  This Secret Button on Your Airplane Seat Will Instantly Give You More Space Ever wish you could just press a button and your airplane seat would become instantly less confining? As a traveler, there’s a lot we don’t know about airplanes: why the windows are round, why the lights dim during landing and takeoff, and how do those tiny tires on the landing gear not pop when they hit the runway? And, while we’ve explained all those quirks before, there’s one little aspect of an airplane seat, we’ve yet to reveal: the secret button that will turn your aisle seat into a spacious oasis.

The Qantas flight is one of the longest nonstop routes in the world, and the man’s ability to stay put even prompted some researchers to check and see if his monitors were even working properly.
