Of all the travel tips and travel hacks out there, this one has been the most useful. One big problem with air travel is legroom, especially in economy class. Travel advice and flying tips are dime a dozen, but this simple travel hack with save you a lot of discomfort if you end up with a aisle seat. This is one of the best tips I’ve found, and one I think everyone should know.

Under the arm wrest of the aisle seat there is a secret button. Pressing this switch lifts the armrest up, and allows you to have much more leg room, and leg movement, especially when you need to exit the row.

80% of airplanes have this feature, but unfortunately not all of them do. It is there for flight attendants to left the armrest to allow for ease of exit during an emergency, and also for the disabled.

Travelers rejoice, those long haul flights might have gotten a little more comfortable, and air transport a little more enjoyable. It’s basically one of my travel essentials now.

As a travel vlogger, this legroom button has saved my life. Enjoy one the top flight attendant secrets

Mykul Saijoo says:

Not all seats have that button. Depends on the manufacturer and whomever assembled the seat in the back shop. I used to work for UAL.

April Jackson says:

How did you not know this? It’s also like that on busses & trains. Sometimes it’s just harder to find/different to access. Hadn’t you ever gotten to the seat with it up already? I’ve only flown a couple of times & remember them walking by and putting it down on one flight.

You are not suppose to block the isle. So anyone who sticks their leg out deserves to get it whacked.

Dilbagh Singh says:

You taking the mickey. How did that give you extra legroom

John Boy says:

Please explain how by lifting up an armrest it gives you more legroom.

RV says:

Whatever, or whomever led you to believe you look good in those hats did you a terrible disservice.  You look like a semi-retarded cancer patient.
