One class version of Airbus A321-100 is the most common in Alitalia.

This version may transport 200 passengers. The seats are divided into three sections.

First section includes 8 rows of seats that have 3-3 configuration.

The seats of the 1st row have such disadvantages as: proximity of the lavatory and galley, limited recline, reduced width and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing.

Because of the exit row located behind the seats of the 8th row may be less reclining.

Behind the exit row the second section of seats is located. There are 13 rows of seats here.

The seats of the 9th row as well as the seat 10D are considered the best seats on the airplane as they offer extra legroom. At the same time these seats are narrower than standard and have no floor storage during take-off and landing.

For passengers traveling with a companion will be ideal the seats 23BC and 23DE. However these seats may have limited recline.

The third section of the seats are located behind another exit row.

Passengers of the seats of the 24th row and of the seat 25D will feel comfortable thanks to the extra space for their legs. Among disadvantages of these seats: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing and as the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable, the width of these seats is reduced a little.

Proximity of the lavatories may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 25C and 35D.

Limited storage space in overhead bins, close location to the lavatories and limited recline make the seats of the last 36th row bad seats.

The second version of Airbus A321 operated by Alitalia includes 28 seats of business class and 158 seats of economy class.

Business class seats are located in 7 rows per 4 seats in each. The middle seats are not sold providing more privacy to passengers of business class.

Because of the bulkhead position the seats of the 1st row have less legroom. As the tray tables are built-in the armrests the width of these seats is slightly reduced. The noise from the galley and lavatories is another disadvantage of these seats. There is no floor storage for these seats during take-off and landing.

Economy class is divided from the seats of business class with a curtain that may be bothersome for passengers of the seats of the 8th row. Also these seats have limited recline because of the exit row located behind.

The seats of the 9th row as well as the seat 10D are good seats as they have extra legroom. However, these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing and are narrower than standard.

For passengers traveling with a partner will be perfect the seats of the seats of the 23rd row. But these seats are less reclining than standard.

Extra space for passengers’ legs makes the seats of the 24th row and the seat 25D good seats. Among disadvantages: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing and reduced width of the seats.

The only disadvantage of the seats 35C and 35D is proximity of the lavatories.

The seats of the last 36th row are considered bad seats because of the close location of the lavatories, limited recline of the seats and reduced storage in overhead bins.
