Row 39 In BA747s - What Is It?

Thu Feb 28, 2002 7:26 am

Well, their seat map (on british-airways.com) shows it as only three starboard seats in economy marked as "no view seats" (no window?) while seat map on ual.com shows row 39 in BA Boeing747 to have 7 seats, without "a", "e" and "f"... So, what are they, do they have window? Thanks for any information. (BTW, this looks to be my first thread here...)

It depends on how the plane is configured, most likely the difference being if the plane has the New Club World and World Traveller Plus. Also, if you are comparing BA 747s and UA 747s seat maps, it will be different because of the different configurations for each airline.

Well, ual.com (seat booking) shows BA (not UA) 747 to have 7 seats in row 39 while BA site shows 3 seats in row 39 in any configuration... Thanks anyway!

The expression 'non-viewing' does not refer to window views - it relates to inflight video where ther are no seat-back videos.

All aircraft vary, but both seat plans in BA/UA sites of the BA 744 are the same - row 39 comprises seats HJK only on most versions. There are no seats 39ABCDEFG.

Interactive Seat Selection on ual.com flight reservation system shows 7 seats in row 39 in BA747, for instance, for flight BA175 on March, 5th, and BA178 on March, 29th and allows selection of 39B or 39G... apparently, they exist and are "'non-viewing" ones (now I know what it means, thank you!).

Well, I don't know what UAL are up to, but if you take a look at BA's site again, there's only one plan of 744 which actually has other seats apart from HJK! All the remaining seatplans have only 39HJK!

However, if the journey in mind is the BA 176, I think you'll find that seat plans 747-400(1) and (2) are relevant, as to my knowledge all the JFK flights are now including WT+. The other one, just 747, is perhaps in the minority. Row 39 does not have a full row of seats!

Yes, the journey in mind is JFK - LHR and the question was a contradiction in what BA site shows and what ual.com reservation system allows to book (unfortunately, BA site doesn't allow seat booking so I had to look at ual.com to get a seat map of BA aircraft). Looks like nobody knows/remembers what it is in the cabin, not in a picture...  Smile Thanks anyway!

RIX:

Welcome to airliners!

Anyway, I did a quick check on www.itn.com and it looks like there is only 39HJK.

ITN is a great website, run by American Express travel.
