I just booked a flight on Delta to Rome. The flights will be operated by an Airbus A330-300. As I usually never fly American carries overseas, what should I expect from Delta’s European service?

You should expect a pretty good ride. The A330 is one of our best aircraft, that and the 777. If you can, try and get seated between rows 10-28 so you have the power outlet to use. Best rows 10-25, becuase the last 3 rows you're adjancent to the midcabin lavatories, and I don't have to elaborate why.

What is your point of origin?

Free wine and beer for the whole flight. Hard alcohol is not free. I believe that there is now a warm breakfast option also.

You should be departing from T4 at JFK (unless things have changed the flights operated by former NW equipment tend to use T4) which should be a nicer experience than T3, although I believe that you still check in at T3 and are bussed over to T4. Someone more familiar with the O/D side of the JFK operation can let you know for sure.

Headsets are free as are beer and wine. The A330 has an AVOD system in all classes and the first Y section also has power ports. Y service on DL is pretty standard. You get a drink service after departure, then dinner (usually a choice between pasta and chicken), and breakfast prior to arrival. Additionally, DL FA's have always been good about being available in the galley if you're thirsty between services.

As opposed to the cabin? Where else would they be?

Har de har har.   Seriously though, I meant as opposed to those who shut the curtains and make it clear that they don't want "visitors" in the galley through the flight. I don't believe that this is generally done on US carriers, but I have seen it on some foreign carriers.

Does this apply to trans-pacific as well?

Yes. I cannot remember the mileage requirement, but all TPAC flights qualify, as well as deep South America, Middle East, Africa, and most of Europe.

The A330 is the best for American carriers across the pond for Delta, besides the 767-400. Pre-merger, Northwest, could at long last brag on a quality product trans atlantic. Even the the Delta CEO mentioned a secret admiration for the A330

You'll have a great flight. Srv onboard DL is good -on par with CO in my opinion. DL f/as are usually good about being seen, so don't be afraid to ask for more beer   

Like OA said 2 choices for dinner and plenty of snackbags and biscoff lol

Have a great flight

I will be flying the DL 757 between ARN and JFK this summer, as well as the A330 between DTW and AMS. How is Delta's transatlantic service on the 757?

You can also expect your A330 flight to be staffed by a NYC-based pre-merger Delta crew. JFK-FCO is one of the first flights to be "cross staffed" as of May 1.

DL TATL flight are the best for US carriers in my opinion. Very professional crews and for the most part friendly and helpful. I have never flown CO across the pond but I have flown quite a few US carriers and DL beats them all. I recently flew on DL - operated by NWA between AMS and SEA - peanuts and drink after take off, then meal service (drink round), mid-flight snack (which surprised me) and finally a small pizza an hour or two out of SEA. Two hours out of SEA a passenger became ill and the F/A's handled the situation very professionally and calm.

Regards,

Chepos
