The 737-800s and domestic 767-300s are slated to get new slimmer seats to increase capacity by 10. I would expect that Delta will install PTVs along with the new seats at the same time. The current seats on the domestic 767-300s (except on the few leased P&W-powered aircraft) are too short to feature PTVs:
However, I believe that about half of the domestic 767-300 fleet and a little more than half of the 737-800 fleet has the leather seat covers. Is Delta still doing the leather seat updates on those aircraft? It wouldn't make sense for Delta to continue updating the existing seats on those aircraft to leather, as they are slated to get new slimline seats. I hope the new seats are the Recaro CL3610, although the CL3510 is also pretty good. I also wonder if the new slimline seats will become the standard for the 737-700s and 777-200LRs. Also, are there any plans to update the domestic first class seats on the 737-800s and domestic 767-300s? On the 737-800s, with the exception of the ex-Shuttle aircraft, the first class seats feature legrests.

I have never seen a domestic 767-300 with the leather interior.

I wonder what DL is thinking...are new seats coming for the 737 and 767? Is a 787 order on the table? I wish we had some insider info!!!

just booked a flight from CDG to JFK with DL on a 763. Because it is international flight, will it have PTVs?
|Quoting TristarCrazy (Reply 14):|
I think we all know it's not a question of will they order but more like when. The 788 has to be the replacement for the 763 and believe we will know "when" this year. I just hope there are some 783's in the mix for domestic operations. Hope we don't see the day of no DL widebody domestic flights.
