Alvarez remarks that being able to recline is crucial for her on long flights. And that sitting up right for four or five hours is an ordeal.

sit upright 背筋を伸ばして座る
Sit with one’s posture erect, you know, in a straight, vertical position. Things like, the baby’s getting so big. She can sit up right now. Or, to use a slight variation, I was bent over with a stomachache. I couldn’t stand up right. It hurts so badly.

Here, “go for” means be true of, apply to. So, we’re saying something is true of A and B. If it applies to A, it also applies to B. For example, you might say, she needs to check her work more carefully. In fact, the same goes for all of us, you know, we need to be more diligent. Or, you could take “the” off and say, in fact, same goes for all of us. Adding the “the” just makes it a little more formal.
