I was bored and doing a "cabin view" quiz and came across this photo:

I am wondering if someone has any ideas regarding the high-backed seat in the 4th row from the front. Does this aircraft's combi configuration have anything to do with it?

BTW I got 100% on the quiz. Yes, I am a nerd.  


Rule #176. Any device that can crawl across the table on medium, does not need to be brought into the office.

Crew seat in the exit-row.

WOW! Learn something new everyday. Even as a 727 fan, I never knew there were combies! Thankx for sharing...

Yes, its the forward F/A seat since the cabin bulkhead is right ahead of the overwing exits instead of where the fwd F/A seat would normally be up front near the fwd LH door. This is also the one and only 727-200 Combi converted by Pemco for First Air. Boeing factory built 727-100C's but not any -200's

Any reason why its higher is it because of the harness.

Required to have a headrest, for head and neck support in an impact situation. I used to work on 727-100, where the FA assigned to 1R (midcabin galley) sat in a passenger seat in the row right across from the door. It looked exactly like what you see in the picture above.

Why not for the Pax then......The location needing a headrest would be for Aft facing seats right.

Crew seats have different design/restraint requirements than pax seats. Both fwd and aft facing F/A seats have headrests.

Excerpt from 14 CFR 25.785:

(h) Each seat located in the passenger compartment and designated for use during takeoff and landing by a flight attendant required by the operating rules of this chapter must be:
(5) Either forward or rearward facing with an energy absorbing rest that is designed to support the arms, shoulders, head, and spine.
(6) Equipped with a restraint system consisting of a combined safety belt and shoulder harness unit with a single point release. There must be means to secure each restraint system when not in use to prevent interference with rapid egress in an emergency.
