I think A319 aircraft got a recent interior refurbish, correct?

Anyway, flew on N822UA today, and was impressed.

All of the 319's have the 'cradle-type' seats up front which are so much better IMO than the old FC seats still on some of the 737s. I think there are one or two 319s that have also been upgraded to NEXT. Do your have video screens? If so, NEXT. If not then just the updated 319 interior.

Yes, video screen at every seat. Got lucked out with free E+ on a basic economy ticket. Had a clear view of F seats and the larger screen from my aisle seat in row 7.

As of today 20x A319s have NEXT with another 2 or 3 in mod. N822UA is indeed fully NEXTified.

In addition, 2 weeks ago I flew a 737-900ER (N37474) with the NEXT interior. Something I found interesting when I got on the plane was that the first class cabin seats did not include the new privacy wings. Seats definitely looked bigger and had more cushion (A LOT OF CUSHION) to it but no privacy wings and small divider in between arm rest. I'm not sure about wireless charging, but figured i'd say something because it was interesting. The shape of the seat reminded me a bit of the first class seat on the E175 just with a bit more cushion and IFE seatback entertainment. Would anyone know why this is? Supply chain shortage?

Yes! They look exactly like the ones in reddit. Would you happen to know why that is out of curiosity?
