If it is causing him pain or discomfort, then I think the decent thing to do would be to compromise somehow. But she definitely doesn't have to.
I don't what you can do about the guy pushing the seat. Do the flight attendants have any authority on this?

There's a level of common courtesy involved, in other words if the person behind me was in the last row and couldn't recline, and politely asked me not to recline I'd probably oblige just cuz I like to think of myself as a reasonable human.
But if I reclined and someone just started punching my chair, all that reasonableness goes out the window.

You either didn't plan ahead enough to get a better one, or didn't way to pay the extra fee to choose your seat if youre on one of those stupid airlines. Why should someone else be inconvenienced because of your cheapness or lack of foresight? If youre in that seat you just have to accept your fate and live with it for a few hours. Do better next time.

If I was in his I would probably be annoyed but more in a "fuck my life" type of way. I most likely wouldn't say anything to her because I'm generally in such a shitty mood when flying anyway that the added annoyance of a seat reclining into my face wouldn't move the needle much.
I do feel like I get irrationally angry when I see people recline before takeoff though. It's weird.

Used to be that you could recline your chair and not be completely in the shit of the passenger behind you. Airlines have long been eliminating personal space and legroom so that they could squeeze more and more rows as tight as possible. Since Sept. 11, they've been turning planes into glorified cattle cars.
