10 Across 2-6-2?

Tue Mar 30, 2004 9:02 am

A local radio station is doing a contest, the person that can guess the seat number on the ticket wins a free trip to PVR. I printed out the seat map from their website and the seating is 2-6-2 with 46 rows. I believe this would be a L-1011. What do you think? And could this be one of ATA's L-1011's? Who else would have one available for charter? By the way this is all through Sun Trips so maybe that will help. Please let me know all ya can.

Well being in rows E and F would be no different than the window seat of a 737 3+3 or 777 3+3+3, your 2 seats from an isle.

Don't rely on a Radio Station for accurate airline information. I believe I've spotted the problem. The radio station has listed seats ranging from A to J, but probably does not realize that airlines don't use "i" seats. The cabin plan should PROBABLY be: A-B // C-D-E-F-G // H-J

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

I do understand what you are saying PA110, however this is a supervised contest where the point is to pick the correct seat number. I do not think they could have made any kind of mistake on this. I believe it would be illegal to make a mistake that big in a contest where the entire point is to pick the correct seat. I dunno........

I don't believe it is ever illegal to make a mistake. It might be embarassing, but not illegal.

The point of course is that such as seating arrangement is illegal.

It is not legal to be more than 2 seats from the aisle.

3-5-3 is the densest legal arrangement.

Gigneil ,


With 2-6-2 you're also 2 seats from the isle. 2-7-2 is illegal.....

Quite right you are.

Expect 3-5-3 on a QF 380.

I called Sun Trips to see what kind of bird it is, I explained that the seat map shows 2-6-2, and she told me that was the 757! I told her that the 757 is not a wide body and she got an attitude with me and said I didnt know what I was talking about, I explained to her that she was a complete idiot and should be fired. She was not happy and hung up on me! I am starting to think that the radio station is just very confused and they are using a 757. I do not even think that a widebody aircraft could land at PVR????

Wait a sec, Gigneil. It's been a long day so bear with me, but if the rule is "it is not legal to be more than 2 seats from the aisle," wouldn't 6 seats in a section still be legal? The middle seats - the 3rd and 4th - are each 2 seats from the left and right aisles, respectively. Or is it that each seat must be within 2 seats of the aisle in BOTH directions? (obviously applying only to middle sections).

Having just read the entire web site, I don't think that they ever intended this seat map to be a real aircraft. The contest is just a more elaborate version of "pick a number from 1 to 10". They pick a seat on this imaginary seat chart, and if you guess the seat they picked, you win the prize.

If the 7E7 has 2-6-2 seating I think Boeing will have a problem selling it! I dont even think the people at Airbus will make the A380 have seating like that!

I'm sure PA110 has the right answer. I was going to post a similar one but he beat me to it. I don't think any real aircraft has a seating arrangement like the one on the web site. 460 passengers in one cabin! No way  Yeah sure

I agree with PA110 - plus I dont think any airline has ever had an "I" seat.. just J and K for the aisle/window... or H-J-K for aisle/middle/window... correct me if Im wrong...
