For this installment of Vintage Airline Seat Maps, I bring you a single-class Piedmont Airlines Boeing 737-200 seen flying the skies in 1987.

Other Piedmont aircraft operating at that time included Boeing 727s, 737-300s, Fokker F28s, as well as dual-class Boeing 767-200s on its Charlotte-London Gatwick route.

While 10A/F on the map below probably offered the greatest legroom, you’d likely find me in 4A/F on this aircraft.

Where would you sit?

    I remember the days of smoking/no smoking planes. Love the “buffer” zone in Row 15.

    @Linda: Right?! As if the buffer zone really did anything. ;-)

    I was 5 years old in 87. I have to ask, who in their right mind would want to sit in the buffer seat? Sounds like the worst part of the plane!

    You’d probably find me in 2D or 3D, with 2C/3C as alternate choices.

    I’m curious about why you would choose row 4. I got the window part, but why row 4?

    Any chance that you can find a B707-720B mid-range domestic chart from about 1967? For a trip between SLC and MSP, I guessing that it would h ave been United or Northwest, in t hat order. I have no clue how you come up with these vintage maps, but they are often FUN – and thanks! For a , consider this same, single-class B732 in today’s market; the CL, GB and ST spaces would be gone, there would be three LV spaces, one forward and two aft and the last row, with ‘limited or partial recline’ would be numbered about 25, (148 seats) to stay under the mandatory FA:PAX ratio of 1:50. Yes, the 732 had the horsepower to haul more than 150 souls, as long a knees and kidneys got along well. And heck yes, in this configuration I’d also consider seats 9B or 9D, for obvious reasons. Fun stuff.

    @Cedargien: Row 4 appeals to me for a great view from the window forward without wing abstraction, while at the same time still being able to look back at the engine and wing. I guess row 2 or 3 would do the same, but 4 is closer. ;-) And believe me, if I can find truly “vintage” seat maps, such as your request, I’ll certainly post them. I have posted a few American 707s at least!
