United Airlines was the launch customer for the Boeing 767-200, but both American and Delta were quick to also place orders for the then revolutionary widebody twinjet in 1978. Iâ€™m not sure if Delta ever flew this model overseas, but the 767 was apparently the most frequently used airliner for transatlantic flights between North America and Europe in the 1990s.
This installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps features a domestic Delta Air Lines 767-200 from 1987. Seating a total of 204 passengers, First Class offered 18 seats in a 2 x 2 x 2 configuration and coach had 186 seats in the usual 2 x 3 x 2 setup. Delta operated a total of 14 of the -200s and one still remains. The Spirit of Delta can be viewed in all her glory at the Delta Heritage Museum located at the carrierâ€™s headquarters.
In First Class Iâ€™d be in either 2A or 2F and in coach Iâ€™d prefer a window in row 13 or 14 for a great view forward, and a good look back at the engine.
Where would you sit?
