767-300 To OGG

Sun Jun 04, 2006 1:08 pm

Why is it that Detla flies 1 767-300 aircraft to OGG when all the other Hawaii routes are flown with 767-400. I know the runway is shorter in Maui but delta uses has 2 flights to OGG from ATL and the Morning flight uses a 767-300 and the afternoon flight goes out with a 767-400.

There could be a number of reasons including no 764s available for the run in the morning, the extra capacity may not be needed on the morning flight, etc. etc.

Just for the record, SLC-OGG is a 764. So is SLC-HNL, for that matter...

The second flight stops in LAX. That might be the reason for the larger plane and the first flight (at least tomorow) is sowing low booking.
The only valid opinions are those based in facts

Because the second flight, the 764 stops in LAX both ways, it does not need to carry as much fuel. Because it doesn't carry as much fuel it does not have as much restriction it weighs less and does not have as much restriction on the runway length. As such, it the 764 can do OGG-LAX, and then on to ATL. However, it cannot do OGG-ATL as there is not enough runway. However, the 763, being smaller and weighing less can do OGG-ATL, but sometimes it can be weight restricted.

Exactly, just a lack of runway that's the issue. And for those that might be confused, DL is using a 763ER, not the standard model.

Strange the morning flight which operates with the 763-ER operated the last couple of days with the 762. Hmmm

DL has retired its 762 fleet.

That's DL's new 3-letter coding for their 763ER fleet, to seperate them from the non-ERs.
767 now stands for regular 767-300ERs
762 stands for the ex-Gulf Air and the single ex-Asiana 767-300ERs
