As we approach the summer travel season, is there any update on the status of DL's upgrades to their 767-300ER equipment? How many of the enhanced birds are flying, and are they already assigned to particular routes?
The IGW 767-300ER's (76T). Ships 1607 to 1613 have nose to tail AVOD. I'd have to dig up the news release by DL to get the exact timeline and schedule but I seem to remember the refurbishments and reconfigurations for the 767-300ER's will be some of the last started and the last finished, given the relative size of the fleet compared to the other longhaul fleet types.
The 76T's, those ships currently with AVOD, are typically used exclusively on those routes with 12:00+ blocktimes. JFK-TLV (soon to switch to 744), JFK-CAI, JFK-AMM. This summer, JFK-ACC will see a 76T despite not quite being north of 12 hours.
