There is a button on the seat that lets you lift the armrest.

You’ll likely find it under the armrest, near the hinge.

The armrest will move up once you have pressed it.

To give you more space, move the seat all the up until it is flush with yours.

As seats get smaller, it’s important to have as much space available as possible.

There are other hidden buttons on a plane.

TikToker Joselin Lora revealed that the bathroom cabinet buttons were placed there by a Delta cabin service worker.

She said that the button is under the mirror.

For those that fly Delta and especially for the women, there is a button underneath the mirror. If you push it, the door will open.

In the mirror, you’ll find all of your necessities like a padded pad.

In the cabinet, you will find sanitary pads and tissues. You can also refill hand lotions.

On other flights, she said that it’s a “pull-out box” on the wall.
