Delta 767s - International Configuration?

Fri Feb 17, 2006 6:16 am

Can anyone tell me in what config the international DL 763s are operated? It was C47Y148 (or similar) some time ago; is it still this way?

What will the config of the 764s be on intl flights?

Nobody knows that currently. I have heard though that the 767-400ERs will be the first aircraft to have the new BusinessElite product.

Currently, the layout is C36Y168, with the exception of the ex-Gulf Air planes, which have a C30Y175 layout. With the new improvements for BizE on the horizon, those numbers could change, though.

Don't know any exact numbers, but given the BizE:Economy seat ratio, it should probably be something like C42Y203. Not that this is just speculation on my part, by I think it could be pretty close to the truth.

I havn't heard about this...but that would definitely be an interesting concept. I know that there is speculation that the new BizElite seats would not be lay-flat seats. Does anyone have anymore information on what the seats will be like?

Last year they did a bunch of concept surveys on a thrre cabin configuration. I got one of them. I can't remember that exact specifics, but most of the questions talked about the types of seats in each cabin, including the materials (leather vs. cloth), pitch, as well as the entertainment choice and food service. If I recall correctly, the first compartment was for fll-cost business class, the second cabin was for upgrades, and then there was coach.

Just to add to that, even though the configuration is 36C168Y on the regular 763ERs, usually on transatlantic flights with crew rest, only 36C and 163Y seats are available for sale; with non-FA-rest flights, 36C and 167Y seats are available for sale.

The new configuration for the regular DL 763ERs (after they remove the current crew rest row, row 15) should be 35C and 174Y. The pilot rest seat will be one of the 36 regular BE seats so only 35 will be available for sale. The poor FAs will be relegated to regular Y seats (no extra legroom, legrests, etc.) a the back of the a/c for their rest seats (total of 4 rest seats).
