the Knee Defender is in use.
