Hi,
I am pretty sure that I flew OA B737 (can't remember version) in 2003 (I flew it 3 times) and it had 5 abreast in coach! I couldn't find any info on net but I hope that there is somebody that can help me identify or prove that there is a B737 with 5 abreast in coach.

there was already a similar topic but it didn't help much

No way, never.

I used OA extensively between 2001 and 2006.

No OA 737 had 5 abreast seating. Not then, not ever.

Rgds.



So I drive a 4x4. So what?! Tax the a$$ off me for it...oh, you already have... :-(

What month in 2003?? If it was before December 2003 you didnt fly on any 737 because Olympic Airlines ; didnt have any before December that year: http://www.airfleets.net/flottecie/Olympic%20Airlines-active-b737.htm


EDIT: Wait a second. Do you mean Olympic Airways or Airlines?

Which was said many times in the last thread, and seems the most logical.

It had engines on wings ! and the 737 was written on safety-card (i think it was 400 series). I was traveling with 2 relatives and we couldn't sit on the left side because there were only 2 seats... my relative also flew on the same bird and I remember the pic of 5 abreast in coach.

What's the difference? Same airline from Greece.

No OA 737 has ever had 5 abreast seating in Y so you didn't fly an OA 737.

End of debate, next question?

Although I wasn't in aviation at the time, I clearly remember that engines were on wings, and that it had 737 safetycard! It also didn't have OA 717 livery.

Then perhaps you were on a leased bird. But as it were, you were not on an OA 737 with 5 abreast seating.

I've been on an SA 738 with 5 abreast in C so perhaps you were actually in C and just forgot? Here's a picture just in case someone wants to see what a 737 with 5 abreast looks like.

Mate, perhaps you were on it, I honestly don't know. But what I am convinced of is that I flew on an Air 2000 A321 with RR engines - a clear impossibility. I was pretty young at the time, so it was either a 757, or I am mixing up the engines with the next aircraft on the ramp. Are you sure it wasn't perhaps a widebody, or something?

Brian.



Next flights: MAN-ORK-LHR(EI)-MAN(BD); MAN-LHR(BD)-ORK (EI); DUB-ZRH-LAX (LX) LAX-YYZ (AC) YYZ-YHZ-LHR(AC)-DUB(BD)

It can't be because I was at the back of the plane! and the ticket was pretty cheap.

btw, the routes that I've flown are BEG-ATH-BEG in june/july 2003 and ATH-GVA in late 2003.

I'd wish it was a B717 (one of my fav planes), but it certainly was a 737. Perhaps it was a charter version (but it was a scheduled flight)?

According to a.net photos, the OA aircraft that have visited BEG in the summer of 2003 are:

Well, with OA, it doesn't prove anything : The last time I flew OA was on a B737 (ATH-FCO) and there was an A300 safety card in my seat pocket ....
