What I can tell you is oldfashioned, but both airlines still have hardcopy timetables with seatmaps inside. You can find them at any AF
ticketoffice and check-in.
According to my AZ
timetable, on their A321 you find a cabin with convertible C/Y configuration. The C cabin size is according to the bookings in each class, that goes from 0 up to 71 seats in a 5 abreast layout. Row 2 (there's now row 1) has only 2 seats and row 10 has only 4, because there are two emergency exits with a jump seat on the position of seat 10D. This is also the row with the biggest legroom. Because rows 2 to 18 could be used as C class, the seat pitch is bigger than in the remaining rows 19 to 35.
If you are traveling in Y, you should ask for a seat in row 18 and lower.
Interestingly, AZ MD
80 have a fixed 4 abreast C cabin from row 1 to 18. If bookings require a smaller cabin than those 70 seats (row 1 only has 2 seats), than you could be seated in on of those 4 abreast seats as a Y class passenger.
As far as I can tell you about AF
, it is much more complicated, since their A320 family serves different markets with different layouts. As an example, the A320 has 142 seats for the African-/Middle East Market, 152 seats for medium haul flights, 172 seats for a product called Métropole and another called La Navette...
