Virgin Atlantic Extralegroom NOT exit Row on 747

Hi, has anyone flown in the extra leg room seats rather then the row in front which is the exit row seats? Is it worth the money and how much extra do you really get?

thanks

extra leg room normal width seat (not narrow exit seats) have 34'' of leg room v 31'' or less in the rest of the cabin

34''means roughly a 5'10'' person can cross their legs with the seat in-front not reclined.

its usually worth paying for yes imho

virgin have different layouts in their 747's so take note
