DL137 Tonight: Ship Number?

Wed Jun 24, 2009 2:03 pm

Hi,
I'll be on DL137 JFK-LAX tonight and was wondering if anybody knew the ship number of the 752 that will do this flight today. I need this information to figure out if there will be wifi  Smile
Thanks!

Can't give out ship numbers in advance, big no, no. I wouldn't expect wifi though. they are just starting to install it on the 757 fleet. Only a few planes are done.

Correct - even if you know the information it is a wise move not to discuss prior to the flight. Besides it is always subject to change based on that aircrafts' routing, delays, tech, etc.
None shall pass!!!!

Not that few..there are close to 40 757s that have wifi by now...

Turned out to be one of the internationally configured 752Es (I think E was the letter on the safety card) with winglets. Unusual for the JFK-LAX route, I think. No wifi. Flight was oversold.
Couldn't figure out the reg. Could you tell me now?  Smile
