% Of Each Delta Aircraft Type With Leather Seats

Fri Oct 12, 2007 4:45 pm

Does anyone know what percentage of each of Delta's aircraft types have the leather seats. I know that all of the MD-88s and MD-90s are done. I have also heard that all the 757s are complete. Can anyone confirm this?

Last time I have heard that about 70% of the 767-300ERs are complete. For the domestic 767-300s, I have heard that updates for them have been rather slow, however, my last two flights on them both had the leather seat covers. I'd imagine that there are also quite a few 737-800s and domestic 767-400ERs that still have the cloth seats. Since the 737-800s and domestic 767-300s are slated to get the new slimline seats, it doesn't make sense to update the existing seats in leather. For the 767-400ERs, they will all eventually be converted to international configuration, so it somewhat doesn't make sense to update them either, particularly the domestic F seats. What did N3744F have before it got the new slimline seats?

Well, I travelled on four Delta flights last week, and all but one had the leather seats. My 764 (still in domestic config) had leather throughout. My 763 to SEA (domestic config) had the old interiors. My ex Song birds had the new, uncomfortable interiors. And my flight from JFK-SNN, had been given a put of an overhaul in the form of new seats covers, and carpets. I actually found the seats on the ER to be the most comfortable of all the seats I sampled, including the domestic first seat on the 764.

I don't believe all of the MD-90's are done yet.

I think they have been done a while ago. In fact I believe that they were finished before the MD-88s.
