Spirit Airlines' Carry On Policy
CarryOn Free provides luggage specifically designed to board all Spirit flights 100% free of charge. The secret is behind our dimensional shape, each bag measures 16 x 14 x 12 inches large, which is the exact dimensions Spirit Airlines limits passengers to flying with for free. If you board a flight with any bag exceeding these dimensions then you are assessed a fee. Previous statements from Spirit's carry on policy claim that passengers are entitled to: "one personal item that must fit under the seat." To make things perfectly clear, a bag, that is 16 x 14 x 12 inches large will not store under the seat of every Spirit flight and here is why:
Spirit Airlines has recently introduced a new line of seating called the Brice Seating's new pre-reclined B3100 Featherweight design. This design provides approx. 12 inches of space under the seat in front of you leaving just enough room to store bags of our size and smaller. However, this Brice Seating has only been equipped on a percentage of Spirit's fleet. So it is quite possible that you may board a plane without this seating and your CarryOn Free bag will not stow away under the seat in front of you. But do not fear, this will not force you to pay for your bag, passengers must only adhere to the 16 x 14 x 12 inch dimensional rule.
