WATCH: ‘He Punched Really Hard’ Woman Reclined Chair on Airplane Interview on Fox News

VIDEO: Man repeatedly hits woman’s airplane seat because she reclines – WATCH

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – The airplane etiquette debate of 2020 – to recline or not to recline?

The question has since resurfaced after an American Airlines passenger filmed the man behind her repeatedly hitting her seat because she reclined her chair.

She posted the video on Twitter and it has since gone viral.

“Here’s a great jackhole!” Wendi Williams tweeted on Feb. 8. “He was angry that I reclined my seat and punched it about 9 times – HARD, at which point I began videoing him, and he resigned to this behavior. The other jackhole is the @AmericanAir flight attendant who reprimanded me and offered him rum!”

The Sunday Telegraph can reveal that the retired 64-year-old is behind the construction of a cutting-edge vessel by the Dutch superyacht specialist Feadship.

The custom build is based on blueprints for the 112-metre design “Aqua” publicized last year at the Monaco Yacht Show by the Dutch marine architects Sinot to draw environmentally sensitive billionaires. It said the plans took “inspiration from the lifestyle of a discerning, forward-looking owner”.
