Delta's 764s are ok, if I were you, I'd try to fly CO's first. They're configured much nicer than DL's and they have the PTVs. As far as the new ceilings and bins, both are the same, and they are a leap forward from the older interiors.

My guess it does a welcome in the language of all the Countries CO serves, does two things by doing that, welcome those people who speak that language, also serves to advertise all the different Countries that CO flies to.

Thanks for the tip. I flew a Continental 757 twice and it was quite nice, as well, though nowhere near what is offered in their 764s, obviously. My name is Jeff, also.

The CO 762, 764, and 777 all have the same PTV/IFE system, and it is set up to display "Welcome" in the language of every nation/region that Continental serves.
Delta's 764's are arranged in a high-density domestic configuration for cramming 300+ people on ATL-CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO runs. CO's 764's are fitted with their intl. coach product (identical to that of the 777 and 762), and businessfirst seats, accomodation 235.

DL 764's seat around 287 if I'm not mistaken...
Continental fitted them for medium-density, high-yield, frontline international service, with Hawaii and domestic US as secondary missions. The 764 is tailor-made for the Atlantic routes, where it has been a consistent moneymaker since it joined our fleet, and also has proven its worth in the Pacific region where its capacity matches high demand routes out of GUM quite well.
I fly them about 70% of the time these days, and I must say that it is one of the most pilot friendly aircraft I've ever worked, right next to the 777. It's also pretty damn graceful with those raked wingtips, and a nice ride all the way through. It's a shame just DL and CO operate them, the 764 is sure a beauty.

I never knew that there were welcome aboard banners. I flew on a CO 764 out of HNL to IAH and they had music with a video of Hawaii nature sites running. I agree that CO's 764's are very comfortable.
777gk, I guess you could say that Hawaii/Guam is a secondary mission for the 764 (35/200). But just to be technical, most of the 767-400's that fly Hawaii/Guam routes are from CO Micronesia configured 20/236 (767).

Yes, I think as of early this year, all of the 767s in the Pacific region have the new configuration.
I was referring to the presence of our premium international cabin on those flights, whereas on many airlines, Hawaii and domestic widebody service gets a domestic first class or older international first class seat. We offer the same "hard" product on all widebody flights, just in different configurations.

Im taking my girlfriend to California in August, I tried very hard to book us through IAH on one of the legs so we could use my Onepass points to upgrade to BF on one of CO's 767s or 777s.
However the nonstop flights from EWR-LAX and SAN are cheaper than connecting through IAH, so I booked us on a 757 from EWR-LAX in coach and I used some OnePass points to upgrade our return flight from SAN which is on a 737-800.
I figured flying FC on a trans-con 737-800 would be the best use of the miles since the 757s coach is a little roomier.
