Again.. This issue ain't gonna go away unless the airlines let travel agents or users buy blocks of seats/rows.

This isn't a chill Hashem. Hashem has nothing to do with this.  This is a chilul haJews. The misogynistic, anachronistic, racist Torah Taliban of today make the rest of us modern Jews look bad.  But just like with the Muslims, there are a lot of fundamentalists out there but also a lot of good ones.

Or until the Jewish leadership tell their followers to stop being idiots.

Yes, I noticed that too. They'd never touch their spouse in public let alone a sister. Maybe a young daughter.

But they trash the religion as a whole. Hence the chillul hashem.

I don't even get it.
Unless you're obese why do you have to touch the person next to you?

I fly coach quite frequently and I hardly ever end up touching the person next to me.

i think for your average person in a middle seat for 10 hours including bathroom, davening, etc, it is impossible to not, at least once, incidentally make contact with the person next to you. most of us would view it as, just that, incidental contact with no hirhurim and get on with our lives, trying to avoid it where possible. but these "ultra orthodox" dont view it that way
