Congratulations to Frontier man.
Air Canada also had a good answer.

The first Airplane to employ a spiral staircase was the Dornier DOX which first flew in 1926. This magnificent plane was in a museum and destroyed by US allied bombs during WWII. What a tragedy.

Other aircraft that employed spiral stairs were the Boeing 314 flying boat,Boeing 377 Statocruiser and the Boeing 747.
