Vintage Airline Seat Map: American Airlines Boeing 727-200 From 1985

Back in November I posted the pre-deregulation version of American’s 727-200 with 16 seats in first class and 111 in coach. Those were the days of generous legroom in coach, almost being equivalent to that of first class. Here, now, is how American’s -200s changed in the post-deregulation era for this installment of Vintage Airline…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: American Airlines Boeing 727-200 From 1977

I previously posted American’s 727-100 from 1977 and here now is the stretched -200 series for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. American offered 16 seats in first class and 111 in coach on this pre-deregulation 727-200. Seat pitch in first was probably around 38-inches and economy likely had a very generous 36-inch pitch.…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Continental Airlines Boeing 727-200

It’s time for a little narrowbody love in this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. Shown below is a Continental Airlines Boeing 727-200 seen flying the skies in 1987. Formerly a People Express bird, this all-coach, high-density aircraft was likely flying the shuttle routes in the Northeast corridor. Seat pitch must have been punitive as…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: United Airlines Boeing 727-200 (1979)

United Airlines had a few variations of the Boeing 727-200 flying the skies in 1979 and I’ve selected the -222A configuration for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. Seating a total of 132 passengers, there were 14 seats in first class with 38” pitch and 118 in coach at 34” pitch (ah… those were…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Eastern Airlines Boeing 727-200 (177 seats)

It’s time again to feature a narrowbody aircraft for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps and I’ve selected one of Eastern Airlines’ Boeing 727-200s seen flying the skies in the late 1980s. The carrier had four different configurations of the -200 and this one was their highest density bird in 1987 seating 177 passengers…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Piedmont Airlines Boeing 727-200

Piedmont Airlines began operations in 1948 from its home base of Winston-Salem, North Carolina and eventually grew into a national carrier with a route network stretching to the west coast (and later to London’s Gatwick Airport). The east coast was still its strength with the largest frequencies operating from hubs in Charlotte, Baltimore and Dayton.…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Delta Air Lines Boeing 727-200

I’ve selected a Delta Air Lines Boeing 727-200 for this edition of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. The carrier operated another version, with the only basic difference being that the rear galley was on the right starboard side of the aircraft. I liked the 727, as did the pilots. Takeoff thrust is eerily quiet when sitting…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Braniff 727-200

For this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps, I selected a single-class Braniff Boeing 727-200. Seating 160 people, I thought it was interesting Braniff elected to only have one galley area for a relatively high density aircraft. On most other airlines operating the dash-200s, you’d find a second one near the rear exit doors. Braniff…
