Row 1 on Aegean A320 & A321

I prefer seats without a bulkhead / full height divider in front of them (because I have long legs). On planes with a dividers I'll choose row 2 or 3 in preference to row 1. LCCs tend not to have this divider in front of row 1, while most legacy carriers I've experienced have. Can someone remind me what setup Aegean use (on both their A320s & A321s)? I usually fly on the A321s, but my memory is awful - I *think* there are full length dividers in front on 1A/1C & 1D/1F. But it'd be great if someone who does remember can confirm!

Thanks,

John

I have flown one of the new A3 A321s (the winglet ones I think) that there was absolutely no divided and legroom was unlimited. Did not really like it for some reason

I flew the new and old A320s (sharklets and w/o) and all of them had that divider.

I do like it, unlimited legroom.

1A and 1C of A321 is unlimited. You can lay down!

Two data points (last week and today) for the A321s, as it seems A3 currently still use two different layouts for row 1:

SX-DGA: as in GBobon​'s picture in post 2 (no additional legroom)
SX-DGS: as in daiseiko's picture in post 7 (room for a private pool )

The GBobon layout is the rule, most planes have that. The daiseiko layout can be found on those planes that joined the fleet when OA merged with A3. Unfortunately for those who care about it, there's no way of knowing beforehand which one you get.

When flying towards Greece you can generally figure out the aircraft. Either the airport website will show the registration, or, you can see the incoming flight on flightradar24 or the like.

From my experience with A321s only SX-DGT that I flew has the unlimited legroom. That specific aircraft had very wonkey traytables in the armrest though - I would avoid row 1 for that reason. The other ones I flew had limited legspace due to the bulkhead. One strange exception is SX-DGP which does have a bulkhead, but the tables are extended from that bulkhead rather than the seat armrest.
