If I'm reading this seat map correctly, there were two "take off" seats for Cabin Crew in the rear lavs of the DC-7C! (It's a BOAC seat map)

Have any other aircraft had crew seats there?

Great seat map, they don't make 'em like that any more  

Yes, looks like two stewards had the pleasure of sitting on the dunny during take-off and landing. The other two had nice seats up front. But I believe the lavs on those good old aircraft were more spacious and more "powder-room looking" than today's lavs.

Safety regulations were probably less strict during take-off and landing back then. Now, bigger exits must have at least one FA sitting close by during critical phases of flight.



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

I wouldn't put it past MOL.. anything to save money! Why not let passengers travel in the cargo hold??  



Happy -go- lucky kinda guy!

I believe the J-41 has a cabin crew jumpseat in the aft cabin that is technically in the lav, when the lav is in use.

Interesting... but maybe even bigger news - how about one lav for every eleven pax... wow!

The J-41 did have the flight attendant jumpseat in the lav. Anyone that flew Jetstreams for ACA knew about ship #333. It had an interesting name that involved the lav and jumpseat!

I know some of the senior Braniff hostesses used to talk about having to sit in the lavs for take off and landing on the DC-7. They said passengers would turn around and stare and they would just smile and wave (and mumbling unrepeatable language under their breath).
