Well if youre "lucky" enough to get on a domestic 767-300, you dont have much to look forward to. The seats are pretty standard fare, and the leather portions of them are quite beat up. Look forward to pretzels and peanuts, but at least you'll get all the free drinks you want, and they'll be served to you in a real glass. Remember, these aircraft are domestic and used quite often on Florida (read: tourist) routes. The interiors can be pretty beat to hell at times.
The intl. 767-300ER's are in much better condition, and they have Biz Elite.

On www.delta.com it says:
"Meal Service Availability:
Several criteria including time of day, flying time, and mileage are used to determine the appropriate meal service. Food will be served in First Class on Delta flights more than 700 miles (approximately two hours) within the continental U.S. and in Economy Class on flights to Alaska and Hawaii."

Wow, first of all I'm surprised they have a 767 on that route... i usually get stuck on either an MD-88 or a 757 if I'm lucky.
However, my connections from ATL to FLL are usually on DL 767's. The first class is just "ok" in my opinion on the 767. The seats are no wider than coach (maybe an inch or two). The only added "benefit" is the PVT and the foot rest that drops down from the seat in front of you... oh and adjustable head-rests. Just keep in mind that domestic first class (on any airline, not just DL) isn't anything special. My personal opinion, I much prefer DL domestic first on their 757's... okay, I know there's no PVTs, but the old fashioned, very wide, leather seats are much more comfortable. I almost forgot... the leg room in first class on the 767 is bad in my opinion... much better on the 757.
As far as meal service goes... if it's an evening flight, it's a cold-serve "meal". If I remember correctly, last time I flew... the meal was a cold grilled chicken breast, cold marinated vegetables over a cold pasta salad, some bread sticks and a pre-packaged brownie. Mind you it's not exactly what I would call gourmet... but hey, at least it's food. Take my advice... have a few glasses of wine first... it will help it go down
And getting back to the PVTs... you only have 2 choices... the moving map or the Delta Horizons. But then again, on a 2.5 hour flight, do you even need PVTs??
Hope that helps and most importantly, ENJOY YOUR FLIGHT.

Yeah, I was flew into the first class twice on their way from DFW-SFO, FLL-ATL, too. It is very good for me flying into the first class. I'm done everything that I got ate with pasta w/chicken. It is very good snacks for me.

I agree with the above comments that DL domestic first is really nothing special.....a simple meal and very average accommodation.
As far as personal space, the DL 764 is very, very average - 6 abreast seating on a 767 (the first class seats are only 18.5 inches wide) and 39" pitch is just OK for an F class cabin. When flying DL, I too prefer domestic first class in their narrowbody aircraft over the 767s.
Take a look at www.seatguru.com for more information and seating suggestions.
The good news is that First is always better than coach!

Mat, as far as I'm concerned, the 767-300 First is better than the -400, unless the PTV matters to you . The seat pitch on the 'old' 767s is 41"-42" vs 39" on the -400, and without the PTV in the middle console (as the -400 requires) the center armrest is less obtrusive. You'll find it fun to try both but IMHO, newer is not necessarily better.

You should enjoy the 763F better than the 764F. I fly frequently between LAX and ATL and have always avoided the 764 after a couple of awful flights. (cramped space/poor seat pitch) I try to book only BizElite (which, fortunately, is easy on my route).

It was about a year and a half ago, but I did the ATL-BOS route on a 764 first class. Having never done first class before I can tell you I thought it was great. The plane seemed quite new - the leg room was quite long, and the seat width was definitely much wider than coach class. I think that BOS is the originating point for an international flight through Atlanta. But given the circumstances around that flight I never got around to checking on any of it.
I thought it was quite nice, really, for a domestic trip.

This weekend I flew domestic first on Delta from ALT-LAS on a 738. On my return trip I was in domestic first on a Delta 764 from LAS-ATL. In my honest opinion the first class product(comfort and service) was far better on the 737-800.
