Once added, you can see all the available flights on Google with the amount of legroom available for each one. What’s more? The extension also lets you see specific carry-on restrictions and flight amenities.

Now that you have more legroom, you’ll be able to sleep comfortably on that airplane in no time! As for the adorable crying babies on board, we’re sorry we don’t have a hack for that (hopefully, you packed your headphones).
