With a view to enhance convenience for passengers, the country's second largest low fare airline Spicejet today announced introduction of 'SpiceMAX' that offer more leg room for little more money from August 15.

SpiceJet has reconfigured most of its Boeing 737 fleet such that the first five rows now have this extra legroom, along with the exit row seats that have more legroom, the airline said in a release here.
SpiceJet’s Boeing 737 fleet will have 30 SpiceMAX seats (first five rows). The Bombardier Q400 fleet will remain with 4 SpiceMAX seats (the first row).
"We have repeatedly heard from many of our customers, including our corporate customers, that while they are not always willing to pay the huge premium for Business Class, they would be happy to pay a little more for greater comfort and convenience in economy class so that they have more personal space, legroom, and greater freedom to work and relax during their frequent travels," Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer, SpiceJet Ltd said.
For a limited time, the SpiceMax product can be purchased at a promotional offer starting at Rs 500 per seat over and above the ticket price.
