DL 767 to Edinburgh

Fri Jun 07, 2019 10:46 am

Today’s flight JFK to EDI was a 767 as opposed to the usual 757. Anyone know why the change and is this going to be a regular occurrence.

Some times passengers get lucky with an upgauge! There are lots of substitutions in the widebody ranks, regularly captured here:

The schedules for Sa, Su and M still show a 757.
