Goodbye cramped flights, hello sweet, sweet elbow room.

According to TIME Magazine, there's a 'secret button' on airplanes which will instantly give you more room. The bad news is, it's only located in the aisle seats so the window seat-lovers will just have to make do with all the views and a nice place to rest your head.

According to the publication, the magical button is located on the underside of the outer most armrest of the aisle seat. To find it, "slide your hand under the armrest, close to the hinge and feel for the button. Press it and you are now free to move that armrest up so it’s flush with the back of your seat, giving you the freedom you deserve."

Who knew? Defo booking the aisle seat next time.
