Can any forum members offer any insight as to how the L-188 Electra was to work on as Cabin Crew?
The aircraft had a funny layout, with a single galley located at the rear left-hand door, and a small seating section at the front of the plane split up by the forward entry door. It was common for many airlines to operate the aircraft with just 2 Cabin Crew (Braniff comes to mind). How would the safety demo work? With one FA reading out the demo over the PA, that leaves just one to demonstrate. With the aircrafts cabin layout, I don't think there is any spot onboard where an FA can stand which can be seen by all passengers in all seats.
Also, where were the Cabin Crew stations for take/off landing? the rear lounge or the passenger seats next to the entry doors. As far as I know, the Electra had no Cabin Crew jumpseats

Quoting CitationJet (Reply 2): Here is a link to the interior arrangement of the Braniff Electra and also a photograph of the interior. I don't see any cabin crew seats identified in the interior drawing.
