Re: JFK Old IAB Overwing Jetways

Not to change the subject but Pan Am had 3 airbridges at each gate as well as separate boarding lounges. The first two went to L1 and L2 with the third hooked up to R2.These were put up in advance of the 747's coming to JFK. However, they didn't last too long as the airbridge on the right side of th...

Re: Us Air flight 1549

The number of flight attendants is dictated by the number of seats on an aircraft, not the number of passengers, hence one f/a for every 50 seats.

Re: 60 years ago today, Pan Am received its first 707

No doubt PA's 707s were always four-across in First and six-across in Tourist or Economy or whatever it was. IATA might have set the minimum seat pitch? Maybe 34 inches? As far as I can remember Pan Am had 3 different configs on the 707's. Standard was 16/141, RTW and deep South America as well as ...
