I'm guessing that the next to go into mods will be either ship #171 (N171DN), which arrived in ATL over 24 hours ago, and according to FlightAware hasn't flown since; or ship #1707 (N177DZ) which flies from PDX-NRT on Nov 14th, arriving on Nov 15th.

Quoting n515cr (Reply 3):
N154DL may be an outlier

What is reason it may get deferred?

My guess is perhaps this particular a/c is schedule for an HMV a bit later this (northern) winter, after the 1st of the year, and they may as well do the winglets at the same time?

Still very impressive that by even before this winter is half over, more than 91% of their 767 fleet will have been brought up to a really comfortable configuration.

N154DL was the first 76G to be refurbished back in March-May 2013, and I guess the plan to have winglets done at the same time as the cabin mods was not in place back then. Hence, this ship has only received the cabin mods so far.

There should be no more old-configuration 763ERs flying around by the second or third week of December...all will either have been completed or in mods. The last four will be coming out of mods during January 2014.

It looks like 1502 (N152DL) might be the next one in for mods. It is currently flying ATL-PDX, then scheduled to fly to NRT.

With a ferry flight # like that, I'd bet you're right. It just landed in ANC, so we may know fairly quickly...will keep an eye on it.

Edit: heading to KIX next on the same flight #.


I also suspect that N175DN will be exiting on/around 25 Nov.

Re winglets, anyone know what the schedule is for the 7 aircraft that received interior mods but didn't get winglets?

Yes. It was moved to the scrap list approx 8 weeks ago. Sadly, the process has already begun.

Well despite ship #175 (N175DN) having been in mods for one week longer, ship #181 (N181DN) has completed mods first and is scheduled to fly NRT-PDX tomorrow. It looks like ship #179 will be the next to go to QPG as it is flying ATL-PDX and presumably PDX-NRT tomorrow.

It looks like 179 has been doing some flying under the radar for the past few days. Either that or I can't read flightaware properly.
Interestingly large a/c for ATL/PDX on Thanksgiving day.

Well ship #179 has to get to PDX in order to fly to NRT and then on to QPG! The seat map on delta.com actually shows about 50% of the seats are booked already to PDX, including 18/30 in First, which is more than the normally scheduled B738 can take!

Nice holiday surprise for all - especially Medallion upgraders. I forgot that Thanksgiving day flights do often fill up. It's been a very long time since I flew at Thanksgiving time.

It looks like N153DL may be heading to mods on Thursday, Dec 5. Flightaware shows it sitting in ATL, and the seat maps for DL1067 (ATL-PDX) and DL209 (PDX-NRT) on Dec 5 show the 76G configuration.

Ship #1501 (N1501P) has completed mods and is flying from NRT-PDX on Dec 5th and then presumably PDX-ATL on Dec 6th. Still no update on ship #175 (N175DN), which has been in mods for eleven more days than ship #1501; perhaps it has winglets being installed also.

Ship 175 already has winglets. Ship 1501, being an ex-Gulf 763 didn't have winglets before the mods.

Actually it's the other remaining non-modded ship #1521 (N394DL) which is operating this flight, and is scheduled to operate PDX-NRT later tomorrow. Presumably it will then fly to QPG for mods. So after Dec 6th, ship #1503 (N153DL) will be the last remaining non-modded DL B763ER to still be flying for another week or two!

Anyone know why the difference in Biz class seats from 35 to 25 on some aircraft??? I could understand if it was just the ex-Gulf Air 1500s as they have a 2L boarding door, but why on earth are they doing that on some of the -332ERs like 180-181 and 187-199. Seems odd. Wouldn't that cause a complete mess if an equip sub happens and you have to compensate for the loss of premium seating??

DL is simply being more flexible by having more aircraft with a smaller BusinessElite cabin to use on destinations with less premium traffic. DL felt the 76G fleet alone wasn't enough to cover those markets, so DL decided to decrease the size of the BusinessElite cabin on more aircraft to cover those markets.

Some international routes just have a reduced premium seat demand, hence, a smaller BE cabin. Different horses for different courses.

Ship #175 n175DN) has finally finished mods after almost eight weeks, just as the penultimate ship #1521 (N394DL) flies to QPG, leaving just ship #1503 (N153DL) as the last non-modded one to be currently flying.

The Lone Wolf looks like it will be flying roundtrips ATL-SEA-ATL from Fri, 12/20- Fri, 12/27. Last chance to get no Avod in Y. The configuration is 30J/184Y and shows as a 767 on Travelnet as opposed to 763 for domestic.

Total complete now (30Dec) should be 55 of 58 with ships 179/1521 in mods and 1503 possibly going there. N153DL did a charter from MSP to FRA-Hahn early today. Supposedly all of the A330 conversions will be completed by May 2014.

According to DeltaNet the last modified 763ER entered revenue service on Sunday so all a/c should be complete. All international widebodies will be complete in May when the A330s are complete.

N153DL has been flyjng ATL-SEA RT for the past week in an old configuration, so not exactly a true statement on the DeltaNet. The aircraft still shows in Germany from 30Dec, but perhaps on the way to QPG and maybe out of revenue service. The w&b charts show 3 aircraft w/o flatbeds and they are not updated until the mods are complete.
