Would you make a big deal about not being able to recline your seat on an airplane?

On a flight Sunday from Newark, N.J. to Denver, one passenger was unable to recline back, causing a heated argument with the passenger behind him/her.

The United Airlines flight had to divert to Chicago O'Hare International Airport where the two passengers were met by TSA agents.

The dispute started when on passenger started using a Knee Defender, which prevents the seat in front of them from reclining.

The device is banned by all U.S. airlines.

The flight eventually continued on to Denver, without the two passengers.

TSA deemed the incident a "customer service issue," and the passengers were not arrested.
