Being squished in economy class on a flight, especially if it's a long one, can be one of the least enjoyable parts of your vacation. Did you know that there is a way to get more room for yourself and it has been there this whole time, but you just haven't known about it?!
Thanks to The Independent, we are now aware of the secret button and it could be the airline hack you never knew you needed! On the arm rests of plane seats in the aisle, there is a rarely-ever-talked-about-button, which allows the arm rest to be put up completely.
All you have to do is press the button, and simple reach under the armrest and feel by the hinge where you should find the release button. This hack is often used by the cabin crew when they're seating passengers who require special assistance as well as making airplane evacuations easier.
Next time you're on a flight and want to stretch out into the aisle, try that secret button and you may never look back.
