Here’s United’s original international configuration of their Boeing 767-300 fleet for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps.
Seating a total of 206 passengers, first class offered 10 seats in the 2-1-2 configuration, business class (then called Connoisseur Class) was in the typical 2-2-2 layout with 38 seats and coach seated 158 passengers in the 2-3-2 format.
Rows 13 and 14 were the crew rest seats on international flights, but were often available for revenue passengers when this aircraft flew domestic routes. The first class seats did recline to 180 degrees, as I recall, and seat pitch in business class was actually pretty tight by today’s standards (about 42”).
I worked for United in 1998 and loved non-revving on this bird. My favorite seats were 2A/F and 6A/F. Truth be told, I was fortunate to have always scored a first or business seat back then. I’d go for 16A/G in economy, of course, if I had to pick. Keep in mind this was pre-Economy Plus.
Where would you sit?
