I'm Gonna Be On The CDG-SLC Inaugural!

Just got my flight confirmation for my upcoming trip to the US.... and I am booked on the CDG-SLC inaugural on 06/02!  Smile
It's actually going to be the very first flight on this route, as the same plane is going to make a turn in SLC and to do the SLC-CDG inaugural the same day (i.e. CDG-SLC is first flown before SLC-CDG is first flown).

So can we expect any special welcome in SLC? Will DL use a 763ER in new colors and maybe with the new interior for that flight?

Great !! Don't forget to write a TR for us.
I looked at the fares of this flight for june and prices were astonishing on several dates. So I assume the loads should be pretty good already.

This flight will do well. While in Alta (just south and east of SLC) this March Skiing it up, I realized everyone was speaking French. Will the flight run throughout the winter as well? Good Market.

As I will be on vacation in Arizona / Utah soon, this might be the ideal way to travel back to Europe. Any of the DL-folks around here check the loads SLC-CDG on June 9 and 10 for non-reving? It looks rather light to me, but I don´t have full access.

Thanks and best regards,

Sebastian

maybe with the new interior for that flight?

It should be - pretty much all of the regular DL (non-ex-GF) 763ERs have been converted to the new interior.

Where does that difference in total Y seats come from? 181 vs. 175?

Are you sure? There is no DL 763ER that has 175 seats in the back for sale. My guess is the 6 seats are part of the weight restrictions needed due to SLC's altitude, etc.

Most airlines hold 6 seats for crew rest (F/A's). At Continental, the rule was any flight over 8 hours required 6 seats to be held in back and 1 in BusinessFirst for the IRO. Since DL's 767's don't have crew rest compartments, my guess is the crew rest seats are just held back from the booking totals.

Are you sure they weren't French Canadiens?

CDG-SLC will be longer by an hour or so is my guess, so while your logic is very very sound I think it would be applicable to the reverse route if not to both.

I would go with the necessary restrictions operating out of SLC.

Actually, there are specific crew (pilot and FA) rest seats on the 763ER that aren't part of the regular 35/181 count. The regular DL 763ER actually has 36 J and 181 Y seats, together with 4 FA crew rest seats that are in the J cabin right behind seats 6A,B. The pilot rest seat is in the J cabin (seat 6C) thus limiting the number of J seats for sale to 35. There are a full 181 Y seats in the main Y cabin (behind the mesh curtain). The 4 FA crew rest seats are physically situated in the J cabin and are never counted as part of the overall seat count.
