Question On Delta Aircraft With Refurb Interior

Thu Jun 22, 2006 9:34 pm

I have recently asked what are the chances of me getting on a 767-300 with the refurbished interior, and I have heard that the chances are good.

Last time I heard, more than half of the MD-88s, MD-90s, and 757s have the refurbished interior. Also, some domestic 767-300s have the refurbished interior, as I asked that previously. More recently, some 737-800s now have the refurbished interior. I have heard that some ex-Shuttle 737-800s have got the refurbished interior and have first class added back in.

Now, Delta has redid the BusinessElite seats on four 767-300ERs. Did they also put the new signage and leather seat covers in economy class?

Also, do any domestic 767-400ERs have the refurbished interior yet?

764's not yet on the refurbished interiors. Have not been on a 763 international in a while so cannot tell you about that.

We traveled on DL to Brazil in December 2005. RIC-ATL-RIC were on refurbished MD-88s with the newly covered blue leather seats. The lavatories had the "wood look" vinyl floors. The interior panels in the cabin were clean and bright and the storage bins seemed easier to use. Seats had almost non-existent recline. The leather covered seats seem slippery, but are probably easier to clean.

The ATL-GRU-ATL flights were on 767-300s with the "current" interiors. They were clean aircraft and did not notice anything broken. The entertainment system was dated, but functional. There were small walkman-style earpiece headsets that slipped over the ears and plugged into the seat arms with wires. Pillows and blankets were provided. Seats were cloth. Service was very good. You'd never know DL was in a bankruptcy based on service level or aircraft interior condition. I think all U.S. carriers are behind on updating interiors and adding personal entertainment in seat backs.

BusElite cabins on the 767s we flew on looked the same as when we travelled in 2001. Did not spend much time there, just passing through to Y.  Smile

The refurbishing on the domestic 767-300s began early this year I believe. The refurbishing on the 737-800s began around March-April. Delta has done the new BusinessElite seats on four 767-300ERs this month, I am not sure if the economy cabin has been done.

Quoting FutureFO (Reply 1):

The 763ER with the new interior are the a/c with ship #'s 1701-1704

They did the whole plane with the new leather seats and new sinage.

I wish someone would have photos of the MD-90, 767-300, and 767-300ER with the refurbished interiors to show me. I have seen photos online of the MD-88 and 737-800 with them, and I have flown on a 757 with it.

Also, are ships 1701-1704 ex-domestic aircraft?
