NewZNew (Chandigarh) : SpiceJet, the second largest low fare airline in India, today announced an exciting offer for customers to experience its SpiceMAX product, as well as sample for free its all-new menu across its entire domestic and international network.
The first 5 rows of SpiceJet’s Boeing aircraft, and the front row on the Bombardier Q400 aircraft, are especially configured to offer the unique extra-legroom SpiceMAX seats. Customers opting for SpiceMAX not only get to enjoy significantly more space with at least 6 inches more leg room compared to standard economy class seats, they also get to enjoy express priority check-in at dedicated SpiceMAX counters at major airports.
Under this limited time offer, customers choosing SpiceMAX will also get to enjoy a complimentary meal with beverage from SpiceJet’s all-new menu, as well as priority baggage handling. This offer is valid for the period April 3 to April 30, 2015.
Ms Shilpa Bhatia, Sr Vice President and Head of Sales, SpiceJet Ltd., said, “SpiceMAX has proven to be a very popular product among customers who value express handling at the airport, and who prefer extra legroom and personal space in the aircraft to work or relax. While such customers are not always willing to pay the huge premium for Business Class, they are often comfortable paying a modest add-on fee for greater comfort and convenience in economy class. And now with this offer, customers can for a limited time also get a complimentary meal and beverage from our all-new menu, as well as receive priority baggage handling.”
SpiceMAX is available for a modest fee of Rs 500 to Rs 1000 per sector (depending on aircraft and flight length), and can be purchased by selecting a SpiceMAX seat on the seat map at the time of booking, at any time after booking using the “Manage My Booking” option, and at check-in (based on availability).

For those with a taste for Continental cuisine, the airline offers Grilled Chicken Breast with Mushroom Sauce and many other delectable meals.
