In December 2017 I wrote a post about the secret button on airplane seats.
The secret button allows you to raise the aisle seat’s armrest which can help your flight experience for a couple of reasons. It can give you more space to stretch your legs and also makes it easier for you to get up from your seat after the plane has landed.
Then a few months back I found a not-so secret button on United Airlines airplane seats during a flight from Saint Louis to Chicago.
We’re now in the final day of our month-long trip around South Asia. During this trip we flew on 12 flights so far.
During our most recent flight with Vistara from Goa to Mumbai, I was really surprised and impressed by the secret button on the airplane seats!Look at the ball close to the red arrow in the photo above.
Rather than have to stick your finger into a dirty hole under the armrest, the Boeing 737-800 had little smooth balls to push to make raising it a piece of cake!
When I showed Lucas the trick he was amazed. Throughout the flight, he played with the armrest, lifting and lowering it. He thought it was so cool that the aisle armrest could move up and down.
I don’t know about you but on each flight, after sitting down, the first thing I usually do is check for the secret button on airplane seats.
If you haven’t tried this before, raise the armrest and see how much better your flying experience can be!
