Row 11 or 2 - a320

Hi all, flying B6 from JFK-BUR next month, right now in EMS in row 11 aisle. Would row 2 be better? Also, any way of knowing if you're getting a reconfigured plane with the new interiors?

I was in row 11 on a A320 today. I can't talk about row 2 but I can tell you that Row 10 had more legroom than row 11. Row 10 had limited or no incline. If I had known this I would of taken row 10 for my 3 hour flight.

Which is better depends on circumstances and what you prefer.
Row 2: Quicker off the plane, but will likely have more limited overhead space. Row 1 doesn't have any under-seat storage, so everything goes in the overhead, and I've found that the FA's often put their stuff in the first few rows of overhead as well. If you're Mosaic or don't have anything to put overhead, and don't care about EMS, this would likely be the better choice.
Row 11: Better if EMS seats and overhead space matter to you, but much slower off the plane.

Thanks so much. Am indeed Mosaic and will travel HBO so overhead space is important for sure. I'm not sure if I'll go row 10 or 11. It's a long enough flight that maybe the legroom is worth it over extra recline...

10C is the best seat on the A320.

How is 10D, across the aisle? I am traveling with my partner, we both like aisles so will sit directly across from each other. 10C and 10D are available.

Just as good. I just prefer that side from habit.

Also, remember C/D does not have the entertainment system under the seat so you do have slightly more room under the seat in front of you. I was in 11F last night on a 320 and 10F had a very slight recline even though that occupant tried to move it back further several times hard enough to spill my drink that was on the tray table.

I was in 2A on a 321 Core the flight before and I was bothered by the recline of 1A that I switched to exit row on the flight back, but I'm 6'8 so I'm in EMS almost any flight over an hour (not on JFK/BUF E190) and usually exit row YMMV.

Seatguru was showing all of row 11 as the best, but a little bit of digging and a few opinions here on FT seemed to strongly recommend row 10 instead. So went with 10C and D! Flight isn't until next month, though.
