I thought only the B747-100 had one emergency exit at the upper deck, on the right side and none on the left. This NW aircraft doesnt have emrgency exit on the left side, yet it is indicated to be a -200... Can some one explain ?

It´s a -200 as NW has retired all -100 years back. However I can´t explain your emergency exit question!

Cheers

I was a preference by NW to have just one to make their 200's common to their 100's

Many 747-200s have only RH exit on upper deck...
Exit on both sides is an option, was available on 100s and 200s...
Was only required to increase passenger capacity on upper deck.
1 exit = maximum 19 occupants
2 exits = maximum 32 occupants

It's a 2. TWA was the last of the 100's operator I believe.

It is a -200, all the -100 are now gone.

Your question about the 2 exits. The smaller one just over the Captains head is for the Flight Deck crew in an emergency. The other one is for Passengers seated in the Upper Deck. The exit for Passengers is not the 1st and best choice for evacuating the A/C.

can't you spot the 100's by the windows on the upper deck? I thought that the 100's only had the distinctive 3 windows on the second level.....then more windows were added with the 200.

I thought that NW operated the -200's in a charter/holiday layout, ie. more passengers than normal. Wouldn't that require the extra emergency exit - or was the upper deck spared from the holiday seating?

CPH-

I like your term "holiday seating". LOL! We call it the "High Density" a/c.

The Upper Deck on the HD is WBC seats. On the HD, WBC is in the noise (in front of Door 1 and the UD). Main cabin begins at door one and goes back.

PBI, many -100s were ordered with the -200's ten windows.

Recognize a 747-100 from a 747-200 is a nearly impossible thing -
I an generally 99% correct when saying it is one or another, not by the looks, number of UD windows, or UD doors, but merely by what airline or registration... and then here or there, I am wrong. Even 747 pilots cannot be sure.

For me, the only certainty, is looking at the gage of the center wing tank on the flight engineer's panel - and read its capacity, all the rest is basically the same and could either be 100 or 200.

If there were 75 airlines ordering 747-100/200s, there are basically 75 different 100/200 series. The only real "experts" are airplane spotters, certainly not the pilots or mechanics...
