Get More Room When You Fly without Committing a Potential Felony

Last Updated Nov 30, 2010 11:41 PM EST

Remember the Knee Defender? It's a little gadget we told you about which physically blocks the seat in front of you from reclining. That's great, as far as it goes, but we can't help but think it's a $15 ticket to an in-flight felony.

Instead of resorting to tricks and subterfuge, Lifehacker has a much more reasonable suggestion: Just book yourself behind a seat that doesn't recline at all.

The easiest way to do this is to use a site like SeatGuru. As we've mentioned before, SeatGuru is an awesome resource with everything you could possibly want to know -- including seating charts, contact information, check-in guidelines, baggage rules, information about bringing infants and pets, and more.
