747 Economy Seats In The Nose?

Thu Dec 11, 2003 9:57 am

Hi all, the topic "economy upperdeck" made me think of a new post, thanks Aviationfreaks  Smile
So... is it possible to be seated in the nose with an economy ticket ? I remember it was possible on a Royal Air Maroc 747 but it was in 1987 and for a charter flight...
Thanks .

In 1990, I flew on a EI 747 and was seated in the "nose" section. Tjhis was an all economey aircarft and boy did they pack them in.

On KLM's 747-300 all-pax, the nose was economy class as well. Believe there were 49 seats as to 18 seats in business configuration

AI's 2 B743s have an all economy nose as well. Though I'm not too sure, some of the high density JL and NH B747s too may have economy up their noses as well (no puns intended).
