Although I have flown on DL's 764 fleet, I was eager to fly on one of the airline's newly reconfigured 767-300ER aircraft with flat-bed seating in BusinessElite. The airline has seven 767 aircraft that are designed for 12+ hour flights - coded the "76T." These aircraft are deployed on the longer 767 routes (e.g. PEKSEA), but they are also used on 767 routes with heavy premium demand. BRU and MAD have been regularly seeing these aircraft this summer, so I knew flying to BRU would guarantee my first experience with this fleet type.

The view from my seat prior to departure to BRU as DL 80.


Side angled view of the starboard side of the BusinessElite cabin. The new configuration has 36 seats in the front cabin in a 1x2x1 arrangement that allows for direct aisle access for every customer.


Looking forward in my seat with the hole for my feet.


Seat controls with the massaging function on the right side.


Gravlax appetizer was great, but the tomato basil soup was unfortunately not boarded (unintentionally).


Watching the Hangover II during the dinner service.








Pre-arrival breakfast including vanilla french toast. Tasty!


An overview of the BusinessElite cabin as we begin our descent into BRU aboard DL 80 from ATL. Love the 777-style overhead bins!


After a great weekend in BRU, it was time to return. I took more photos in the front cabin on the return flight, DL 81 to ATL.



The view from my seat. I enjoyed the "aisle" seat in the center section that offers more room for one's legs than the adjacent seat with less room in the sleeping position.


A clear view of the "aisle" arranged seat with more space for one's legs and feet.


Great soup and tasty shrimp appetizer.






As the photo shows, the chicken was a bit dry.


Ice cream sundae, as usual  

Pre-arrival meal was a chicken sandwich with pesto sauce. I thoroughly enjoyed it.


Flight details on the personal TV screen.




Hope you all enjoyed the report. Please send comments...

Now this Businesselite 1-2-1 is way better than any other airlines' 2-2-2 in my opinion. I value personal space and privacy so this is a great fit!

Thank you for posting your experience to Brussels!

Did you take any photos while you were in BRU?

Hope you had fun and again, thank you!

Hello

As an ex-regular on the BRU-ATL-BRU route it's nice to see something new on the route!
The new interiors and J class look much fresher than the 1500ships that are regulary deployed.

Greetings
Marc

Nice picture report. Thanks for posting.
I fly mostly American but believe it or not my last two TATL trips from JFK to BRU were on Delta. Once on the 757 and once on the 767. A year ago, when it was still a 757, I flew JFK-BRU and I got upgraded to Business Class so I got to experience the Business Class cabin on Delta. The seats were not fully lie flat but still very comfortable and the inflight service was decent. Then a few months later I flew the same route again on Delta but it was a 767. This time I was not upgraded but I still had a nice flight in Economy Class, the airplane had 777 style interiors. I know ATL-BRU-ATL is always a 767.

This retrofitted Boeing 767-300ER is absolutely looking much better, cleaner and fresher.
DELTA BizE TATL flights seem to provide such high standard products.
Thank you for sharing this.

Good trip report with pics! That is same J class seat as AY and LX have (Finnair, Swiss) with slight difference: leather seat instead of textile one and of course comparing A333 to B763 cabin width the layout in A333 is in first row 2x2x1, second row 1x2x1. Seat 2A, 4A, 6A are excellent ones for solo traveller with LX and AY.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but BRU is one of the few European cities where the "new" 767s are warranted ?

Correct, the 76Ts are the first seven aircraft in DL's 767-300ER fleet to have the new flat-beds, and they've been deployed on BRU (ATL and JFK) all summer.

Awesome trip report! Can't wait to get on one of the refurbed 763's. I did MSP-CDG last month and got similar meals, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I thought the wine selection was a nice step up from a few years ago as well. And that vanilla french toast.....YUM!


Good goes around!

Sadly, we(SEA-base) saw them for 1 month, and then they were gone. We're "supposed" to be 100% lie-flat to Asia starting 1Nov. We'll see if that happens.

Great report! Thank you for taking the time to write it!

Cabin looks brand new and very fresh, not sure about the netting on the seat pockets looks a little cheapish to me!

How are the PTVs sized they look a little small.

I think the food looks very good - making me hungry just looking at it! Although what is with that ugly ugly faux wood tray? Cheap and nasty, not sure on American style but looks like something you would see at a BBQ or picnic in Australia, not on in 5-star restaurant (I'm hoping DL is aim their meals at restaurant level, not picnics! haha).

Seems like DL is taking some big steps in the right direction, just need to tie down the details now!

Thanks again for the great pics!

Great to see a report on DL's post-mod 763ERs! Thanks so much for posting and for the awesome photos!

DL's hard J product looks to be extremely competitive. How was the service on board if you don't mind me asking?

We are on DL 80 on 15 October, hoping it's the new 767 layout but the seat map still shows old. The return on 31 October is through JFK on DL 141 and shows the new layout. Compare and contrast of both will be in order.

Thanks for the trip report. These seats do look to be up to the higher business class standards that are becoming normal worldwide. I am a bit surprised at how small the PTV is. It's tiny compared to UA's screens but far better than AA's lack of in-seat IFE on the 767s.

I wonder how the public is accept of DL's 4 very different international business class products depending on plane and route.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

The PTV size is decent. They're not particularly large but sufficient.

Service was on par with what I'd expect from DL. Sometimes, the crews are great while other times, they're mediocre. I just returned from AMS, and the purser and the F/A serving me in J were both outstanding. I complimented them on their care and attention to detail, and I hope to see them on some of my future flights!
