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 did occasionally sit towards the rear of the aircraft because I liked to watch the engine “come apart†after landing when reverse thrust kicked in. The -100 had the same engine configuration.

Seat 2A looks to be the best window seat on this aircraft, so you might also find me there.

Where would you sit?

  1. I flew on one of these once and was so taken aback by the engine I couldn’t believe it. I was pretty young so I’ve always thought I just imagined it so thank you for confirming the fact that these actually do exist.
