While 10A/F on the map below probably offered…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: American Airlines DC-10 ‘Standard’ from 1987

Last month I published a seat map of American’s “Standard” DC-10 from 1985 sporting a spacious coach cabin. I noted in that post that a mere two years later in 1987, this same aircraft was reconfigured with 22 additional seats in the rear cabin and promised to share the higher-density layout. Here, then, is American’s…

Appearing below is a Boeing 737-200 seen flying the skies in 1987. All of my seat maps from that year show USAir operating nothing but single-class aircraft –…

I’m putting a little narrow-body love out there for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps with a Northwest Airlines DC-9-10. The configuration appearing below was flying the skies in 1987 and seated eight passengers in first class with 70 in coach. Based on the Planespotters.net website, it appears Northwest also had a layout with…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: United Airlines Boeing 767-200 MT

It’s time for another Vintage Airline Seat Map and I’ve selected one of two United Airlines Boeing 767-200 configurations seen flying the skies in 1998. The version appearing below operated domestically (I believe exclusively) as it lacked flight attendant crew rest seats. The other layout I’ll post in a future installment and it had two…
