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 14 seats up front and 64 in coach.
What’s interesting on this map is the notation that rows 3-7 offered the most legroom – almost an Economy Plus of sorts (or I should say Economy Comfort since Delta gobbled up Northwest).
In first class you’d find me in 2D and in coach I’d be in 4A or 5A.
Where would you sit?
