It’s time for a little regional airline love in this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps.
Appearing below is the layout for an American Eagle Saab 340B (SF3) turboprop seen flying the skies in the early 1990s.
Unlike all other Eagle aircraft flying at the time with row numbering beginning at “1,” American Airlines began at “3” on the Saab 340B.
And while I understand wanting to maintain cabin integrity by always lettering the window and aisle seats uniquely, row 14 here was rather unusual. How many passengers did the unconventional format perplex?
You’d find me in 3A or 4A on this aircraft. Where would you sit?
