Vintage Airline Seat Map: Continental Airlines DC-10-30 (Domestic-South Pacific)

I’ve got DC-10s on my mind this week having posted a video on Tuesday showing a “floater” landing by a United DC-10 at LAX years ago. And I’m jealous of a fellow #avgeek who’s flying a KLM MD-11 on Sunday. So… here’s a Continental Airlines DC-10-30 for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. I…

Video: United Airlines DC-10-30 Landing at LAX… Barely

Frequent Traveler University was fantastic, but I caught a horrible cold and my post-writing juices have stalled. So… while I wallow in my own pity and recover, check out this floater of a DC-10 landing at LAX. I’ve never seen an aircraft touch down that far along runway 25L. P.S. I’ll reply to the many…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Delta Air Lines DC-10

When Delta Air Lines acquired Western Airlines in 1987, they integrated Western’s DC-10-10 fleet into their operation. The seat map below reflects a -30 configuration, and unless I’m wrong, Delta never had -30s so I assume this is a typographical error (this map was published in July 1987). Potential error aside, I’m a DC-10 aficionado…

It’s time for another Vintage Airline Seat Map and I’ve selected an unusual one this week. World Airways – I know… they mislabeled it World Airlines – primarily flew (and currently flies) members of the military to war zones the world over along with other contracted business. If Wikipedia is correct, they currently operate a…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: American Airlines International DC-10-30 LuxuryLiner

The DC-10 is my second favorite aircraft after the 747 and I flew on a slew of them in the 1980s and 1990s. Unfortunately, I never did fly on the version appearing below, an American Airlines international DC-10-30 LuxuryLiner from 1985 – this week’s installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. DC-10 engines had such a…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Continental Airlines DC-10-30 (South Pacific)

I previously posted a Continental Airlines “Pub Version” of the Douglas DC-10-10 from the 1980s, and the one appearing below was their long-haul DC-10-30 from the same time period. It’s reported in the Continental Wiki (sourced from a book written by a former Continental manager) that President Jimmy Carter approved Continental to begin flying from…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Eastern Airlines DC-10-30

I’ve selected an Eastern Airlines DC-10 for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. The series 30 model was a longer range version of the then popular Douglas Aircraft Company tri-jet. Instantly distinguished from the dash-10 series by the additional center main twin-wheel landing gear, Eastern initially operated this airplane on the Miami to London…
