Re: Delta Aircraft Refurbishment Thread - 2019

The more recent A320 retirements were made in 2017 and those aircraft never got any of the new seats, bins, fittings. They didn't get P1 or P2 upgrades. Other than the seat recovering and new carpet they got post-merger, they still had the original fittings from NW. And boy were they ratty towards ...
