Acro is delighted to announce that Spirit Airlines is the launch customer for our new Series 6FB Economy Class seat.
Spirit Airlines is an American ultra-low cost carrier headquartered in Miramar, Florida and a leader in providing customizable travel options. Spirit’s fleet is one of the youngest and most fuel-efficient in the U.S. and the airline operates more than 600 daily flights to 76 destinations in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.
Ted Christie, Spirit’s President and CEO, unveiled the new Series 6FB seats during his “Invest in the Guest” keynote speech at the APEX Expo held in Los Angeles this week. The seat launch is part of the airline’s commitment to improve the passenger experience with a cabin redesign featuring new modern interiors and seating products. The new look cabins will enter service on Spirit’s linefit A320 aircraft in November 2019.
The Series 6FB seats will be upholstered in a soft touch matte-black synthetic leather with border stitching in Spirit’s signature yellow, providing a sleek and modern aesthetic. Seat features include an upper literature pocket and a sliding single leaf table with cup recess. Passenger comfort is improved with enhanced seat ergonomics, thicker cushioning and lumbar support and a seatback pre-reclined to 24 degrees. In addition, the middle seat will be an inch wider, and the exit row will gain over and inch of pre-recline.
