I previously did a thread on what aircraft type I flew on an overnight flight on a DL SFO-ATL flight in 1992, and I got an answer: it was a 763.

Now, I would like to know, what 767 variant did I fly on a DL ATL-SJU flight in July 1996? I know it was a 767, but I don't know if it was a 762 or 763.

The flight was a midday flight, where we had lunch onboard and arrived at SJU in the afternoon. Our prior flight arriving into ATL was a morning 722 flight from ORF.

EDIT: I don't know if this means anything, but I remember that the seats onboard that 767 were of autumn-like colors, such as red, orange, and tan.

Two other flights around that time are 757s.

The autumn colored seat covers were on ships 101-132 (or so). Later 763 domestics had the 767ER seat covers. It is possible you were on an early model 763 equipment swap.

This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

I'm guessing it was most likely a 762. Those departure/arrival times seem to be about right. Thanks.

BTW, my return trip was on a 757.

Just as a side question, looking at the previous photo, I also remember the pull-down projection screens on my flight. However, on a 762 flight in 2005, there were flip-up screens instead. When did DL switch from the pull-down screens to the flip-up type?

The pull down screen was probably due to the "art" on the wall, as most DL movie screens were the flip type. The 767 F/C to Y/C bulkhead screen was always a flip screen because two bins could not be opened when watching a movie. The pull down screens were replaced with stationary silver screens sometime in the late '90s (to save on maintenance costs).
