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 most other all-coach 727-200s flying in the late-1980s had four fewer rows, such as this one from Braniff.
You’d find me in a window seat near the front, such as 5F.
Where would you sit?
