Want a TV Screen & More Legroom? Add Google Flights’ Legrooms Extension
As if you needed another reason to ditch other flight search engines and use only Google Flights…
Sometimes, it can feel like a guessing game when you walk on your plane. Will your seat have an entertainment screen or do you need to bring your own? Will you be on a cramped plane with 29 inches of legroom or a have a more spacious seat?
It’s time to eliminate the guesswork. If you’re using Google Chrome as your web browser, add the Legrooms Extension for Google Flights.
It’s a free and powerful tool, as it quickly displays a ton of extra information about your upcoming flight. Take a look at flights between Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) and New York City – or any flight, really – and here’s what you’ll see.
Much of this information is available directly through the airline when you book, but it’s not always easy to find. With the Legrooms extension, you get an immediate look at everything you’ll get on your flight.
Is there Wi-Fi on board?
Will you be able to charge your devices at your seat?
Will you have your own entertainment screen to watch TV and movies? Look for the screen icon. If, instead, it shows a smaller device with the broadcasting signal, your plane won’t have TVs, but allow in-flight streaming on your own device.
What kind of plane will you be on, anyway?
And most importantly: How much legroom will you actually have? These days, 31 inches or so is the norm, though that’s as low as 28 inches on budget airlines like Spirit.
There’s no better way to get a ton of information about the flights you may book. Use the Legrooms extension to help steer you toward the best choice.
Just keep one thing in mind: Airlines can change which type of plane operates your flight at a moments’ notice. So while Legrooms can help prepare you for what’s in store, it won’t always reflect what plane you actually board that day.
Add this extension to your browser today, and you’ll immediately have a ton of information about your flight at your fingertips.
