DL 737-800 Or 727-200 First Class?

Sun Jul 14, 2002 12:50 pm

Hello,
I plan on going to Florida in eary 2003 to visit my relatives. I have checked the 'discount' airlines and they have offered me to pay double of what I could pay to fly on one of the 'majors'. So any, I have been pondering the idea of flying first class? Is it possible to fly first class only one way, and then coach on the way back? Anyway, I fly out of ROC or SYR, and I was wondering when Delta would be getting rid of their 727's? If they are not gone by the time I go, is their first class comfortable, or should I wait another year for the 738's or whatever they replace the 727 in ROC, SYR with? Thankyou, and looking foward to your responses.

P.S.- Is it even worth flying first class. I would be on a 727 in first, and in business in a 777.

Fly the 727!

They won't be around much longer.

And yes it's possible to fly one way in first class and the other way in coach. Have fun in Florida!

I think the 738 FC seats are more comfortable than the 727 FC. Business is definately worth it, especially if you can get one of those $40 upgrades.

The 738 has video, but I think the 727 seats are more comfortable. You have plenty of chances to fly Jetblue......Fly on the 727 before it's gone.
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

jetBlue is good and all, but the 727 will be gone by next march-april. NW is getting rid of theirs by sept of next year.

JBLUA320,
Your fares were almost double of Delta's! They were last yeat too! Sorry but in my book, that isn't a discount airline. I will probably fly you guys frequently if I go to college in New York. (your fares aren't bad on that route)
