The A330 is off the timetable in January at JFK did they change that route or take it out of JFK altogether?

The A330 will be off JFK starting next month (September) already. JFK-FCO-JFK (the only route currently being operated by the A333) will be operated by a DL 764ER instead.

But only for the winter season, its scheduled as of right now to return to JFK come next summer.

Why the switch? Is the seating capacity much different on DL?

They probably needed them elsewhere and the 764's are better suited for travel to Europe.

A333: 298 seats
764ER: 241 seats (similar to the A332 with 243 seats)
763ER: 216 seats (JFK-FCO will go back to the 763ER in the winter)

A330-300s are great aircraft for the FCO market in summer - light on front cabin seats, heavy in the back (34C/264Y). Given that FCO has a lot of tourist traffic during the summer and not much demand up front, the A333 really lets them haul people over there in better numbers than anything (including the 777s) in the legacy Delta fleet.

Some of the A330s are going to heavy mx over the winter, and look for them on the Carribean routes also. During the summer, ATL -- FCO also had an A330 for the second daily flight.

I think we will see a return of hte A330 come spring/heavy traffic out of JFK.

Can I have a mojito on this flight?

Just think about the other big airline operators across the pond, Continental Airlines and US Airways. You see them sending over just about everything they have during the summer, and then in the winter, you find their 767s, 777s, and A330s all over the Caribbean...

you, apparently, have never flown on the A330s  Wink The NW/DL 330s are great for Europe trips.

I have and I agree totaly. They are in fact vastly superior to the 764's of DL.

huh? how? The 76C (764 with old C seats) are about the same. The 76D (764 with lie-flats) may be the best planes in the fleet. The 333 maybe a little bit better than the 76C in C but in Y I'd take the 767 with 2-3-2 anyday of the week.



yep.

The A333 interior IMO pales in comparison to the Boeing Signature Interior of the 764ER. The Boeing Signature Interior IMO looks much nicer and has more overhead storage capacity with the pivot bins.

298 seats is what US has on their A333s. The pitch is awful!!! Does the DL/NW A333 differ much?

I love the DLA330...those planes look good in DL colors...wish jetBlue can get a few A330s lolz..I guess I wont see DLA330s for a while @JFK.  Sad..I'll miss those birds for a little while.


Bring JetBlue To Mexico City! (TLC and/or MEX would be great)
