Let’s kick off the Memorial Day weekend with another Vintage Airline Seat Map, shall we? I previously posted two other versions of American Airlines’ DC-10s from the past (here and here), and the one appearing below was seen flying the skies in 1987.
Seating a total of 313 passengers in a high-density “Hawaii” configuration, there were only 16 First Class seats scrunched up there where the fuselage begins to taper towards the flight deck. It appears they removed the front galley on this version to accommodate the seats, which were in a 2-2-2 layout.
Economy seated 297 passengers in the common 2-5-2 configuration. Something interesting to note is that they had an entire closet dedicated for just blankets (near the rear lavatories).
I’d definitely be seated in ‘Zone 1’ ahead of door two. In First, you’d likely find me in the second row and in economy I’d probably go for row five or six.
Where would you sit?
