    The “mini-cabin” can be a bit more quiet than the main economy-class section, but it won’t necessarily be quieter if you are seated in row 13.
    As you can see from the American Airlines Boeing 767-200 seat map, row 13 is situated nearest the lavatories, which means the area will see a steady stream of passengers, particulary after meal time. Of course, there is also the potential for some less-than-pleasant odors … particularly after meal time.
    Still, it isn’t all bad. There are no seats behind these seats, so you can travel with no fear of having a child kick your seat back for 7.5 hours, and recline without guilt. And, while the legroom isn’t spectacular by any means, it’s no worse than any of the other economy-class seats – with the exception of the exit rows and bulkheads. And, unlike 10C-G and 20C-G, the armrests are moveable, so you could raise them up if you like and create sort of a mini-couch.
    So, as so often happens, it all comes down to your personal preferences and desires. If it’s peace and quiet you’re after, you’d be well advised to move forward a row or two. But for many, the downsides of this row are more than made up for by the lack of “back door neighbors,” as it were – as few things can ruin a nice 7.5-hour flight like a constant pounding on the back of your seat, grumbles about your use of recline, or a frequent riser whose assistance tool of choice when getting up is your head rest.
