    Sorry for my ignorance, but on Amfleet I coach, on the right are seats A & C, and on the left D & F. I asked a conductor about the missing B & E seats and he brushed me off... lol.

    Does anybody know?

    Thanks!

    It depends. Is it a 200 or 300? Which airline and which cabin? There may or may not eve be a seat F depending on the answers to the previous questions.

    I know I should stay away from these emotionally charged questions about airlines on a railway board, but typically just as an example, there are two seat numbering profiles used, one for single aisle and one for two aisle aircraft. Single aisle typically has A and F as window and C and D as aisle. Two aisle depending on the airline has A and K or L as window and D, E , H and J as aisle. Usually I is always missing.

    But as PVD says, it depends on the airline.

    Well, so far, I've never heard of twin-aisle Amtrak cars, so I'm not sure that's really relevant here.

    They were never there. The seats I mean. It would be an interesting development when we get 6 abreast seating in Amfleet.
