Cabin layout & comfort
The A321 typically accommodates 185 passengers in a two-class configuration (16 in business class and 169 in economy) – while offering unbeatable economics in high-density seating (with up to 220 passengers) for charter and low-cost operators. From 2018, an optimised use of cabin space, increased exit limits and a new cabin door configuration will enable Airbus to raise capacity for the A321neo (new engine option) to 206 in a two-class configuration and to 240 passengers in high-density.
Airlines profit from the unique operational versatility of Airbus’ single-aisle aircraft – with the option to provide wider seats and enhanced comfort; a markedly wider aisle for faster boarding and easier cabin movement; and even a hybrid layout.
As with other members of the A320 Family, a new interior for the A321 creates a modern, fresh environment while also providing a significant increase in overhead stowage, a noticeable reduction in noise, along with options for ambience lighting. Additionally, it weighs less than the previous-generation interiors.
