Extra legroom seat europe

Extra legroom seat on European flights

Enjoy more legroom during your flight with our Extra legroom seats that are located next to the emergency exits. These ergonomically designed seats all have the same features as the standard Economy Class seats but on average more legroom. So it’s an ideal seat for all passengers who want to stretch their legs and move around a bit more. With more recline, this seat is comfortable for passengers that want a bit extra or need to arrive well-rested for a business meeting. On some aircraft, there is no recline for these seats, due to the double emergency exit doors behind the seats. Please note that you’ll have to store your baggage in the overhead bins instead of under the seat in front of you during take-off and landing.


  • On average 15 cm (5,9 inch) more legroom than regular Economy
  • Up to 9 cm (3.5 inch) recline (some aircraft have no recline)
  • Ergonomically designed
  • Seats next to the emergency exit
  • Please read the seating conditions for this seat
