Trip Info Needed: Delta SAN To FCO In DEC

Sun Sep 03, 2006 1:50 am

Hey fellow A.netters, I'm requesting some information regarding the aircraft that will be involved in our Christmas Vacation to Rome this December.

We will be doing SAN-ATL-FCO-JFK-SAN from Dec. 15th to Jan. 2nd.

Flights as follows:

Dec. 15th / SAN-ATL: Flight #1020 A/C:767-300

Dec. 15th-16th / ATL-FCO: Flight #0070 A/C: 767-200

Jan. 2nd / FCO-JFK: Flight #8150 A/C: 777-200

Jan. 2nd / JFK-SAN: Flight #1871 A/C: 737-800

Can anyone tell me the information on the aircraft involved, and also, are the -200 series still flying? The lastest pic from the database was on March 3rd, 2006. If so, what do you think they will use on the ATL-FCO route? A 763?

Thanks in advanced for the input guys/gals!

No. See below for more.

762 It is the designation they have given the ex-Gulf Air 763ER birds in the DL fleet. Only nerds like us on A.nut even know the difference. I'll be on one in a couple of weeks to Manchester. IIRC they have a smaller BizElite cabin (maybe 1 row less), a different exit door placement, and for some weird reason I swear they don't have air vents in the overheads.

Domestic 763 non-ER. Nothing fancy but it gets you where you need to go.

Alitalia 777. IIRC these do not have air vents either in the overhead.

Not a bad plane and they all should have the new leather interiors at this point.
