|Quoting ARGinLON (Thread starter):|
I was checking some old advertisement and I came across the one below from TW (probably from the early 80’s?). What it surprises me the most, is the little graph comparing the new “747 Ambassador Class” vs. “A typical 747 business class” that shows 3x4x3.
|Quoting Jaysit (Reply 8):|
Business class back in the day was just a small cabin behind First with the same old Y seats but with a bit more legroom and the possibility of having an empty seat next to you. That's about it. Of course, you paid only a small premium over Economy, unlike today.
|Quoting DETA737 (Reply 3):|
American Airlines Business Class 2-4-2
|Quoting JGPH1A (Reply 2):|
2x2x2 was extremely generous for business class, even in those days.
|Quoting EXAAUADL (Reply 4):|
TWA use to also advertise that they had Ambassador Class on all their widebodies and the yalso sold Ambassador Class on domestic flights.
|Quoting ToTheStars (Reply 5):|
TWA also had an international L10 configuration with 2-2-2 Ambassador class seating. Domestic was 2-4-2.
