| I flew from Perth to Brisbane leaving Perth at 11.30pm. I get that it's a cheap no frills flight at an awkward time. Generally I can cope with the leg room and lack of frills, but I was given a seat in row 11. This row is in front of the emergency exit and therefore the seat does not recline. I opted not to pay an extra $6 to choose a seat because when I checked in the seat was next to window and there seemed no reason to change it. I didn't know the seat did not recline. The flight was 4 hours 20 mins. Naturally the man in front of me had his seat reclined the whole way, it was a night flight. The man next to me asked why his seat didn't recline and was told they would move him, but the plane was full. It was not, people at the back were sleeping stretched out over 3 seats. My point is it is unfair to allocate these seats particularly on a night flight when the flight is not full. To put up with over 4 hours wedged in an upright position with the seat in front fully reclined is unreasonable and as the flight was not full, completely avoidable.
