AA Oasis A321ceo Retrofit Config with Deactivated L2/R2

Thu Oct 10, 2019 9:02 am

First post in some time... I’m curious if anyone has flown on the elusive example of the A321ceo in the new oasis configuration.

https://thepointsguy.com/news/aa-projec ... s-service/

It appears that the retrofit regime for AA’s existing fleet of A321s has been paused due to the MAX crisis and the need to backfill capacity at that carrier.

I’m particularly curious as to how the A321ceo oasis configurators dealt with deactivating L2 and R2 doors to match the current AA A321neo configuration. Did they remove the existing door and replace it with a new “windowed” plug or simply deactivate the door and install a sidewall shroud with no window to cover the door up and install special narrow seats in that area? It’s unclear from the limited cabin pictures for the oasis A321ceo retrofits.

Personally, I believe the oasis retrofits are a significant upgrade for the ex-US fleet. Probably the only transcon subfleet in the US3 with no in-seat power or pax cabin closets for crew rollaboards.

No doors have been deactivated, the seats have just been rearranged. The Oasis has 6 less seats than the neo.
