Our new seats were in the middle of Y, surrounded by a large, loud family. I got up and spoke to the CSM during boarding, and explained the situation to her, who didn't seem at all surprise that everyone else had made it someone else's problem, and now it was hers.
Isn't this SOP on BA? A type of conflict avoidance if you like. Why sort a problem out if you can pass the buck to someone else and make it their problem?

Just like the issue of hand baggage, why challenge people with excessive baggage when it can be left for the CC to sort out?
