767 Exit Doors

Thu Apr 13, 2017 9:21 pm

After doing some research I noticed at least 3 different layouts of Exit doors on the 767. Zoom had a 767 with 6 Exit doors + 2 overwing Exit doors. AC Rouge has a 767 win 4 Exit doors + 4 over wing Exit doors. Then AC has one with 8 Exit doors and 0 overwing Exit doors. Any rhyme or reason to these differing designs?

It's a customer option on the 763. The 752 also had multiple customer options for exit configuration (6 doors with overwings or 8 doors).

The different options have different max seat counts. According to the EASA 767 type certificate, the seat counts are as follows:
("Standard" doors on the 767 are Type-A; the overwing exits are Type-III, and the smaller exit just aft of the wing is Type-I)

A-III-A: 255 seats
A-III-III-A: 290 seats

A-III-III-A: 290 seats
A-A-III-A: 290 seats
A-A-I-A: 351 seats

A-A-I-A: 375 seats

I think AC retired their odd 8 door 763s a few years back.

Fun fact, unless I'm wrong HA is the only airline to operate all 3 on the 763 at the same time. It surprises me that the A-A-I-A option isn't nearly as common. It seems to me that with L2 boarding and F or J with maybe some Y+ depending on size of F/J cabin forward of L2 boarding door. Y behind L2 would be a good configuration without needing to lose a row of seats for the door directly behind the wing, instead having the overwing exits.
