Best Seats on American’s New A321
I just flew L.A. to Miami on one of AA’s brand-spanking-new A321 planes, which are so new that SeatGuru.com and SeatExpert.com don’t even have them listed yet. As I wrote in this post, it’s a beautiful plane but American put one (or three) too many rows in it, so even Main Cabin Extra feels really tight—especially when the passenger in front of you reclines (see above). If you plan on getting some work done, and so need the space, my tip is to either not fly on the A321 or, if you do, choose seats in row 8, 11 or 24. Or seats 12F, 25A or 25F, since none of these have a seat in front of them. Unfortunately, if you don’t have elite status (Platinum or higher) they’ll cost you an extra $78 to $90.
