Finnair Plus - A321 seating question
Sep 23, 11, 1:28 pm
Got an A321 flight coming up, and based on the seatmaps on Finnair's pages and at seatguru.com, picked 20A. This is not directly in front of the exit row, so should have normal recline, and with no "A" seat on the row behind should be able to use that recline freely without inconveniencing any others.
Seems like a prize seat, after the actual exit rows of course (which were already taken), but is this really so?
09 AF or 22 AF would be my choices in whY with ample legroom. Recline is so limited that there is no need to consider the passenger behind.

I would also choose legroom over recline anytime, unfortunately exit rows were already taken... Seatguru shows a FA jumpseat at 21F but none on the A side, suggesting that 20A would be the next best choice, with standard legroom but unrestricted recline (either by mechanical limit or out of consideration for the passenger behind). However I'm not sure how accurate the seat plan is.

I can confirm that the seatmap was correct at least for this particular A321. The recline limiters were set to standard depth, so not quite as good as you might imagine with the open space behind. Still an ok seat if you want to sleep without reclining into someone's lunch sandwich and cup of water, or having the passenger behind kicking your seat. 20F seemed pretty much exactly the same, normal recline even with the FA seat behind.
