The current seats are quite comfortable and fairly new and I find the current pitch sufficient for short haul flights. I'm baffled by this proposal!

The old seats must have been in place for 20 years before the current ones and now they want to rip then out and fit an inferior product? The lack of a headrest is a big downgrade, I can't stand seats where anyone over 6 foot can't lean their heads against something!

The misery of enforced team sports in the rain nearly put me off exercise for life.

Now if my school had run power yoga classes ... that’s more my cup of tea.

People are currently paying huge premiums for what many would laugh at and they'll continue to - even without a recline I expect.
ARN Syndrome?

Legroom aside... hopefully these new seats will bring the promised at seat power! Surely this would go in at the same time as new seats to avoid further retrofitting.

When was this promised?

I wouldn't bet on it ...
