A321 two-seat exit rows

Seatguru describes the AA A321 seats 9DE as possibly having limited recline, but is silent about 22DE. I don't see why there would be any difference. Does anyone know?

Did you look in the 321 master thread? Tons of seating reports.

I am a big fan of 22E indeed. I personally don't recall being "bother" about the recline even if it's limited, If 22E isn't available, 22B is my next go-to seat. Both help you avoid protecting your foot space when people queue for the toilet when seated in 22C/D.

My other rule is to avoid 22B/C if 22D/E are available anyway. There's just something about being seated near the FA that makes 22 B/C less desirable unless necessary. My preference is: 22E->22D->22B->22C for reasons given.

There are two versions of the non-T 321. The version you’ve identified has row 9 in front of the emergency exit, and row 22 behind the emergency exit. In that case, I would think row 22 wouldn’t have the same recline limitations as the exit is in front of the seat. Most of the 321s I fly on have the other non-T configuration with emergency exits in front of rows 11 and 24. I’ve been on those many times, and have never noticed recline limitations in either set of emergency row seats.
