AA 757 Jumpseat Locations?

Wed Jan 19, 2011 1:56 am

Where are the cabin crew jumpseats located on Americans 757s?

Photos of the cabin seem to show there aren't any at 2L/2R which I found unusual - especially since a
crew member does call back 2L/R during door disarming.

The 2L/2R jumpseats fold out into the aisle from the aux galley before 2R

I've seen this type of jumpseat but don't understand how it's allowedt. It would seem that it would block part of the aisle where it sticks out and could hinder and evacuation. Is there a quick retract feature that springs the jumpseat back into its stored position on command?

There is a jumpseat at both 2L and 2R, however they are retracted and therefore not visible unless they're in position for takeoff/landing. There are three different set-ups depending on configuration.

International 757s (75L):
2L - The jumpseat folds out from the lav wall into the aisle.
2R - The jumpseat pulls out from a stowage space directly behind the last row of Business class.

Domestic 757s (75D):
2L - The jumpseat pulls out from a stowage space directly in front of the closet behind the last row of first/business class seats.
2R: The jumpseat pulls out from a stowage space just forward of the single cart galley housing in front of 2R.

Domestic 757s (75D) Refurbished:
2L: The jumpseat folds out from the lav wall into the aisle.
2R: The jumpseat pulls out from a stowage space just forward of the single cart galley housing in front of 2R.

The jumpseats that stick out in the aisle (like the one that folds out from the lav wall, also called an "ironing board" jumpseat) automatically retract when they're not being sat on (they're spring loaded). The jumpseats that pull out from the closet or galley do not block the aisle, therefore it's a non-issue.

Do the pull-out aisle seats forward or rear face?

They are rear-facing.
