Delta JFK-LAXandSFO-JFK

Wed Mar 08, 2000 7:23 am

Awhile back there was a discussion about UAL's service between JFK and SFO/LAX. I'm going to be flying Delta's 763 nonstops on these routes and was wondering if anyone has experianced their service. How is it? The routes from NYC(JFK/EWR) to LAX/SFO are dominated by UAL, AA, and CO, and also flown several times daily by DL and TWA-------i know that i'm not counting Tower. If anyone has any service comparisons between the airlines that would be interesing too even though I'll be on DL.

You will most likely be on a new 767-300ER, configured for international routes out of JFK. This includes the new Business Elite setup in the front of the aircraft as well as the 777-like coach seats. There are 48 Business Class seats (2-2-2) and 143 Coach Seats (2-3-2). The service in Business Elite is good on long flights, which I believe LAX-JFK is around 5 hours. Delta has introduced a new menu in both Coach and BizElite and the food is very good on most flights, but sometimes you get something that isn't so good.

There is a good chance you might be upgraded to the 777-200 on these routes as well. Delta has been switching a lot of flights out of JFK to the 777 since there is a shortage of 767-300s.

The flights out of LAX are operated with the European 767-300ER (except the red-eye, which is a 757 --- avoid this flight). The European 767's are great and the service is excellent in Business Elite. The coach seats are 2-3-2 and the service is what you would get on any coach flight operated by UA,AA,DL, etc.. nothing exceptional.
