There is a small portal on the door, but it is nearly worthless for sightseeing. Yes, plenty of legroom. All but NBA players would consider it unlimited. (Pic below is not one of an AA bird.)

Do Row 10 and 9F have full recline? My beloved 8A is gone, although fingers crossed someone gets upgraded (sadly, not me since it’s an award ticket) and we can move up.

A321 - Oasis/Kodiak favorite MCE seat

What's everyone's go to seat on the A321? 11F exit row with the jump seat in front (but no storage at your feet, in fact no nothing at your feet) 8C on the bulkhead aisle? 11D exit row on the aisle with a little more legroom than 11C across the aisle? Way back in row 24 exit seats?

Or is there one I'm missing?


(and yes, of course I mean MCE not PE)

24D - for access to the lav ... for others this would be a downside.

Can you be more specific?

There are multiple versions out there, the A321 Neo no longer has the row 11 as an exit row with no seat in front of 11F. Now row 17 is the exit.

8C and 8D are aisle bulkheads. Don't the bulkheads have limited leg room?

there is no real bulkhead between F and Y, cabins separated by flimsy partition and you can stretch your legs under last row of F or you can store your carry on in front of you. I think 8c and 8D might have narrower underseat storage.

thanks! Does that mean seat 9c has less under seat storage under 8c or 8ccis allowed under seat storage under the F seat.

is row 8 the consensus best Y seat?

you store it under F. Best or not depends what you prefer. I do like exit rows as well.

I just booked a ticket 2 months out and was able to select 8F. In that row only 8DE have been taken.

A321 NEO - Main Cabin Extra questions

I am flying the AA A321neo soon. Seats 18DEF and 19DEF are main cabin extra, but not seats 20DEF. I can't seem to find a seat map for this configuration. The "https://www.aerolopa.com/aa-airbus-a321nx" shows the NEO has main cabin extra for DEF for rows 18 to 21. Anyway, my question is are seats 18DEF and 19DEF good seats. Do they have equipment under front seats?

Aerolopa is correct. 17ABCDEF, 18/19 DEF are MCE in that mid section. 18/19ABC are standard. Why, you ask? If you look at the Aerolopa seat map back to the lav, you'll see why. Also, if you're ok with exit row, take 17. It has some additional legroom over the other MCE seats.

If rows 8-10 are available, they're no different than 18/19, but 8 does not have a hard bulkhead so you will be able to stow carryons under the First class seat ahead of you.

Thanks. Unfortunately, rows 8 to 10 are taken. I have kids with me, so row 17, exit row is out. Only 18/19DEF are open. I have row 20ACDF, with empty middle seats for now. I am thinking of getting 18DF and 19DF, hoping for an empty middle seat.
