I was looking over some Delta schedules in November and noticed different seat counts than normal for the domestic 738's. I figured this is most likely due to the reconfiguration of these two aircrafts this fall.
One thing I noticed is that some 738's are labeled as 73H's. I am assuming these 738's have slimline seats as well as PTV's, correct? The configuration is 16F and 144Y compared to the current 16F and 134Y.
We all know the reconfigured 757's are 26F and 158Y compared to 24F and 159Y.
Does anyone know what the 763's will be reconfigured out to be?
Thanks for the help with me trying to identify which Delta planes I should fly on!
The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...
The first domestic 767-300 won't go in for the mods until late November/early December, so they are probably not yet loaded into the schedules. They will feature 12 more seats than what they currently feature.

Correct - if you see a 73H with 160 seat capacity, that's an aircraft with a refurbished 737-800 cabin. N3744F, the first with winglets and new slimline seats (which, by the way, are sure to be a hit with passengers) is still in Atlanta getting the last minute finishing touches before being returned to service. I saw the new cabin yesterday - and boy, it looks GREAT (no, I don't have any pictures - I want it to be a surprise).
So is that "H" designation an industry-wide notation, or just for DL (and AS)? I know the 737-700 is know as the 73G because calling it 737 (as in 737-700, like 738 is 737-800) refers to any 737 type. Technically, could the 737-400 be called both the 734 and 73D if an airline were to have different configurations of this type of aircraft?

It looks like JFK-LAX will also be getting them soon -- for example, flight 407 on Dec 1. I doubt that's the first flight on that route, it just happens to be the one I noticed last night when poking around looking for flights to LAX.
delta.com lists the equipment as '737' instead of '737-800', which is what caught my eye and made me look at the seatmap.
It flew at an altitude of six feet for a distance of four and a half feet. Then we discovered rain makes it catch fire.
