I don't think the issue is touching the person next to them. it's probably too close for comfort especially for a long flight

I fly coach quite frequently and I HARDLY EVER end up touching the person next to me.
If Its a problem, Its a problem even If usually not

So don't walk in NYC or take a subway because usually you don't bump into anyone.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

these people should calmly try to solve the problem on their own. if people dont want to take a middle seat (dont blame them), then deal with it. if you dont like it, then dont fly, but dont bring down the rest of the jews with you

I don't define chillul Hashem as the Daily Mail looking down on a practice.  They look down on most of our halachos and minhagim--just it doesn't usually make the news.

How about this leading to a headline in the most read news aggregation site in the country for what any sane person would consider a selfish interpretation of law.

It does when it affects others. And that's the whole point.

Again.. This issue ain't gonna go away unless the airlines let travel agents or users buy blocks of seats/rows.
Throw their you know what in jail and watch how quickly it ends.

That card like many others get overplayed and becomes worthless.
