Whine Wednesdays Legs Up 2

Is it ok to put up your legs when sitting on the bulkhead on these single aisle aircraft? I was flying on China Eastern or Southern (can never tell the difference) few weeks ago and fellow pax were stretching their legs.


I have to stay that I tend to sometime rest my legs when sitting on the bulkhead but rather using the pouch intended for reading material as a support.

Actually, I have to say that I don’t mind this as long as long as people stretch their legs against the wall instead of other passengers’ seats. I like to stretch my legs during the flights as well

So what is your take? Should people sitting on bulkhead stretch their legs like on the photo above?
