A fellow Boarding Area blogger over at Frequently Flying shares vintage seat maps from older / retired airplanes. Its a way to see how seats used to be configured or remember your days flying an older airplane. In his latest one he asked what seat would you choose in the vintage DC9 seat map. My response was – Vintage? I’m flying a DC 9 next week. These DC 9s have an average age of over 30 years but are still flying.
Delta picked up a few DC 9s in the Northwest acquisition and yes, they are still flying them. They even pulled a few back into service that had been placed in parking. These planes are so old, maybe they do deserve to be called vintage.
So when looking at the vintage seat map, I selected seat 1 A. If I recall correctly, the bulkhead seats don’t crunch my knees and they are a long way from the engines in the back.
What seat would you select from this “vintage” seat map? I wonder when Delta will finally retire this relic?
Finish this sentence: The DC 9 plane is so old…__________________
