DL Pulling 763 With BizE Seats On ATL - LAX Route?

Maybe someone here can answer this, but it seems (by my quick search for tickets on Delta.com) that DL is not going to have any 763's with Biz/E seats running the ATL - LAX route anymore.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but were they not running a couple flights on 772's with Biz/E seats from ATL - LAX at the start of 2004? Now they're cutting the 763's with Biz/E seats on that route too? Yikes...

Hmm... even more interesting is that it seems the 763's with Biz/E seats are being put into east coast flights (such as JFK - ATL and CVG - ATL)...

So does anyone know for sure what flights (routes) will have Biz/E seats domestically now?

Are you sure? These aircraft come and go. You might have them 3 quarters then 1 quarter they're gone. I've seen present schedules that show a 767-300 and every day it turns out to be a 400 or a 200 or 300ER.

Oops... should have said what dates I'm looking at...

I can book 763's with Biz/E seats in October... but I also needed a ticket in January... which doesn't show a single aircraft on the ATL - LAX route with the Biz/E config.

I've noticed too DL doesn't always seem consitant with BizElite widebodies on transcon routes to LAX or Vegas.

This is odd as dont many of these planes continue on to Hawaii and vise versa? Very Interesting to me.

No HNL/OGG see only 400s or domestic 300. These 300ER just turn around in LAX and hit either JFK/CVG/ATL and go back overseas.

I'd have a very hard time believing they would eliminate transcontinental BizElite service.

I'm booked in BizE in a 763 for Jan 7 & Jan 16 for Transcon JFK/LAX round trip.


Go Delta!

Sspontak,

Thanks for the info... but seeing as I live near FLL... catching a flight from FLL to JFK, then on to LAX is just a bit out of my way.

Probably your best bet is FLL/CVG/LAX. Do you think that could work?

Hmm... that might work... however, they seem to have cut the number of CVG - LAX flights with Biz/E seats down to 1 per day (departing CVG at 4:55PM I believe)... I suppose it's better than the 764  Smile

The 764 is still very nice. PTV's and footrests. I took both on a prior Hawaii trip. Of course the 763 BizE is great. The 764 is pretty good too.

You should try both. One in each direction.

I've flown 1st class on the 764 on some shorter trips (FLL to ATL)... and to be honest, at 6'4"... that domestic first class product is just a bit on the tight side for me.

They are flying the BizE 763's on 1 daily flight on the ATL - DFW - ATL route, then 2 flights daily after Feb '05.
