Seat recline during meals

As a flight attendant, I ALWAYS ask people to put their seats up for the meal services. Those valuable inches can really make a difference in the blood flow of your legs in economy!"


The above is what I always believed should happen if a passenger does not return to upright position during meal service. But on a recent AirBerlin flight, the woman ahead of me remained fully reclined and the attendant said nothing.

When she passed me my tray, I asked her to have the person in my lap straighten their seat. She said "you should ask her yourself." I shook my head in disagreement - it's not my job (is it?) to instruct passengers, who may be sleeping or non-English speaking.

I wonder if this responsibility varies by airline or by attendant?
(If airlines now are self-policing I'd like to supervise size of carry on bags!)
