American Airlines Douglas Sleeper Transport parked in front of the Grand Central Air Terminal, Glendale, California, twilight, 1936

Jane's 1938 says the DST had six berths on each side of the aisle, then in front of them was the "buffet" on the left and a compartment for two passengers on the right. Berths were 77 inches long, lowers were 36 inches wide and uppers were 30.

In August 1937 American had three Douglases a day out of Glendale, all to Newark: DSTs at 1630 (three stops) and 2230 (six stops), and the 14-stop dayplane left in the morning.
