Spirit Airlines Reveals Larger Comfier Seats

Traveling with Spirit Airlines is about to get a bit more comfy next year. The airline has revealed larger seats for its new aircraft in January 2023.

The Vector Light and Vector Premium seats were unveiled at the APEX Expo in Long Beach, California last week. They have extra cushion and will be wider.

The redesigned interior will be installed on Spirit’s new aircraft deliveries starting in late January 2023. In total, 33 new A320 Family aircraft are planned for delivery throughout 2023.

“Our cabin refresh in 2019 was a significant enhancement in the Guest experience, and these new seats are another great step forward in increasing value for our Guests. We’re adding new features while, at the same time, continuing to provide More Go with our same ultra-low fares,” said Lania Rittenhouse, Vice President of Guest Experience, Brand, and Communications for Spirit Airlines.

Each seat will gain a half-inch of width. The new seat technology unlocks previously unused space with a design that fits closer to the wall of the aircraft, creating an opportunity to increase seat width. This also adds the extra room without removing space from the aisle to ensure fast boarding and deplaning. Spirit’s middle seats will continue to be an inch wider than aisle and window seats.

The new design adds more leg space as well. The curved seatback adds about two more inches of knee space compared to flatback seats on legacy airlines with the same pitch. These extra pockets of space are omitted in the standard industry “pitch” metric, which is focused on flatback seats, Spirit says.

Last but not least, these seats are also more comfortable. They have more cushion and newly added headrests.

  1. What madness is this? Haven’t they got the memo that seats are supposed to be perpetually less comfortable than the previous ones?
