I just booked a trip for Oct. to S. Carolina on DL, and last leg DTW-PDX operates with a 73H. What series is that? 700? I didn't know DL flew them. Are they a new type for DL? Any info appreciated.

A 73H is an internal Delta code. It is a 738 with nose-to-tail AVOD.

Delta does have 10 737-700 aircraft that are mainly used on routes that have an airport with a shorter runway. They are used at SNA and I believe TGU. They've had the 73G for a few yeras.

73H is the official IATA designator for a 737-800 fitted with winglets.

I once flew ATL-MEX on a 737-700W. Quite new. It was a weekend. Not sure if one of the daily frequencies to MEX is a 73G always, or if that day it was an equipment substitution... usually MEX gets 738s from ATL.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

I forgot about that. None-the-less, to distinguish between AVOD equiped 738s and non-AVOD, they use the code 73H for those with AVOD as all their 737s have winglets now.

Yep, the 73H is the 737-800 with winglets. While a lot of their 73Ys do have winglets (I guess thus making them 73Hs technically), if it specifically says "with winglets" then it will have AVOD in both cabins at every seat, including Delta on Demand, live TV, games, etc. All of the 738s are also equipped with the Aircell internet system.

I was just on one of these yesterday from SEA to JFK. It was my 4th 73H this year and my 5th 738 overall. They're great planes and there's enough to keep you busy for a while.

Enjoy your trip!

Where are you arriving in SC? MD-88s to CAE/CHS and ASA CRJs in GSP abound here. And the occasional D95 into CHS.

All Delta 737s are equiped with winglets. The last 738 rolled out from mods several months ago.

How many more 73Hs need to have AVOD installed?

28 of 71 have them. AFAIK, there are no plans currently to roll out AVOD to the rest of the 73H fleet.

Actually, 30 of 73 have them, since DL recently received N3772H and N3773D with them installed.

Not necessarily. Not all 737-800s are equipped with AVOD. Most of the 738s still have the overhead screens.
