DL 737 First Product

Thu Jun 07, 2012 3:06 am

I'm flying LAS-JFK-LAS next month in DL's F class on one of their 737's. Just wanted to get a feel for their F product on the aircraft and what some of you fellow A.netter's have experienced or heard. How are the seats? What's the IFE like? Do they offer any nice perks the other major's don't? Etc. Any opinions and/or stories would be much appreciated!

Haven't done the LAS-JFK leg, but I did fly their 738s last month in/out of SLC. I found their F seats were comfortable. We just had the overhead monitors and no PTVs, but those are around. The PTVs, if they're like the 757s, are the standard free channels (CNN, NBC, Fox etc), some movies etc. There's Gogo on them as well. I was in the window on both legs and it wasn't bad, though on the longer flights I prefer the aisle.

F service will be the typical service with two choices (probably some sort of chicken dish and pasta). The best part of DL are the Biscoff cookies. Get a few packs from the snack basket and squeeze lime juice on them. They taste really good.

I was just recently upgraded on ATL-TGU on the -700. It was a solid product: pre takeoff drink (in plastic cup), the lead stewardess took our drink orders as well as meal orders and addressed us by name prior to pushback. Meal choice was beef short rib or vegetable pasta. Attentive service, plenty of biscoff cookies and drinks. The -700s have AVOD. It was a comfortable seat (especially compared to my MD88 coach seat from ATL to DCA) for a 3.5 hour flight. Check out my trip report for a bit more info

It's called business class because it is an Int'l flight, but it's the same as domestic first.
