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?

Quoting 1337Delta764 (Reply 3): 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).
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.
