Very happy to see this thread started. The A321 fleet has become really confusing to follow. This is helpful.

I'll be glad when they all are 20F.

Same. I have a 321neo flight to PHX tomorrow and an A321L back to DFW Thurs night. It's been so long since I've been on a flight that I forgot the A321s only had 4 rows of F. Pretty wild when you think of the size of that plane.

i was alarmed by the pitch of the F class seats in the new Oasis config. While I haven’t seen any definitive measurements, the pitch is definitely less than the 37” you find in the equivalent 737 Oasis/Kodiak cabins. Creating the seat maps is normally a simple space planning exercise - fix the bulkheads at either end and distribute the seats accordingly, then cross check against photos, videos etc. What alarmed me is the 20F cabin spans only 9 windows front to back so I estimate the pitch is in the region of 35 to 36”. This is without question a significant densification.

Another A321OA observation is these aircraft appear to be based at CLT at the moment and given the current small number of refitted aircraft, the 20F seat map only shows up on AA.com at around 24 to 48 hours before departure.

Yikes, that's essentially adding another row to the space occupied by the 16F pmUS aircraft currently, and those didn't exactly have great space in F.

I'm short and it's never been about the legroom for me albeit I've sat in 29 inch pitch seat before and that was tight for me. I can't imagine what it would be like for something 6'5''. For me it's about "elbow room." The additional row of F had to come at the cost of something.

We flew one of these OA's out of CLT a few weeks ago. While the pitch is surprisingly noticeable, my wife and I were still able to get up and out of our seats without violently bumping the seats in front of us even with the aisle seat in front of me reclined. One pro we did notice was that the seats did feel more private. "But other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?"

Main Cabin Extra at 33" pitch - shocking and insulting. One doesn't have to go back many years to find 33" pitch as the standard for regular plain old coach.

How's that possible? Having spent many hours on those birds they had absolutely no room other than in row 1, the seats were so tight you could barely open your laptop; couldn't have been more than 36", and row 4 barely reclined at all. At least that won't be a problem now that the bulkhead's disappeared.

Regarding the Oasis and Neo F seat pitch, a more detailed but not entirely scientific check suggests the pitch is 935 mm (36.85 in). But dont quote me on that
