AZ And AF Seat Maps?

Sun Jan 29, 2006 4:13 am

Where can I find AZ seat maps and AF seat maps for intra Europe flights. I will be on a few inter-Europe flights soon and I want to know where I can find the A32X seat maps.
If no maps available, please let me know the best AZ A321 seat. Thanks!

What I can tell you is oldfashioned, but both airlines still have hardcopy timetables with seatmaps inside. You can find them at any AF and AZ 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...
My favourite planes flown: Lockheed 188 Electra, Tridents, VC-10, B-707, L-1011, A330, E90 + Concorde

WOW! Thanks for the info . . . I didn't realize that there is so much moving around!!! No wonder why they don't post seat maps on their web-sites. I guess it's up to the day-of-departure for my seats!
