Surprisingly, a B747 of Northwest landed at Vienna Airport today. The departure and arrival page of Vienna International Airport informs that the plane arrived from Minneapolis and will head for Nassau tomorrow. It is supposedly a charter flight, but for which exact purpose?

A cruise possibly.

Seems the most likely option.

A large banking group is moving people to Nassau for some sort of meeting. Several carriers are doing flights from HAJ, MUC, VIE and ZRH on 17Aug.

That's a lot of people going to Nassau... I wonder if there will be any workers left in the bank  Wink

They'll be gone for one week, returning a week from today I think.
If you're in HAJ, MUC or ZRH you'll be graced with DC-10's from World Airways.

Not to change the subject, but do they keep the same configuration/seats as when the 742s were in passenger service? (PTV in premium class, 2-5-2 coach configuration, etc., and if so, are the movies updated?)

747's are normally 3-4-3 in coach, not 2-5-2. The genius that came up with the 5th seat in the middle on the DC-10's and L-1011's should have been shot on the spot.

When I flew on N624US last year it was in the 3-4-3 configuration, I kinda doubt they'd change it to 2-5-2 just for charter.

Give me 2-5-2 any day of the week. Only need to climb over one person to get to the aisle.

Much rather have 2-5-2 on the 777s than 3-3-3.

Even when 747s did use 9-abreast seating in Y class for their first few years of service, they were always 3-4-2, not 2-5-2. I have never seen a 10-abreast 747 in anything other than 3-4-3. By the late 1970s almost all early 9-abreast 747s had been converted to 10-abreast. Many airlines starting making the switch around 1974/75.

Well I feel stupid, somehow I was thinking a NW DC-10, not a 747. My bad...thanks for clearing that up. I'm assuming the old WorldBusiness seats still remain?

Did all airlines follow the 2-5-2 configuration for the DC-10/MD-11? I seem to recall flying on a Swiss MD-11 with a 2-4-2 configuration.

3-4-2. Several airlines had that on their MD-11s (KLM, maybe Finnair too), but I'm not aware of any DC-10s configured like that.


LY744.

KL's MD-11s were originally 2-4-3, with the 2-abreast seats on the left side facing forward, opposite of the early 747 9-abreast layout which was 3-4-2 with the 2-abreast seats on the right side. As mentioned, Swissair's MD-11s were 3-4-2 with the 2-abreast seats on the right side.

When KL reconfigured their MD-11s a year or so ago with fewer business class and more economy class seats they changed from 2-4-3 to 3-3-3 in Y class.
