Hey guys,

so i'm flying tomorrow morning on DL 1297 and it is scheduled to be on a B738 and on DL's site it says B738, however, on flightaware it says B757! So which one is it? BTW what's the difference between B738 and B738/Q?

Plus, is there anyway i could find out the reg on my flights? it's DL 1297 and DL 535 (JFK-ATL-CUN)

According to that, it went as a B752 yesterday (the 19th), so it's using that data to predict what equipment the next trip will use.

Quoting jetblue777 (Thread starter):
BTW what's the difference between B738 and B738/Q?

The Q suffix designates that the flight is using RNP and RVSM. Sometimes they use different systems, which are denoted by different suffixes (you see lots of different suffixes on FlightAware).

What you'd be interested to know is that your aircraft tomorrow for flight 1297 will is categorized by DL as a 73H, not a 738. The H means that it's an -800 with winglets. For Delta, that also means you have Wi-Fi, PTVs with AVOD and satellite television, and USB power ports.

Just checked delta.com and your second flight is on a standard 738. There should be Wi-Fi while you're still over the continental USA, but there will be overhead screens for other entertainment. Also, the flight on the 19th was indeed a B752 (must've been a sub). Today's flight was on an 738 (not a 73H). Looks like you got lucky.

As for the registrations (I can't believe I just did all this), DAL535 will be N3740C. I wasn't able to find DAL1297 but it might be N3766 based on the departure times although gate numbers don't match up so I wouldn't count on it.

Quoting KingFriday013 (Reply 1):

Thank you so much KingFriday013! More than what I asked for, very detailed!

And I'm a bit disappointed that DL 535 will be operated by a 738 (w/o PTVs) oh well, at least it's a 73H to ATL.

Once again, a much appreciated response!
