Hi,
I have never flown Delta Air Lines, and would like to learn a little more about them. I have a few questions on the service, and quality of their aircrafts.

727-200: This is a very old aircraft, but does Delta have a nice interior? Good service? This would be flown from ROC - ATL. Is that to long to be on a Delta 727?

767-300: On another itenerary, this would be used from CVG-MCO. Is this a good plane? Service? Seat comfort?

Comair Canadair RJ: Are these good? Quiet? Is Comair a good airline? Comfortable?

777-200: This would be used from ATL-MCO. Does Delta have a good 777? Comfortable? Is it worth flying on just to hear those awesome englines, even for about an hour?

MD-80: This would be used from RSW - CVG. Comfortable? Good service?

Hears the thing. I am going to Florida to visit my Grandparents next year. I have been looking at Jetblue since they are supposed to be cheaper, and flew where I wanted to go. The thing is that I found two Delta flights comparable to Jetblue. What itenerary do you think I should fly?

1) ROC-CVG - Comair Candair RJ
CVG-MCO - Delta Boeing 767-300
RSW-CVG - Delta MD-80
CVG-ROC - Comair Canadair RJ

2) ROC-ATL - Delta 727-200
ATL-MCO - Delta 777
RSW-CVG - Delta MD-80
CVG-ROC - Comair Canadair RJ

3) ROC-JFK - Jetblue A320
JFK-MCO - Jetblue A230
RSW-JFK - Jetblue A320
JFK-ROC - Jetblue A320

Thanks for your input. And looking foward to your responses.

Yes, Comair is a great airline. Their CRJ's are quieter than most of DL's mainline jets. The inflight service is good. Biscoff Cookies, Peanuts, Pretzels, Cheese Crackers, and Creme Savers are served on most flights. They offer a full selection of beverages. The planes are clean, seats are comfortable. Have a great flight!

I would go with Iterary No. 2. Delta's 727 and MD-88 are both fine planes, and you should try and catch a ride on a DL 727 before they are retired. I have also heard DLs 777 is nice, although I have only flown BAs 777 (which is still a nice plane). I can't comment on Comair, as I have never flown them, but Itinerary 2 sounds best.

Could you tell me more about the interior of the Delta 727-200? Whats the color of the seats? Are they comfortable? Service good? Is it loud inside? Where is the best place to sit in one? (middle, front, back, certain seat?) Thanks.

I can't make a judgement by price yet, because Jetblue's prices aren't out yet for my dates, but they should be quite comparable.

It has been several years sence I have flown on Delta, but in general Delta has fine service, likewise Delta 727's are great airplanes, they do have a few years behind them, but from what I here those planes go can go and go, just keep on ticking. You can sit nearly anywhere in the cabin and there is equal comfort. The last time I flew on a Delta 727, the seats were red and blue mixed I believe. The MD-88 is also a fine plane, probably one of my favorites for that bird can really git up and go, sometimes you even pull a few "g" forces when takeoff power is applied. So, relax, Delta will serve you fine and you can feel confident that your travel experience will be an enjoyable one.
Have a great trip.

How would Delta compare to Jetblue?

Its not really fair to compare someone like Delta with a carrier like JetBlue who offers a premium product with PTVs throughout the aircraft.

I'll be flying a DL 764 and a 762 from MSY-TPA via ATL next week. Anything I should expect on these planes?

There are a lot of considerations in this. If you do not fly much at all go with jetblue. They have such a nice product. If you do a lot of flying check out the Frequent flier programs. If all you do is Upstate NY to florida, score jetblue, but if you like variety Delta is a major international carrier with several international partners and United airlines as a partner for domestic travel. If you're already a UA mileage plus member go with the atlanta leg outbound you get UA miles for DL mainline but not comair. I live in CVG. I love the convienience of Delta and Comair out of my city. I find their service on par with all major US carriers and have no problems reccommending them to anybody. On the other hand If you save $100 with jetblue go jetblue

Jessman is right on.

If you've never flown in an RJ, the VERY LOW windows can be disconcerting. It is, after all, a commuter plane. ROC-CVG I would say is about the limit of comfort.

Delta's 777s and 764s are very cramped in coach. I would avoid them, unless you can upgrade. 764s, in particular, have call buttons on the armrests (supposedly, this will be fixed); flights resemble carillon concerts sometimes. Entertainment control boxes fixed under the seats restrict legroom, too.

I personally prefer the MD80 and 763 in coach, but again it depends a lot on what seat you get.

All in all, I suspect you would find JetBlue the better experience. And I'm a Delta Gold Medallion!
