Vintage Airline Seat Map: Continental Airlines DC-10-30 (Domestic-South Pacific)

I’ve got DC-10s on my mind this week having posted a video on Tuesday showing a “floater” landing by a United DC-10 at LAX years ago. And I’m jealous of a fellow #avgeek who’s flying a KLM MD-11 on Sunday. So… here’s a Continental Airlines DC-10-30 for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. I…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: United Airlines Boeing 777-200

It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that Boeing 777s have been flying for more than 17 years. It still seems like a brand new airplane to me. And since I’m in an inaugural mood this week from my 787 ride, here’s United’s initial layout of their 777-200s for this installment…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: US Air BAC 1-11

Here’s a retro one from US Air for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. While this particular map is from 1987, US Air’s fleet of BAC 1-11s (British Aircraft Corporation “One-Elevens”) originally flew for Mohawk Airlines from 1965 to 1972. In 1972, Allegheny Airlines acquired Mohawk, and at the turn of deregulation in 1979,…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Pan Am Boeing 737-200

Here’s a unique one for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. Pictured below is a Pan Am Boeing 737-200 seating 116 passengers in an all coach configuration. Well… they designated rows 1-4 as Clipper Class, and those were likely sold as such when these birds were originally flying in Europe. According to several threads…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Delta Air Lines DC-10

When Delta Air Lines acquired Western Airlines in 1987, they integrated Western’s DC-10-10 fleet into their operation. The seat map below reflects a -30 configuration, and unless I’m wrong, Delta never had -30s so I assume this is a typographical error (this map was published in July 1987). Potential error aside, I’m a DC-10 aficionado…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Continental Airlines Boeing 727-200

It’s time for a little narrowbody love in this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. Shown below is a Continental Airlines Boeing 727-200 seen flying the skies in 1987. Formerly a People Express bird, this all-coach, high-density aircraft was likely flying the shuttle routes in the Northeast corridor. Seat pitch must have been punitive as…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: American Airlines Boeing 707-323B

I previously posted American’s 707-123 and 707-323C seat maps and now bring you their sibling, the 707-323B, for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. The only difference from the -323C is the addition of seats 22A and 22F. I’ve learned the ‘C’ variant was developed as a convertible aircraft capable of switching from a…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: United Airlines Boeing 727-200 (1979)

United Airlines had a few variations of the Boeing 727-200 flying the skies in 1979 and I’ve selected the -222A configuration for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. Seating a total of 132 passengers, there were 14 seats in first class with 38” pitch and 118 in coach at 34” pitch (ah… those were…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Delta Air Lines L-1011-250 TriStar

Delta Air Lines had quite a few variations of the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar flying the skies in the 1980s, including this one and this one, and I’ve selected another version for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps. Appearing below is Delta’s L-1011-250 seat map from 1987. It seated a total of 269 passengers across…

Vintage Airline Seat Map: Continental Airlines Boeing 737-100

It’s time for another Vintage Airline Seat Map and I’ve selected a “guppy” seen flying the skies in 1987. Formerly a People Express aircraft, Continental Airlines flew the Boeing 737-100 appearing below in an all coach class configuration seating 118 passengers. I flew on a bunch of -200s in my early years of flying and…
