American A300s

Mon Apr 02, 2001 8:56 am

How many types of 300's does American have? I recently flew on one that was 2-4-2 seating, but towards the back it was 2-3-2 seating. Why is that?

AA has 35 A300-600R.
Some are for the Caribbean, & some for domestic.
Seating will vary depending their assignments. Regards.

Towards the rear of the aircraft, it becomes narrower and therefore a seat must be taken out.

American uses its A300's on high capacity carribean routes, and to Europe from EWR, JFK, and BOS.

Take a look at any of the Airbus widebodies and toward the rear the fuselage tappers of and has a slight incline. Look at the last section of windows on paticularly the A300,330 and 340 to less of an extent on the 310.

747 also taper, and loose seats at the rear of the aircraft.

Most widebodies 'taper' at the back.

I was on a Delta L1011 last week and the last four or so rows was 2-4-2 instead of the usual 2-5-2. Same thing for the CO DC-10 I was on a couple of months ago - 2-4-2 instead of 2-5-2.

However, I'm pretty sure 767s don't. I haven't been on one in awhile, can some one confirm?

AKelley728 is right. 767's don't have that on their last row in coach like other widebodies have. 2-3-2 is the seat configuration on the 767 coach cabin all the way to the end. On American that's how it is, I'm not sure about other airlines.
Hope this helps.
