Alaska 73G Exit Rows?

In every Alaska Airlines 737-790 photo I have seen I observe one overwing emergency exit plug type door outlined on each side of the fuselage. Looking at a seat map for the same airline/aircraft type, I notice two emergency exit rows per side (rows 12 and 13).

How is it that there are two overwing emergency exit rows per side for one overwing emergency exit door per side? Is this arrangement unique to Alaska 73Gs?

If you go to their WWW site, you'll get the right seat map:

(click on the B73G and then click on the "View Seat Map" link)

But, you're right. Seatguru shows two exits:

And it's wrong. I'm not aware of any B73G with two overwing exits.

Nice catch!

Most 73Gs have two exit rows. One is missing a seat, and the door is right next to it. Then the row behind it is also called an exit row, since the window seat has the best access to the door, and either row can be used to get out the door.

In these configs, the exit row usually has NO extra legroom except the window seat, which has a comfortable 62-64" pitch.  Wink

This is usually the case on the 733/735/736 as long as it is configured in the standard way.

Aha... but the seat map on seatguru clearly shows two overwing exits on the B73G. Compare the above seat map with this one:

http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Ala...Alaska_Airlines_Boeing_737-200.php

So, I do think theat they have screwed up. At least, the seat map for the B73G is misleading...

Yeah, but Tango didn't MENTION seat gurus, and I was responding to him, not your post that was posted while I was typing mine!

And there ARE two exit ROWS, as Tango stated, but only one exit door.

Seatgurus is wrong for putting another door marker, but the seat layout is correct on the map. Great catch. You found an error. But it wasn't part of the original question. It's just a coincidence...

I just looked at NKs seatg map on seatguru for the A319. It has the same exit row configuration as AS on the 73G. So maybe the exit marker seatguru uses is simply to designate an exit row. Where you have 2 exit rows but only one exit. an exit row is defined as a seat or group of seats which has direct access to an exit without crossing an aisle, etc. So both are technically exit rows, however there is only one exit. Thats my best guess as to why they show it as that.
