For flying alone I'd go with the D/F side. You get a full seat between you and your neighbour that way. On the A/C side it's a bit closer.

As for the seats themselves I'll try and opt for row 2. I don't like row 1 because of the lack of underseat storage for obvious reasons.

There's not a whole lot in it to be quite honest.

Not much in it - they are the 2 outer seats with the middle free in the first few rows of the cabin. Older planes have less space on the A/C side, planes with newer seatng are the same both sides.

319 and 320 are exactly the same at the front.

I usually go for row 1 for the extra laptop opening space.

Thanks, but would A/C seats not be wider?

My preference has always been for 2A/C, but that simply out of habit.

As stated above, D/F maybe preferred by those traveling on their own. If it wasn't pointed out, I don't think you would have notice on your first CE flight.

The seats are exactly the same size, the only difference is that on DF the seat in between is a full size seat which is not used in Club Europe, while on A/C the space between A and C is only about half of a seat size.

I don't care which side but I like row 1 if available, at least there is nobody in front of you reclining their seat.

The space between rows is not that great.

From where to where are you flying?

I hope you're not on an ex-BMI plane. That club europe is the one to avoid as the legroom is appaulling.
