Delta 737-800

Thu Apr 29, 1999 2:57 am

Hi all, i'm scheduled to fly to Latin America on brand new 737-800. As soon as i found about abou this i searched throght the pictures at this site and found some that show the interior. I could not see any any screens.
Does that mean that they won't show any MOVIES??

It;s only a 3.5 hour flight, but i get bored easily!

I am NOT sure about this but i think they pop down like on the A320.

On Continental's 737-800s the TV screens pop down every few rows on either side of the aircraft, like on A320s. I'm sure Delta ordered their planes with the same feature especially since they are using them on international routes. I actually prefer it to the way most airlines configure their 757s with TV's in the aisles on 757s. As to 3.5 hours being enough for a movie to be shown, that is definitely enough. When I flew Continental's 737-800 I found it to be a very confertable plane and I especially liked the modern interior that all the new next generation 737s have. It is much nicer than previous 737s. I am sure you will have a nice flight.

i don't know about any interiors... but where in Latin America r u going to? I didn't know DAL was using their 738 internationally. I've only seen the 738 used on the MSY-ATL flights and a few other domestic ones.

I flew on Continental 737-800 from EWR to IAH a few weeks ago and the TV screens pop down every fourth row. Its really nice, especially since that flight is about 3 hrs. Delta has these screens as well. They fly 4 737-800's a day into my home base of GSP (Greenville-Spartanburg) from Atlanta. Before I flew on one of ours I boarded a Delta 737-800 when it was on a RON (overnight) to get a look at it. From what I remember it also had the slots where the screens are. Most airlines also use the screens for the pre-flight safety message freeing the flight-attendants up so that they can spend more time on their cross-checks.

I was on a 737-832 on a PHL-ATL leg about 2 weeks ago (N373DA). It does have the pop down screens.
