Azur Air B763. 336 seats?

Sun Feb 05, 2017 4:26 pm

According to their website (use google translate for English) , Russian carrier Azur Air has 336 seats on their B763. Is this a typo? Is it even legal?

Isn't the exit limit for the B763 supposed to be 290?

Edit: Found the type certificate data sheet document. Seems as though with 3 pairs of Type A plus 1 pair of Type I exits, the limit is up to 351. (p.10)

8 abreast in a 767 must be awful!

High density 767s have been around for some time. Britannia and Thomas Cook were both takers in the UK charter market, and had seating layouts which were(are) 2-4-2 and north of 320 seats depending on whether any were extra room seats.

TOM are still using theirs across the Atlantic to Barbados and other locations but most of that flying is now 788 territory. They have been superb people movers around Europe and the Med as well. I used to be amazed watching a TCX (or Airtours as they were at the time) 763 being loaded with 326 passengers, bags and even cargo (plus TVR cars) bound for the USA.

Azur uses these 767s on DME-PUJ, that's over 5,000 nm long. At that range, they are surely leaving 70-80 seats open.
