What is up with this interior?

Talk about a hodgepodge interior. Mix and matching, I see...

Recognize any of the seats?

No, but if it allows the company to lower fares, who cares?

Yes it's clearly a money saving venture.

Even the headrest cloths have been removed. The welcro can clearly be seen.

I think the ones at the front of the pic are UAL seats?

But I might be wrong.

Don't you guys think that they will put some headrest cloths when the plane goes for a flight?

I can't imagine that any airline flies without those headrest cloths and no one says, that the photographer is a passenger, isn't it?

I wonder how many of these seats are still the original Singapore Airlines seats from delivery in the 1970s...

That plane was also in service with OA wasn't it? Looks like some of the OA 747 seats in the back there...?
Some see lines, others see between the lines.

Since the photo was taken of an airliner that's been in storage for over a year since the airline that operated it went bust, I doubt it will be going anywhere in the near future!

Since Transjet are out of business, I'd think that odd seats and missing headrest covers are the least of their problems...

Those are UAL seat covers and I think the rest are tower air!

I'm absolutely certain that that is a former Tower Air a/c. On top of that most are the original seats fro tower with a few united assorted int there.

It's former registration is N620FF which is a Tower Air registration #.

It's the interior of a United Airlines Boeing 747. Probably one of the earlier models, judging from the walls.

The gray seats sure look like United seats,but the caption says it s an Ex-SQ plane,UA's 742's were ex-QF. Must have gotten them from Oriental Thai.
