As stated in this post on the Dutch Police website (Google Translate English version) this morning (12th june 2018), they are looking for all available information concerning the image below. All help is appreciated!

The aircraft in question

[Update] Additional information: the picture was presumably made on the 16th of January 2018 at 20:57 local time. They are looking for any information about airplane type, carrier or maybe even flight number.

  • $\begingroup$ @CrossRoads Presumably, they found the photo on somebody's phone and want to know where the person was on that day. That could be in relation to a criminal inquiry, or a missing person case, for example. I edited the question to link the Google translation of the Dutch Police page. $\endgroup$ Jun 13, 2018 at 15:06

1 Answer 1


It may be an A318 with cabine plan like this one for Avianca:

cabine plan A318-100 avianca

My guesses are:

  • the emergency light line stops around row 6, with the (red?) curtains around row 4.
  • the seats arrangement is approximately 3 rows of business class then economy class.
  • best guess would be 2x3 seats per row, with central screen every three row.
  • cockpit door is slightly not centered to the left

So it can fit with this type of plane.

Sorry, I can't guess the company. The curtains seems red, but the cabine does not fit with AirFrance (and Hop) neither British Airways.


  • According to the video posted by @Florian in comments, Avianca is a good guess for the company.

  • Following the comment of @jean, and considering the shadows on the seats, it may be taken during daylight (in flight or on the ground) but for sure not during night.

    $\begingroup$ Also: I'm not sure at all about the seats but they look like old Aircelle seats (sth like 15 years ago) AirFrance was using in their planes. Not put this guess in my answer, I doubt we can get sth from it. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Florian You're right, it seems to be like this one. Yet I am not sure as this type of plane is owned by several other companies for which I haven't found the cabine interior plan. But I can't find a detail in your videao that don't match the picture. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I looked up from the other carriers that are listed in WP:EN some cabin interior pictures on google image search, they all look totally different. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I tried but since the time stamp doesn’t have a time zone it’s rather difficult to tell which one it could have been $\endgroup$
