AA2681 PWM-CLT Seat Map Curiosity (A320 1C, D Blocked)

Just looking at some potential flights to LAS for next Sept/Oct. AA2681 A320 PWM-CLT no matter what dates I check it shows Seats 1C,D Blocked/Unavail. ??? just a glitch? can't be that many FAMs flying out of PWM. again just a Curiosity that caught my eye RT

Perhaps these are being blocked in advance for FA distancing? I don't recall if the jump seat up front on the A320 is a double jump seat, but if it is, this could be the reason so the FAs aren't sitting next to each other. (And if only one FA needs the jump seat, perhaps the blocked seats will be released at the gate? Just a theory...)

Similarly, you will see seats by door 2R on the A321 blocked next to the FA jump seat for FA distancing.

IDK, I sat in 1B on an A320 back in August, ORD-PHL; was switched over to that flight after an IRROPS situation. Entire F cabin was full. Similarly on an upcoming A319 flight from DFW to BDL the entire front cabin was up for grabs when I booked it.

Front row aisles have been blocked on a lot of my flights but then open up within 24 hours or so.

I've noticed that too. I think they attempt to keep those seats empty if the flight isn't otherwise full. However, if needed, the seats are opened up.
