How many types of 300's does American have? I recently flew on one that was 2-4-2 seating, but towards the back it was 2-3-2 seating. Why is that?

AA has 35 A300-600R.
Some are for the Caribbean, & some for domestic.
Seating will vary depending their assignments. Regards.

Towards the rear of the aircraft, it becomes narrower and therefore a seat must be taken out.

American uses its A300's on high capacity carribean routes, and to Europe from EWR, JFK, and BOS.

Take a look at any of the Airbus widebodies and toward the rear the fuselage tappers of and has a slight incline. Look at the last section of windows on paticularly the A300,330 and 340 to less of an extent on the 310.

Most widebodies 'taper' at the back.

I was on a Delta L1011 last week and the last four or so rows was 2-4-2 instead of the usual 2-5-2. Same thing for the CO DC-10 I was on a couple of months ago - 2-4-2 instead of 2-5-2.

However, I'm pretty sure 767s don't. I haven't been on one in awhile, can some one confirm?

AKelley728 is right. 767's don't have that on their last row in coach like other widebodies have. 2-3-2 is the seat configuration on the 767 coach cabin all the way to the end. On American that's how it is, I'm not sure about other airlines.
Hope this helps.
