I just saw an ad for Delta's lie-flat Business Elite seats. It said that you can find them on flights to London, Dubai, Johannesburg, and Sydney for now. So I was wondering what other routes are the 77L exclusively on, or are they just exclusive to SYD, DXB, and JNB? For example, I see that ATL-NRT today is a 77L but perhaps this is not used everyday.
Also is LHR an exclusively 767-400 station (the 764 subfleet with lie-flat seats to be exact)?

Quoting DTWPurserBoy (Reply 3): The first two 747-400's have been sent for interior mods already--rumor says they will do two per month.
Are you sure about this? The press release they made at the beginning of the month said they weren't going to start until Summer 2011. I would be very surprised if the plans changed in such a short amount of time that they are already starting mods, unless this is something other than the seat mod.
10. Los Angeles-Sydney: 6,507 (United, Qantas, Delta, V Australia)
Chicago-Hong Kong should be on there for United, its around 6700-6800 nautical miles. It was the world's longest nonstop flight from the mid-90's up until CO started Newark-Hong Kong I believe.
*Looks like compensateme beat me to it, sorry.
One more thing to add: LAX-BKK on TG A345, its well over 7000 nm.
Quoting Dl767captain (Reply 4): Where does delta use the 772ER? Hopefully the 763 will start the upgrade cycle soon to keep the LHR market strictly lie flat
This is off the top of my head so probably some errors but here goes:
ATL-TLV (can't remember but might be 77L's on some days)
DTW-PVG (also think it might be 77L's some days)
Soon to be DTW-NGO once DL starts LAX/DTW-HND with the 744's. I guess the 772ER will continue to MNL still (or is it HNL the 744's continue to?).
Also ATL-FRA operated as a 772ER during much of the summer (don't know when it started and ended on that route), its back to a 764 now.
