Got a chance to fly on one of Delta's 763s with the new slimline seats this past Saturday ATL - TPA ... very nice. The only thing is the PTV's were having a problem getting a satellite signal.

Someone had mentioned before the way to tell if you are in a newly configured 763 is to look for a row 21 in the seat map. I am scheduled to fly ATL - SEA March 31 and back on April 3. Both flights are 763s without row 21 in the map so looks like the new interior is not likely. Is this this generally set in stone? or is there a chance that I might be on one with the new interior? The PTVs would be nice for the long flights. Had a choice between the 752 with PTVs or a 763 without, and still opted for the 763 as it is more comfortable for longer flights.

Actually, the new configuration features complete rows 25 and 26, while on the old configuration, they are split by a galley. Seats 26A and 26G have also been added.

Looks like the flights I am on have incomplete rows for Rows 25 and 26, so definitely the old configuration...unless there is an equipment sub. Kind of funny...would have expected to see the new configuration 763 on a longer route like ATL-SEA than I would on ATL-TPA.

H'mm.

Came back from SEA -> ATL DL 1740 12 Mar on ship 139 -- first of the refitted domestic 767-300's. Seats are nice (I was up front) but -----
The reading light control is integrated into the PTV control, and that portion of the sub-system failed. This was a red-eye, and there were NO reading lights at all -- throughout the whole aircraft. For those that wanted to read, or even eat/drink, it was difficult, and the flight attendants had to do their service in darkness. Could NOT see what was in the sandwich! The gentleman seated beside me dropped his reading glasses, and we ended up having a scavenger hunt by flashlight!
This was very frustrating for all involved, and even with many "resets" of the system, the issue could not be resolved. Flight was totally full, except for about 4 seats, and the cabin crew had to put up with quite a bit of grumbling.
Have these systems gone too far, especially when it come to the basic comfort controls?



I love to fly, and it shows!

Has DL removed rear galley structure and ovens when refurbishing, now that hot meals are gone?


Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

I haven't been on one of the refurbed 767 but I doubt the rear galley ovens were removed. The 738 that have been done over still have them. The 767 is used for sports charters which do serve hot food.
