|Quoting Lincoln (Thread starter):|
To try to jog my memory, I pulled up the seat map for Delta's MD-88s on Seat Guru, and wait...hmm... my seat (17A) was the 3-seat (A/B/C) side of the aisle. I thought it was A/B then D/E/F on the DC-9 derivitives.
|Quoting CVG777 (Reply 1):|
From what I have read before I believe that the reason for the three abreast on the left side of the Delta MD-88 was to allow for a larger galley at the rear left side exit.
|Quoting Ckfred (Reply 6):|
Typically, aircraft manufacturers that build planes with 5 across seating in coach go 2+3. An airline has to request 3+2 seating. AA's MD-80s are 2+3, as were the F100s.
|Quoting Burnsie28 (Reply 7):|
For one the MD-80 was not a DC-9 replacement, NW was more interested in finding a plane that was the same size as the DC-9-30 is, which is not the MD-80, so despite the relationship, and the small fleet, NW found it not cost effective enough and did not fit the mission that the DC-9 does.
