A321 seat question

Hi
I noticed that there is a pair of duo seats on the A321s : 24 B/C and 24 D/E.
I know these seats donít recline but is there a window on this row?
Would you recommend these seats for a couple ?

Thanks

IIRC, there is a FA jumpseat along the wall, facing rear. But I am not 100% sure

It seems that there is no window and that it is the exit door instead...

Although I admit it is not that clear on the picture you quote, I don't recall that these seats are in front of the emergency exit door (it would not be the most suitable configuration for an evacuation!). There is indeed a F/A seat at the location of the missing F seat (so not on the A-B-C side of the cabin) but IIRC, it is a bit misaligned with the passengers seat and I am not sure it would block the view.

Regarding potential misaligned windows, it will be different between row 9 and row 24. For instance I know for sure that, for exit rows, 10A/F have windows while 25 A/F do not have. By having a look at an outside view of an A321, I would expect row 9 to miss a window while row 24 to have one...

Last but not least, I do not know it this is really true but I have heard several times F/A saying that these duo seats (at least on the D-E-F side of the cabin) are blocked unless the cabin is full, to allow better working conditions for F/A.
