If you mean the dashed lines on the ground, I would guess they have to do with where you are allowed to park ground equipment. Say you are servicing this aircraft. You may not park equipment beyond the line to avoid interfering with the next plane.
Just a guess though.

Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 3): That would be the red bordered by White lines.Im referring to the Chequered Black/White line Vertically on RH top corner.
The checkered line appears to be a variant of the "zipper" road marking, identifying where a service vehicle pathway crosses a taxiway. Notice the two-lane road for vehicles to the right of it, and that the checkerboard starts beyond the aircraft envelope at what seems to be a taxiway.
Sorry, no answer for you regarding the A321. Do a search as I think I remember that subject being brought up not too long ago...

All our fleet of A319/320/321 have refuel adaptors on both wings. The refuel control panel is in the right wing body fairing.
Interestingly our fleet of B767-300 not only have refuel adaptors in each wing, but a full refuel panel as well!. If both are open the left wing one takes control, but you can couple up and control from either wing.
The standard is the Left wing panel, unlike the B757 which has it on the right!. We operate both B757 and B767 and the refuellers are always turning up on the wrong side for a B757.
Never seen this anywhere else. B777 and B747 and L1011 and I suppose most wide bodies have adaptors on each wing, but only one control panel. Right wing on L1011 and left wing on B747 and B777.

On the A320 series, I believe they can be delivered with adapters on both wings. The fuel panel is usually in the right wing to body fairing or alternatively at either adapter location depending on how airlines choose to order it.

What would be the logic of having it on the other [LH] side.Would less cramping during Servicing be one reason.

Quoting Troubleshooter (Reply 15): On the A320 series there is also an option for a refuelling panel in the cockpit. A blue light near the refuelling adapter tells the ground staff that the preselection was made from the cockpit.
also found on the ACJ family...makes it much easier for us fuelers, as we no longer have to concern ourselves with stopping short, rolling over, or getting yelled at for "screwing it all up"
