Pan Am A310 - Cabin As Delivered

Mon Oct 10, 2011 4:49 pm

Dear all,

My son and I were discussing the Pan Am A310s that were used on the IGS routes in the 1980s. Does anybody have any cabin photos of the A310 from that time, i.e. as they were when they were delivered?

Thanks in advance for your help!

All the best

I think I may have one or two from right after the DL acquisition, in TLV. I'll have to dig them up.

Here is a DL A-310-200. The seat covers, carpet and bulkheads are all Pan Am.

Well, your interior pics are better than anything I have. Thanks for showing us.

And if I remember, the floor in the very aft of the cabin sloped upward

That is common with all Airbus wide body aircraft, except the A380.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

An Airbus trademark - I remember the AB3s that way too.

I wonder how long that was after we acquired the a/c. I seem to remember that PanAm used the electronic type.
