A319 bulkhead seats

Been a while since I was on a 319. Is it a hard bulkhead in front of row 5, or a curtain? Thinking about space for carry-ons. Thanks!

Curtain with lots of legroom, even if the pax in F reclines.

It's not a hard bulkhead....more like rigid fabric that moves with the recline of the last row in F. You will have tons of space in front of you for carry on in any of the 6 bulkhead seats - unlike the B737-800.

Curtain. Miles of leg room. Unsure if you get the stink eye if you put carry-on under the seat in front. If I recall the curtain is pulled back for take-off and landing.

And the coach bulkhead is now row 4, since they removed a row of seats in F.

You can definitely use the space under the last row in F for your storage.

Stripe,

You are correct, as usual. Our seats are row 5, which is the second row in coach. Removes any worries about under seat stowage. Thanks, all!

We used to call row 5 of a 319 "f minus" because you were near the front of the plane and had a first class seat in front of you.

The only issue with these seats is the location of the tray table.

EC seat with additional legroom, and normal armrest instead of the tray in the seat reducing width. Usually my choice in the (often) event that an upgrade doesn't clear on the nasty A320.

I happen to be sitting in 4A on a A319 right now with much more legroom than the pax in F. Underseat storage is easy. This A/C has no divider other than eye level (above the seatbacks).

F minus is a great description. (gogo working well.)
