    Some comments on seating.

    Space+ is retained [​IMG]

    Avoid seat 1A. Not only is there a slide protuding into legroom, and slightly narrower seat due to tray table in the armrest, but also the sole window is by the shoulder. No bulkhead so more legroom than any other seat.

    No view for seats 1ABC. The bulkhead provides lots of space for seats 2DEF.

    Right hand side (DEF seats) at the front have 1" more legroom than left hand side.

    Seats are already getting dirty, just 5 days after entry into service.
    The sole a/c (reg ZK-OAB with All Blacks livery (black exterior) and black seats seem like they may get hot if aircraft is sitting on the ground for long on a hot day.
    Feels more spacious than 737. The contrast to the new 77W for longhaul which I tried out just a few days ago is very stark.

    At AKL disembarkation was both through airbridge and rear stairs.

    Isn't the A320 a bit wider that the 737? Is this the source of the increased spaciousness?

    AFAIK the A320 cabin interior width is about 6" wider than 737.
     
  7. How many domestic A320s are in service at the moment?

    Certainly feels more roomy than the 737's and the mobile internet (and phone/txt) is quite cool
