Delta ship 6818 (N624AG) went out for engine runs and system checks this afternoon. Everything operated flawlessly! Still have cabin items to finish, STC Conformity, Certificate of Airworthiness, Functional Check Flight and 121 Certification to go. Hope to see it EIS in mid-July.

Ship 6818 in the Delta TOC "runup hole" 6-24-2012.

I take it this is the DL post storage routine and refitting before bringing it back into service?

Yes, all part of preparing it to go into service. This aircraft is new to the fleet and has had four previous operators so a lot of work went into standardizing it to the other 6800 series aircraft.

Cabin is almost complete. All the monuments and seats are installed. Hope to see the cabin complete by June 27th.

See the previous thread in reply 5. N624AG (DL Ship 6818) Arrives In ATL (by B757forever Mar 7 2012 in Civil Aviation)

It essentially has been modified to be just like ships 6801-6817.

I think this is wonderful! Who care's how old the bird is. TechOps does such a wonderful job... so many 757's in our fleet that look like brand new aircraft from a cabin perspective.

it is somewhat of a novelty as it is another 757 being added to the largest 757 fleet in the world.

Isn't that the very definition of what isn't a novelty?

Good to see progress with this aircraft. I was over at the TOC a few weeks ago and walked past the bay that it was sitting in and couldn't resist taking a look inside. I had to stay outside as the floor was not installed, nor was the seats or side walls either. It was impressive and strange seeing it so naked.  But it did have a shinny new paint on the outside.

Will it get a water cannon salute as it departs on the first revenue flight? I guess this will be from ATL since that is where the HMV is taking place.

Thanks for the explanation. As you pointed out something that fascinates yourselves but doesn't snag my interest.
And revamping a 20 yr old aircraft to make it look new is interesting.

Just to ask, but will the interior really look EXACTLY like the ex-TWA aircraft? After all, N624AG has 1980s-style 757 PSUs, while the ex-TWA aircraft have the same style as the 737NG. Perhaps N624AG might get the aftermarket PSUs that many of the PMDL domestic 757s have, which are designed to fit in the existing cutouts of the 1980s-style PSUs. To install the 737NG-style PSUs, however, would require the panels under the bins to be replaced, since the cutouts are different.

Do you believe that "1980s-style"" PSU would negatively impact the travel experience? Or do you think things liked winged head rests, WiFi, power ports & UBS charging stations are more noticeable to travelers?

Delta has spent (and continues to spend) a huge amount of money in recent years to make its aircraft not "look old" anymore, from a passenger perspective. Those old PSUs definitely look old. Fatal problem? Hardly. Detracts from the rest of the cabin renovation? Absolutely. I hope they at least do install the ones used on the domestic PMDL 757s.

In fact, I heard DL recently started to install them on the PMNW 5500-series 752s alongside curved ceiling panels.

I don't know how many aircraft have been modded, however. The thread does state that 11 of them will be getting the mods, while the rest of the fleet will be replaced by the 739ER.

I would have to say the majority of the traveling public would not notice or care about PSU's.

If that were the case, then DL wouldn't have ever updated the PSUs on their fleet. DL wants their aircraft to look new, and PSUs that look like they were straight out of the 1980s badly clashes with DL's other interior mods. Other than the 757s, the MD-88s also got new PSUs.

The 763s (both domestic and international) initially got a partial PSU update, where the old reading lights were kept but the No Smoking/Fasten Seat Belt signs were changed to the cool fluorescent white, and the white air nozzles were replaced with light gray ones. However, the more recent full cabin mods (pivot bins, sidewalls, and ceiling panels) for the 763ERs include new more modern reading lights.

They will notice all right. But their reaction won't be "look, an old PSU." It will be "This airplane is old and must be unsafe," or, only slightly more fairly, "This airline has old crappy planes and the competition is better."

People don't know the technical details of what they're looking at, but they do know when something looks old.

It might be something DL wanted more so then average Joe. The average flyer does not know if it was a 767 or 747 let alone clear reading lights.

But the average Joe would prefer to fly an aircraft that looks new, rather than one that gives away its age. seabosdca is right on the money.
