When Delta Air Lines acquired Western Airlines in 1987, they integrated Westernâ€™s DC-10-10 fleet into their operation. The seat map below reflects a -30 configuration, and unless Iâ€™m wrong, Delta never had -30s so I assume this is a typographical error (this map was published in July 1987). Potential error aside, Iâ€™m a DC-10 aficionado and bring you Deltaâ€™s layout for this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps.
Seating a total of 284 passengers, first class offered 36 seats in a 2-2-2 configuration and the 248 seats in coach were in the typical 2-5-2 layout.
Youâ€™d find me in row two or three in first class. In coach I was always keen to sit near the wing and engine, so youâ€™d find me in a window somewhere in rows 12 to 15.
Where would you sit?
