  • The Definitive Thread for VN's A321

    Filed under: You never know when you'll need this info.

    Onboard features
    • No power
    • No wifi
    • No in-seat entertainment; only small LCD screens throughout the cabin


    Business Class

    Seat Features:
    • Standard recliner-style seats with adjustable headrests
    • Manual adjustments


    Row 1 has restricted legroom, due to the bulkhead wall (no cutouts).

    Row 4 may have noise coming in from the Y cabin, which is separated by a curtain and not a wall. However, it may not be too much of a problem if the flight isn't full, because VN agents are annoyingly resistant to assigning seats forward of the 2nd doors, all the way to outright lying that there are already people in those seats.

    Economy Class

    Features:
    • No adjustable headrests
    • On regional flights, pillows and blankets are placed on every seat


    Rows 10-14 (no Row 13) are always blocked from being assigned if the flight is not full. You may have to ask several times to get these seats, and in all likelihood they'll give you something in Row 14. This will continue through the boarding process, as those who seat themselves will be asked to take their original assigned seats. Once boarding is complete, the flight attendants tend to be more flexible should you want to move to one of these seats, but they also seem to be coveted by many, so don't wait too long before asking.

    Rows 16-27 (between the 2nd and 3rd set of doors) have 1-2 inches more pitch, compared to other rows.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Row 10 is a bulkhead seat with a curtain behind F, so there is underseat storage. The tray tables are in the armrests, so they are fixed and the seat is narrower.

    Row 11 less pitch.

    There is no Row 13.

    Row 14 does not recline due to the emergency exit behind, and also has no windows.

    Row 15 is an emergency exit row, so there's extra legroom. The tray tables are in the armrests, so they are fixed and the seat width is narrower. Seat 15D is missing and replaced with a crew jumpseat. Also note that, due to VN policy, no items can be stored underneath the seat in front of you, and the overhead bins over this row are blocked.

    Seat 16D has jumpseat in front, creating a wall, so while you can't stretch out your legs, you can cross them easily. The tray table is in the armrest, so it is fixed and the seat width is narrower.

    Row 20 is missing a window.

    Row 21 is missing a window.

    Row 27 has no recline, due to the emergency exit doors behind.

    Row 28 is an emergency exit row, so there's extra legroom. The tray tables are in the armrests, so they are fixed and the seat width is narrower. Seat 28D is missing and replaced with a crew jumpseat. Also note that, due to VN policy, no items can be stored underneath the seat in front of you, and the overhead bins over this row are blocked.

    Seat 29D has jumpseat in front, creating a wall, so while you can't stretch out your legs, you can cross them easily. The tray table is in the armrest, so it is fixed and the seat width is narrower.

    Seats 38ABC have no recline due to the lavatory walls behind. There is also a missing window.

    Row 39 only has the E and F seats (no D). This creates a bit more space in the aisle, however passengers tend to use this space as a passing lane. These seats are directly across and in front of the 3 lavs in Y, meaning unpleasant heavy foot traffic and odor. There is no recline due to the lav, and there is a missing window.
