For this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps, I bring you a Continental Airlines DC-9-30 seen flying the skies in 1987.
I previously posted Continental’s DC-9-10 seat map, and this “stretched” -30 version was produced in competitive response to the Boeing 737.
This bird lacked a forward lavatory, so first class passengers had to make the trek to the back like you do today on several regional jets. You’d find me seated in 3A or 3F up front.
Superstition apparently prevented numbering a row 13 in coach, but why row 20? Here, you’d find me near the front in a window seat, such as 6A or 7A.
Where would you sit?
