Has anyone used a footrest pillow on Easyjet?

We’ll be flying back from Greece late at night with our DS (20 months) with Easyjet. Has anyone used one of these footrest pillows on Easyjet? They seem great but unsure to take them if they may not be allowed! www.<a class="break-all" href="//amazon.co.uk/Inflatable-Travel-Expanded-Airplane-Sleeping/dp/B074XHTX6Z/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=1st%20class%20kid&qid=1570524999&sr=8-1&tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21" rel="nofollow noindex" target="_blank">https://amazon.co.uk/Inflatable-Travel-Expanded-Airplane-Sleeping/dp/B074XHTX6Z/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=1st%20class%20kid&qid=1570524999&sr=8-1&tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21

Do not buy that item because they will not let you use that on the aircraft.

Have you booked a separate seat for your child? Travelling economy? I suppose it might create a sort of flat bed/ play area for your child if so. But if you're using it in your economy seat, surely you'll have to sit with your knees up unless you are very, very short. No way will you be able to sit with your legs stretched out. And it could be regarded as a safety hazard, preventing someone in your row of seats from escaping.

We have booked him a seat and we have a whole row to ourselves.

I don't think it matters that you have a row to yourselves - that doesn't look at all compliant with airline legislation, it could potentially impede exits or get stuck, and it'd be a hazard if (god forbid) something happened to the aircraft. I can't see it being allowed at all.

The reviews even say that British Airways didn't allow it...
