After a sagetravels reader shared his experience on what supposed to be a long-haul flight turned to a long-suffering flight, I came to realized that every little space counts on a long-haul flight. I was excited when I read an article written by Telegraph travel writer Hugh Morris on how he discovered a button that can give passengers more space on plane seats on a British Airways flight.
According to the writer, this secret button is located under the armrest at the aisle seat. Literally, what it does is to allow passengers to put armrest which is usually locked in place – down.
The pros of this secret button are, it gives passengers more room and it makes it easy for a passenger to get out of the seat fast. While the con (disadvantage) is, every passenger that walks down the aisle will smash you.
Sorry to disappoint you, this secret button is just for the aisle seats only. It’s not like the large button that is found on every seat, it can only be found under the armrest, not by the side.
Have you used this button before? Does it really give more space?
