A WOMAN has revealed a hidden button that can give passengers more room on flights.
Plane cabins are among some of the least comfortable places to sit, especially if it's a long haul journey.
However, there are clever ways to get just that little bit more room to stretch out, if you only know where to look.
One of those can be found on the armrest of the aisle seats.
A lot of people prefer to sit in the aisle seats rather than the window, or the dreaded middle seat, because it enables them to stretch their legs out into the empty space next to them.
However, some of those people get infuriated because the aisle-side armrest can get in their way and ruin their comfort.

Most plane armrests will just lift up normally without the need for any buttons to be pressed, apart from the aisle-side armrests which often seem to be firmly held in place.
That's not exactly the case, as revealed by Tiktoker Rosie Doal (@arosieworld).
In a video, she showed that there's a button that can be found hidden in the hinge of the armrest.
Passengers simply need to find that button, which will then enable them to lift up the armrest and either make themselves more comfortable, or stand up into the aisle much more easily.

Although it's a very simple trick, plenty of people weren't aware of it and thanked Rosie for her video, including a flight attendant who said they wanted everyone to know about it.
One wrote: "You're telling me now after 10 years."
Another said: "We came back from Tenerife the other week and I tried everything… thanks Rosie."
A third added: "I’m a flight attendant and I try to show that to as many people as I can cause the struggle to get up is so real."
Rosie isn't the only person to show how to make economy class seats more comfortable.
TikTok user and wedding photographer Sophia Savage revealed another secret trick during a flight with her partner.
Sophia, who is known as sophiasavagephoto on TikTok, shared her hack on social media.
In a recent video, she wrote: "When your boyfriend doesn't know about the airplane head cushion hack."
She then reached behind her boyfriend, grabbed the headrest and bent it into a more comfortable sleeping position.
At the end of the video, her boyfriend smiled and rested his head in a much more pleasant position.
