Delta Biz Elite On The A333

Tue May 22, 2012 1:00 am

Hey there,

I am going to take a trip on a Delta A330 on the 3rd of July, 2012 leaving in the evening from BOS to AMS (Flight #230). I will be returning on 23rd of July, 2012 back from AMS to BOS (flight # 231). I am in BusinessElite on both flights. I read on the Delta blog that the A330s will be getting flat beds in July, but will my flights have the old NWA angled seats or the Cirrus Weber flat seats?

Thanks in advance for all responses!

The A330s are slated as the last type to get lie-flat seats installed. In July of this year, I am sorry to say, you have 0% chance of having a lie-flat seat on the A330. From BOS, the only lie-flat route is currently to LHR on the 764.

There's no telling. This far out, I don't tink the first ship scheduled for mods has bee selected yet and there's absolutely no way to know what will operate your flight until about 3 days out so in short, no way to know!

With that being sad, I don't think the first a/c wll be in revenue service by July, I think mods will BEGIN around July. Lead time by historic data on these mods for the first a/c is abut 30-45 days. Either way, the current angled seats is a fairly solid product so enjoy  
What gets measured gets done.

Unless something has changed, A330 mods don't begin until 2013.

Thank you all! Now, I have another question-In some photos I see the IFE has a small wired remote control, while at http://theticket-atlanta.com/2012/04/27/delta-update-3/
The Ticket claims the IFE now has an "easier to use interface" Does that mean it is touchscreen?
