On the DL JFK-ATL 767 leg, depending on the time of day, there should be IFE and Video..Usually a sitcom and Delta magazine and CNN along with beverage service, possibly some-what rushed depending on how it's staffed f/a wise. Pack a lunch!  Laugh out loud


Ah, Summer, Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox and Beer.....

What's the flight #?

Should have IFE (just a few sitcoms, and I'm sure the news or something). A drink and a bag of Delta's snack mix.

I assume you are flying on DL1993 JFK-ATL. Although it is a 767-300ER in an international configuration, it will have standard U.S. domestic IFE. This is the Delta Horizons video program which usually has TV based programming composed of an episode of a popular show such as Friends, JAG, or Monk plus additional features. Sorry, no movies. The flight is not long enough. As for audio, there are eight channels of radio programming available.

Enjoy your flight and thank you for flying Delta.  Smile

I find the variety of a/c used on this route to be pretty amazing. DL operates CRJ 100s, CRJ200s, MD-88s, 757s (song), and 767s. Am i missing any? I know that they also fly 737s on the LGA-ATL flights and dont they also fly Dornier 328s on the EWR-ATL flights?

I was just wondering if I will get similar service from ATL-BOS on DL. I'll be on a 767-400 (my first time on that type). I usually fly FL to BOS whose service is, to say the less, lacking. The last time I flew on DL was this Oct. But on an MD-88 and a 763 on the ride home, which was an early morning flight that I slept through. Before that my last DL ride was in March of '03. We got a movie after an equipment change from a 767-300 to a 757 due to a mx problem which caused a 3 hours delay. The F/A's said that it was not normal, but because of the delay it was for our convenience. I hoping that there will be IFE so that I don't have to lug my laptop with me.

You should get almost identical IFE service ATL-BOS on a 767-400.

That plane is pretty amazing, when you compare it to the 763 and 762, definite evolution at work.

The curvy ceiling tiles and bins make for noticeably larger interior spaces (people near the windows can actually stand UP and not hit the overheads).

They've also definitely done some improvements on the plane's electricals too. On many of the older planes (various makes/models) you'll notice a brief power interruption as they switch over to internal power. This has, on a couple of trips I've been on, actually caused the VHS machines to stop playing the safety tape !.

Not so on the 764 -- it doesn't even hiccup, and the LCD panels are crisp and clear.

Everyone gets the cool controllers in the armrests for controlling the IFE stuff, but only the First Class folk actually get the personal screens too.

It's a great plane, and you should enjoy your trip !

PS : If you're flying coach, try for a seat in rows 10-14. It's a small section of coach seating directly behind first class, and *forward* of the loading door. Because the galley separates you from the rest of the plane, it's usually QUIET !

Litz-
Thanks for the response. I'm glad to hear about the extra head room over the seats...Being 6'4'' I'm always that guy who bangs his head on the over head panel. I also wish that I could get row 10-14, but I just booked the ticket last night and the flight is in less than two weeks so a lot of the seats were gone.

I was wondering if anyone knows if the "availability preferred" seats open up the day of the flight. I chose the 31G for my flight to BOS, but could I improve that the day of the flight when I check in? Thanks for the info
