Seat map Airbus A320-200 “British Airways”. Best seats in the plane
British Airways operates 3 versions of Airbus A320 airplanes.
First cabin version of the Airbus A320 (320) Domestic V1
This version of Airbus A320-200 is used by British Airways on short-haul flights inside the country. It is the most common version that may transport 168 passengers.
The seats of the 1st row have no floor storage during take-off and landing. Close location to the galley and lavatory may be bothersome.
B seats of the rows 2-12 are convertible from UK Domestic to Club Europe configuration where these sears are removed. These seats have gaps at the sides and in the middle making them very uncomfortable.
Passengers of the seats of the 10th row will not feel comfortable during the flight as these seats are not reclining.
The seats 11A and 11C as well as the seats 11DEF have limited recline but at the same time there is extra legroom.
The best seats on this airplane are considered the seats of the 12th row (except B seat, see as above). Passengers of these seats will take advantage of extra space for their legs.
Close location to the lavatories may be bothersome for passengers ofthe seats 27C and 27D.
The seats of the last 28th row are considered bad seats as they have slightly limited recline and are located close to the lavatories and galley.
Second cabin version of the Airbus A320 (320) Domestic V2
This airplane offers 171 economy class seats.
Passengers of the seats 1ABC and 2DEF will take advantage of extra legroom. Among disadvantages: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing and reduced width of the seats because the tray tables and video displays are built-in the armrests making them immovable.
The main disadvantage of the seats of the 11th row is limited recline.
As the seats of the 11th row are located between two exit rows, on he one hand they offer additional legroom but on the other hand are less reclining than standard. Also, these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing and are a little narrower than standard.
The best seats on the airplane are considered the seats of the 13th row. These seats are located in front of exit row providing extra legroom to passengers. However, these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing and have reduced width.
Passengers tend to congregate in the area of the seats 28C, 28D and of the seats of the last 29th row while waiting to use lavatories thus causing discomfort to passengers of these seats. Limited recline makes the seats of the 29th row bad seats.
Third cabin version of the Airbus A320 (320) European
Third version of Airbus A320-200 is used by British Airways mainly during short-haul European flights and may transport 144 passengers in two classes.
Club Europe section has 48 seats located in 12 rows. The seats of the Club Europe section are standard Euro Traveller seats but the seats B and E are blocked off. In this version blocked off seats are located in the first three rows. The seats of the 1st row. i.e. the seats 1A, 1C and 1D, 1F have been converted from Euro Traveller to Club Europe configuration. The tray tables in these seats are built-in the armrests making them immovable and reducing the width of these seats. Another disadvantage of these seats is their close location to the lavatory and galley.
This version of Airbus A320-200 has a movable divider between two sections making possible a lot of different configurations.
B seats of the rows from 4 to 9 have gaps in the middle and at the sides so passengers of these seats will not feel comfortable here.
All the seats of the 4th row (except 4B) are good seats as passengers pf these seats will be able to take advantage of extra legroom.
Due to the exit row located behind the seats of the 10th row these seats have no reclining position.
The 11th row is located between two exit rows that is why seats of these row have such advantage as extra space for passenger’s legs and at the same time these seats have limited or no recline.
The seat 12B has the same peculiarities as all B seats of the rows 4-9 (see above).
The seats of the 12th row (except seat B) are considered best seats as they have no disadvantages and passengers of these seats will feel comfortable thanks to the extra legroom.
The only disadvantage of the seats 27C and 27D is proximity to the lavatories.
Passengers of the 28th row may feel some discomfort during the flight as these seats may have slightly limited recline and due to close location of the galley and lavatories.
