Very Old First Class Seats

Mon May 17, 1999 7:35 am

What is the oldest First Class seat you have seen or sat in? By oldest I mean no extras, like Video Screens, and telephones. I have seen a photo of a Delta First Class seat in a book, and it was exactly like a Coach seat, except larger.

First Class seats didn't really get all the extras until about ten years ago. In fact, I remember in 1990 Eastern started installing new first class seats and I thought it was really extraordinary that they each had their own phone. So I guess anytime I flew in the 80's I saw an old first class seat. They usually looked just like the coach seats only bigger. Sometimes they weren't even leather.
