Just saw this picture on another website:


One thing strikes me - that there is no kind of class divider, and the economy seats are actually right behind the business class ones. Maybe its just going crazy, but is this normal? Any other airlines have this lack of divider?

I noticed that is Euro Atlantic, a pretty downmarket charter outfit.

I have flown on shorthaul flights where the divider wasn't onboard and the only difference between business and economy was the seats further back had no doilys and the middle seat was used (767)

Thanks to new TSA guidelines and complaints from SkyMarshalls those are coming down on US birds as well. I'm thinking plexiglass doors are in order soon.

In the picture you linked to there is clearly a bulkhead.

This clearly has a lack of curtains, but I'm sure it's only temporary

The Bulkhead on the 767 is probably the galley. I saw an interesting configuration on the one charter flight I have been on: Omni Air International HNL-LAS. They offer a three class cabin on a DC-10-30 with the First and "premium" cabins melded together. Actually the premium passengers sit in the same seats as the main cabin but get the better food and service offered to the FC folks, who just have wider seats. (BTW, 3-4-3 seating in main cabin is torture!). The airplane is an ex-Lufthasa bird... I wonder if it is a configuration Omni just inherited?

Quite similar to AA upholstery. Don't you think?

At first I thought it was an AA bird. Are they identical??

ISTR (but am too lazy to look for it now) that doors of any kind between cabins are specifically prohibited by the FARs (at least for US airlines)... that's why we have the (now returning in translucent form) curtains between cabins.

Also I would think it would have to be "similar to plexiglass" if it were allowed, since plexiglass presumably is fairly nasty when burnt/subjected to extremely high temps.

QF 737 classics and 146s have no divider between J and Y. As did the 738s when first delivered.
