Delta PSU Replacement Schedule

Mon Oct 23, 2006 4:18 am

Does anyone know the timetable for when the PSU's are being replaced with the newer bulbs and signage? It seems most have been changed out when they install the leather seats, but I was on a 757 a week ago and it had leather seats with the old brown PSU. Anyone know the schedule/timetable for when these will be replaced?

Can you tell me what a PSU is?

Passenger Service Unit

It is the 'thing' above each passenger which usually contains air vents, F/A call button, reading lights, oxygen masks, fasten seatbelt/no smoking signs, etc.

The mod is a two-part mod. The basic mod covers the seating and signage. Some aircraft have gotten the second part of the mod covering the new gray PSUs and the fluorescent white signage. Many of the MD-88s still don't have the new PSUs yet. Was the 757 you flown on an ex-Song 757? The Song mods did not include PSU updates. Eventually, the MD-88s with the black PSUs and the 757s with the brown PSUs will get the update.

I wonder if there will be any updates on the newer 757s with the white PSUs? The white PSUs on those 757s are the 737NG-style, which are more modern than those with the brown PSUs.
