A United Flight Was Diverted Because a Guy Used a Tool to Keep a Woman's Seat From Reclining


Reclining your seat on a plane might be a little selfish . . . but taking away someone ELSE'S ability to recline their seat isn't cool either.
 
There's a little device called the Knee Defender that's been on the market for at least a decade that lets you do just that.  It costs $22, clips onto the legs of the tray table on the seat in front of you . . . and somehow blocks the seat from reclining.
 
Well . . . a 48-year-old guy on a United flight from Newark to Denver had the Knee Defender, and he was using it to block the 48-year-old woman in front of him from reclining her seat.
 
She figured out what was going on, and asked a flight attendant to have him take the Knee Defender off.  The guy refused . . . so the woman stood up, turned around, and threw a cup of WATER on him.
 
The pilot diverted the flight to Chicago . . . where both of them were escorted off the plane.  The plane landed in Denver without the two of them about an hour and a half late.
 
No charges were filed, and even though the Knee Defender is RUDE, it IS technically legal under FAA rules . . . although all of the major airlines, including United, say they've banned it on their flights.  (Gizmodo / NBC 9 - Denver)
