United purchased Pan Am’s Pacific Division in 1985 and along with it came a fleet of 11 Boeing 747 aircraft (among others). I previously posted United’s Royal Pacific 747 seat map with a higher concentration of premium seats, and here now is the standard Royal Pacific configuration for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps.
An interesting thing to note is that it appears first class and business class (downstairs) shared just two lavatories. And unlike United’s 747s today, there were more 2-seaters in coach.
I have an amenity kit from that time period, which I’ll eventually detail in a post as a nostalgic look-back, not necessarily part of my Amenity Kit Review series.
You’d find me in 2F in first, 6A in business and likely 18H in coach. Where would you sit?
