Passenger Features of the Airbus A319

What is the Onboard Experience Like?

The A319 has the same optimised cabin cross-section as its A320 family members (including the A318, A320 and A321). The A320 family is the widest single-aisle fuselage aircraft on the market. This provides passengers with top-of-the-range comfort, with generous seat width.

What is the interior like?

A new cabin interior introduced by Airbus for the A320 Family ensures the A319 meets the needs of all passengers, setting a new standard for on-board comfort on single-aisle jetliners. The aircraft has a calm and quiet cabin, with a fresh and lighter new look, more space in the overhead compartments, a noticeable reduction in noise, and options for relaxing ambience lighting.

What are A319 seats like?

Some airlines choose extra-wide aisles over slightly wider seats, allowing for a faster turnaround time and more space for passengers to manoeuvre. The pitch and width of seats will depend on the airline. Easyjet's A319's have a 3-3 configuration and seats have a pitch of 29 inches and width of 18 inches in the Economy cabin. American Airline's A319's provide a seat pitch of 30 inches and a seat width of 17/3-18 inches in the Economy cabin.
