One word...Ebay! I got some ANA 767 seats (the 2 side of 2-3-2) after they were ripped out when it was sold the Airborne. It took my a couple months before I was able to find them on Ebay. They aren't always for sale--just be patient.

Maybe just call the airline which had the type of aircraft you would like to have seats from, and ask for them. I've got an old Lufthansa economy seat, and I had to search through the net a while until I got a phone nr to order it, so I think the best option is to search the net and actually call the airlines. Hope this helps a bit.

Goodyear AZ has DC-10's scattered around by the hundreds! All are pax and being fitted out as cargo. I am not able to get over there now, but I live in Phoenix. You could call for the control tower in Goodyear, and ask for the number or Name of the Co. That is doing all these gutting and re fitting jobs. I read sometime back they were making the floors stronger, cutting big cargo doors, and general making them flying trucks. That would mean several thousand seats have to go someplace! I will buy 4 first class for my home theater if you have any luck!

There's a company out of Smyna, TN called Max Power Aerospace that sells a/c parts including seats (I believe most of the seats are from 727s, but some could be from DC-10s and A300s):

Well i really want a few.

I can so picture this room with them. The couch could go to a row of 3 economy seats, the big chair to a bizz seat, and the lazyboy to a first class seat, and to finish it off this desk chair to another economy seat.

if you want to go for a lufthansa seat (they got several options), just send an email to juergen.rumstig@dlh.de (they promote this adress in their inflight magazine)

This will be the last time I post this website address. Boneyard2u.com. Just because it's not listed does not mean it cannot be obtained. The man has connections, many connections.

You will receive an answer, positive or negative, within a few days. If not let me know and I'll slap him silly the next weekend.
