Personal item in first row

Explorer C

Are the passengers sitting in the first row allowed a personal item? If so, where does it go?  I’m currently sitting in the 2nd row and the passenger in front of me put their personal item under their seat and now I don’t have any leg room.

The space under the seat in front of you is yours to use.


First row people don't have seats in front of them, they need to store their personal items in the overhead compartment.

Also, for those sitting in the bulkhead (first) row, be aware that your item(s) may need to be placed in the overhead compartment behind you, as the ones above your row contain safety equipment and often FA's baggage.
