I have never been on an airplane that had footrests at all. I guess
you are talking about that metal bar that is usually found underneath
your seat? I always thought this is there to stop the carry-on
lugguage of the person behind you from moving around the airplane.
I.e. this "bar" actually curves around at the sides of the seat,
towards the back, to form a cage that holds your carry-on items
in place.
