The seats of the 12-17th rows are considered preferred seats. These seats may be reserved by elite members free of charge. Other passengers will have to pay extra fee to choose these seats.

The seats of the 12th row are considered the best seats as these seats have extra legroom. Passengers of these seats are first to be served and disembark.

The seats of the 16th row are located behind the exit row. That is why passengers of these seats will take advantage of extra legroom. However, these seats are narrower than standard as the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable and have no floor storage during take-off and landing.

Passenger of the seat 17D will feel comfortable as there is no seat in front. At the same time there is no floor storage during take-off and landing.

Close location of the lavatory may represent problem for passengers of the seats 27C, 27DEF and 28AB. The seats 27DEF are not reclining but the seats 28AB may have limited recline.

The last 12 rows of Economy class are located behind another exit row. All the seats here have 3-3 configuration.

The seats of the 29th row are designated by Air Canada as preferred seats that may be reserved for additional fee. Elite level members may reserve these seats with no additional charge. These seats are considered best seats due to extra legroom.

Passengers tend to gather in the tail of the airplane in order to visit lavatories and it may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 39C and 39D and of the seats of 40th row. In addition the seats of the 40th row may have limited recline.

This version of Airbus A321 offers 185 seats of two classes: business and economy.

Business class consists of 16 recliner seats that are located in 4 rows per 4 in each.

Due to position of the bulkhead the legroom of the seats of the 1st row is restricted a little. Close location of the galley and lavatory may cause discomfort as well.

As the tray tables are built-in the armrests the width of these seats is reduced a little. Also these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing.

Because of the exit row located behind the seats of the 15th row are less reclining than standard.

Behind the exit row the second section of economy class seats is located. This section contains 13 rows of seats. The seats of the rows 16-17 are designated as preferred seats to book which an extra charge must be paid. These 2 rows offer 11 seats.

Thanks to the exit row located in front the seats of the 16th row have extra legroom. However, these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing. Protrusion of the exit doors inside may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 16A and 16F.

Passengers of the seat 17D will take advantage of additional space for their legs. This seat is considered good seat but as the tray table and video displays are in the armrests the width is slightly reduced.

Congregation of passengers may cause inconvenience to passengers of the seats 27C, 27DEF and 28AB because lavatories are located here.

As there is no seat behind the seat 27C is often bumped by other passengers and crew members passing by.

The seats 28AB are less reclining than standard due to exit row located behind.

Elite level members of Air Canada may reserve these seats free of charge. Passengers of these seats will feel comfortable thanks to additional space for their legs. Among disadvantages: reduced width of the seats and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing. Protrusion of the exit doors inside slightly reduce the extra legroom of the seats 29A and 29F.

The noise from the galley and lavatories will cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 39C, 39D and the seats of the 40th row. Limited recline makes the seats of the last 40th row bad seats.
