Spirit Airlines reveals new, more spacious seats – Inflight

spirit airlines announces cabin enhancement

Spirit Airlines keeps redefining ultra-cheap travel by incorporating cutting-edge design elements into aeroplane seats. Today at the APEX EXPO 2022 event in Long Beach, California, HAECO Cabin Solutions’ new Vector LightTM seats and Vector PremiumTM product for the Big Front Seats® were formally unveiled. To further improve the guest experience, each Vector Light seat will be wider, come with an additional cushion, and have new, more comfortable features.

With significant seat modifications based on guest feedback, Spirit keeps expanding on that accomplishment. Starting in late January 2023, Spirit will begin receiving new aircraft with the interiors that have been redesign. Over the course of 2023, 33 new A320 Family aircraft will be delivered.

Spirit continues to support ground-breaking, curved seatback designs that create extra room at the knee level. Comparing this extra space to flatback seats on legacy airlines with the same pitch, there are roughly two more inches of knee room. The industry standard “pitch” metric, which emphasises flatback seats, ignores these additional storage compartments. There also  more personal space available to guests than what the “pitch” measurement suggests.

Additionally, the new seats have improved environmental benefits. The weight of each new Vector Light seat will decrease by almost 11 ounces per seat despite the addition of the new features, thanks to advancements in seat frame technology. In a large-scale operation, these seemingly insignificant adjustments have enormous effects, leading to significant decreases in fleetwide fuel consumption.
