|Quoting EI A330-200 (Thread starter):|
DL 1181 LAX-SLC - 757-2 class. Any type of service? What about comfort?
DL 1166 SLC-CLE - MD-90. Any meal service? I'm in an exit row seat, so what about comfort?
DL 459 CLE-ATL - MD-88. How comfortable are these planes? Again in an exit row, hows the comfort?
DL 187 ATL-LAX - 763. Is it true that there are only projectors in this aircraft? What about meal service? I'll have connected from the CLE-ATL flight, so I'll be hungry at this point.
DL1181, a 757, is only a 589 mile flight. You'll get a drink, and your choice of snack from DL
's snack tray : Biscoff cookies, Peanuts, Granola Bar, or the Lance cheese/crackers. 757 comfort is average for US coach, unless you get an exit row or row 19. Row 19 is ideal : its the first row behind door 2R
, and as such you have about 12 feet of legroom between yourself and the bulkhead behind the First Class section. DL
's 757s have only the CRT screens in the center of the aisle, down the length of the plane. With the shortness of this flight, you'll only get TV
shows to watch.
If you are REALLY lucky, you'll get an equipment substitution on this flight and get to fly on a Song 757, which has in-seat IFE !
1166, on the MD90, is a 3:40 flight (some 1559 miles). You will not get a meal unless you are in First Class (and the flight bridges a mealtime). In coach, you will likely get a couple of drink services + a snack "Brick", which is actually pretty good - crackers, spreadable cheese, trail mix packet, biscoff, etc. DL
's MD90 have dropdown LCD
screens throughout the plane, and you'll get a movie + various TV
shows to watch.
459, on the MD88, is a mere 2 hours, about 554 miles. You'll get a drink, and the selection from the snack tray. MD88 has no TV
Seat comfort on both the MD90 and MD88 will be fairly identical, especially in the exit row, as you get extra legroom. Try and get on the 2-seat side of the airplane (seats D and E), also.
187, on the 763, First Class will likely get a meal, and Coach will get a snack "Brick" + a couple of drink services. TV
on the 763 is the large projector screens (no center aisle CRTs, or dropdown LCDs).
Hope this helps ! (if you're flying DL
, and have a Skymiles account versus another skyteam airline, try and upgrade to First, if you have medallion status - even if you don't get food, the larger seat is well worth it)
Enjoy your trip on DL
- with this airline trying to re-invent itself, the staff has a great renewed vigor in their airline, and you should get a real nice dose of the Southern hospitality that's made Delta famous for years.
(and I'm just waiting for the anti-DL folks to start chiming in with their attacks)
