a320 with only 3 rows in first?

on DL 1142 MEM - SLC was initially on EF with 4 rows on F, now only with 3 rows in F. Still listed as a320 on DL, but ANN on EF.

Anybody else had a320 with 3 rows of F?

number 6/28 for 2 seats open, so look like will miss first upgrade in a while.

It sounds like DL substituted a 319. That's an easy substitution since the flight deck certifications allow crew to interchange the two.

Agreed, I guess would not be the first time the DL website incorrect.

Does ANN on EF mean a319? Only shows it when you look at seat map.

Delta is removing 4 First Class seats on all of the A320's.... This is to add the economy comfort section.

Yep - ran into this the other day - GA's must often walk onto the plane to see what they have before they clear 1st upgrades!

IIRC all 320's are now 'configured' in the system as 12F so there isn't a swap that boots 4 pax out of F

Seems like more and more DL ACs have 3 x 4 = 12 First Class seats.

The A319s are staying with 12F. A320s are being reduced from 16F to 12F. That was the only change in F cabin size announced with the rollout of domestic Economy Comfort.

Right, in order to match DL's latest "keep climbing" campaign, which to most people seem more like "keep descending."

This is going to end up being like last year when DL added a row of F to the 763s. Threads about A320s with 3 rows of F every week....

Well the 319's WERE 16 F until they did the same thing to them for EC. If you remember when DL announced this they first said there would be no reduction in FC seats, then they said 319 only, and now, of course, the 320 is being reduced (as several of us here already knew).
