Unique Galley Ovens On NWA 320 And 757?

I was looking at cabin pics at other aviation sites and saw pics of galleys on NWA B753 and A320, and noticed they have hot ovens that I have never seen before.

The ovens look like one huge oven with three small doors, and the A320 rear galley has three of these ovens with a total of 9 doors(!)

Are these ovens unique to NWA? It seems like all other airlines use the ATLAS 32-entree standard ovens.

How many standard entrees fit behind one of those small doors? Are those ovens used at all nowadays, with meal services being scarce on domestic flights?

I believe that they are all separate ovens. I can't speak for the 757, but most of the 319s and 320s have had the ovens removed from the back galley because there is no real use for them anymore.

If I understand your question, allow me to give it a try.

Illustration below ( just work with me, here) :

tray (6 deep) tray (6 deep)*
tray (6 deep) tray (6 deep)*
tray (6 deep) tray (6 deep)*
tray (6 deep) tray (6 deep)*
tray (6 deep) tray (6 deep)*
tray (6 deep) tray (6 deep)*

IIRC, this is what I remember from my ramp/cabin service days.

From looking inside an oven, you'd see a layer of 5 or 6 trays aligned side-by-side.
That'd become one oven.

If I've totally got this wrong, just let me know

* apprx numbers.

Makes sense. But did they have to rip out the entire top half of the galley as the ovens had a different size to the commonly-used ATLAS, and rebuild and standardize everything or did they just make their own storage containers to fit where the ovens used to be?

6 inches deep?

The ovens on the 757 and A320 were in fact individual ovens. There are 6 trays from tops to bottom. One tray holds two First Class entrees or 4 (old) main cabin entrees, IIRC,

As the ovens were removed it does appear that the ovens were installed in 'combined' units as the block's of three that were removed from the back left 3 empty cabinets.

Hope this helps,

NWADTWFA: Thanks a lot, really appreciate it  Smile

What happens with the removed ovens? Wouldn't they be perfect for the E175 and CRJ900s now entering service? Small ovens in small galleys in small aircraft...

Are you asking if I meant to say "6 inches" ?
Because I made no reference to any comment of "6 inches".....just inquiring?

I probably meant 6 entree dishes deep
