As with all airliners, the layout of the cabin is determined by the requirements of the purchasing

airline. Whether we are talking about an Airbus A319 interior, an Airbus A320 interior, an Airbus A321 interior or an Airbus A318 interior, the options are the same.  All variants have the same A320 specifications as relates to cabin width.  Airbus A320 boasts a cabin width 7 inches wider than its competitors. This allows for flexibility of choice with the options to accommodate 4, 5 or 6 seats abreast layouts. This also gives the opportunity for wider seats and/or wider aisles, making it popular with travellers.

The extra cabin width also enables larger overhead luggage bins which makes it popular with business travellers who would rather have carry-on luggage to enable speedier transitions through airports. To further enhance the speedy turn-around required by a short-haul workhorse, the A320 boasts larger, than its competitors, passenger and service doors.

Designing cabin interiors and having them released is a slow process due to the certification processes that must be passed through. Airbus is working with designers to further refine and modernise cabin layouts and one option it is currently looking at is a new pivot luggage bin.

    1. Hi and thanks for stopping by. This is an interesting question and may, of course, have many answers. Why? Well when an airline buys their new airliner, they have many options to decide on. One of those is the type of seats they choose. There are a number of suppliers available, even for the same aircraft. For example, the A320 seating can be supplied by companies such as; Collins Aerospace, Interiors, Expliseat SAS, Koito Industries Ltd and Recaro, to name but a few. Each, of course, will have slightly different products. If we have to put a ball park figure on it, you would be looking at around 74 to 82 pounds or 33.5 to 37.2 Kgs for an economy seat.
      I hope that helps.

  1. Given that there are different seats possible, what is the smallest size space under the seat in front of the passenger (for stowing personal item)? Thanks!

    1. Hi,
      There many different seating types installed on airliners, however the safest thing to do is to aim for 28CM (11”) tall by 43CM (17”) wide by 46-51CM (18-20”) long.
      Cheers Peter
