I have a question on DL 763 equipments. Have they been converted to Biz Elite seats yet? I'm flying ATL-LAS on Friday and wonder if they have these new seats. If not, are the seats comfortable?

Thanks,
Tony

All 763 non-ER have domestic first class seats. BizElite-branded seats are reserved for international aircraft.

Thank you for the response.

How come sometime when I search flights on Delta.com I see some 767s shown as Business and not First?

I'm not a reservations expert, but I can tell you that as stated above the 763ER have Business Elite and the 76P or 76S are Domestic First Class. From time to time you will see a scheduled domestic flight on a 763ER which only has the Business Elite. I have mostly seen these flights as JFK-ATL or ATL-MCO or other Florida destinations. An ER is certainly a treat to fly on a light weight domestic leg with all of that excess power compared to the 76P.

Some domestic flights are continuations of international segments to/fr the gateway, and are shown as business class, when in reality, the seats are domestic first class. Look at the seat map.....if it's 24F, it's domestic.

DL non-763s are just the regular configuration. They aren't business elite but the seats are comfortable enough and from ATL there will probably be PTVs installed on the a/c. You never can tell, but DL tends to focus the upgraded domestic 763s from ATL (I've flown on them several times in the last few months from LAX-ATL-LAX.) The only major downside to these seats are the legroom which is tight for F class. The service I'm sure will make up for it.

All of the non-ER 763s have nose-to-tail AVOD PTVs installed...

There is no live tv like the delta song planes, correct? Just regular movie/tv shows/music on demand?

All domestic-designated birds (i.e., 28 737-800s (73H), 48 757-200 (ex-Song), and all non-ER 763) have the Live TV option.

All international-designated birds (i.e., all 17 ex-AA/TW 757-200s, all 777s, 763ERs, 764ERs) have the canned TV episodes instead of Live TV (of course on the 763ER, it's only in Business)

So even if you happen to fly on a domestic flight but on an international aircraft (e.g., DL uses the ex-AA/TW 752s quite regularly on some JFK transcons), you will get the canned TV shows/episodes.

Other small differences between the domestic and international AVOD PTV program selections: the international ones have Hindi, Arabic, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese movies (and sometimes some European language ones as well) while the domestic ones only have English-language movies (so you end up with more "American" movies on domestic ones, e.g., for April, "Twilight" and "Valkyrie" are on domestic, but not on international).
Also, the HBO selection is expanded for domestic flights (e.g., more episodes of shows) versus the International selection, etc.

Thank you all for the replying. I think the live tv will make my trip much more enjoyable.

On a second note, does DL plan to upgrade the F seats on the non
