Business Class Only Layouts

Tue May 16, 2006 11:57 pm

Does anyone have any diagrams or layouts of Airbus A340s or Boeing 747s in an all business class configuration? I'm curious to know how many rows there are and how many seats per row. One person said BA's 747s in biz-class config seat about 290.

I think someone is pulling your leg. The only business class only airliners I have heard of are all 763 size and smaller. I have never heard of a BA 747 outfitted in all Biz.

The only all biz B747 would be some private jets, and they are mainly configured for only couple of persons so that makes them not exactly business Big grin
Anyway does anybody have any seatmaps of the jumbo private jets??

For a while after Concorde was initially grounded back in 2000, BA had 2 744s with over 100 Club seats.

The layout was 2:2 on the upper deck, for 20 seats.

1st Class was still 14 seats in front of door 1.

Club then went all the way from door 1 to door 4 arranged as 2:4:2.

The final section of cabin from door 4 to door 5 was normal economy.

There was not quite the anticipated demand for Club as BA had thought and the 2 aircraft were very difficult to fit into the schedule due to the config differences. As a result it was quite a short lived layout.

All in all there were a little more than 200 seats on the aircraft.
Flown on A300B4/600,A319/20/21,A332/3,A343,B727,B732/3/4/5/6/7/8,B741/2/4,B752/3,B762/3,B772/3,DC10,L1011-200,VC10,MD80,

World Airways probably has the closest thing with and MD11ER that has a config of 12/78/23. The 12 seats are full sleeper seats, the 78 are expanded business class and the 23 are "super economy". This a/c operates exclusivly for Sonair flying IAH/LAD 3x week.

113 seats in an MD-11? There must be loads of space on board... I was guessing a large widebody airliner would accomodate something like 200-225 seats in all biz-class. How many seats does MaxJet have in their 767s?
