If I am correct, I think the regular 767-300's have a domestic configuation with only a 2 class layout and all of the 767-300ER's are ment for International service os they will have a 3 class layout. I could be wrong.
767's are common with Delta on many domestic routes out of ATL, CVG, and JFK.

i really wouldn't know, but judging how Delta uses their 767s on a ton of domestic flights, I am sure a lot of them only operate trans-atlantics as a sub if another 767 is having mechanical problems or is delayed etc.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

Flpuck6- there may be more BizElite seats, but there are 40-46 more seats on the plane in domestic config- firstclass/coach- then with BizElite. Also, they don't charge the same price for the domestic BizElite as they do on the international flights- about 8000 for a international flight, domestic is the same price as first... about 2000 on certain routes like LAX-JFK.
763 domestic config. seats 252 passengers
763ER international config. seats 206 or 212 passengers
The diff. is of course made up in coach, which is good on the high density routes these planes usualy fly- in a way, it is sorta like the argument as to why Delta does not have BusinessElite on their 764s.. they can seat more with a domestic config, and actually get more money from it.

The regular -300's, and a few ER's are used for domestic ops, and are configured with domestic first class. Those hold 252 passengers. Most of the -ER's are equipped with Business Elite, and quite alot of Business Elite seats, so they hold about 206 passengers. Those all fly the transatlantic routes.

Yes, the ERs (with BizElite) are used on some domestic runs (more since 9/11 reduced transatlantic capacity). They are primarily used on transcons but also on some specific flights between markets you normally would not expect an ER (e.g., SAN-CVG, or PDX-ATL). The best way I found to tell whether you will be riding on an ER or the regular domestic 763 is by the flight number ranges:
Flight #s from DL 10 through DL 180, and DL1980 through DL1999, if they are 763s they are all ERs (e.g., DL179 JFK-SLC, or DL1983 CVG-PDX, DL167 CVG-PDX).
