DL 777 Configurations Throughout the Years

Wed Sep 30, 2020 3:34 pm

I'm trying to do some research regarding the different configurations Delta had on its 777s since they were first introduced and it's proving rather difficult to find much of anything (both on A.net and on Google). Does anyone have old seat maps, photos, and/or J/Y config breakdowns and years of refurbs?

Really the only thing I can find is the previous configuration to the current one.
Why fly with 2 engines when you can have 3?

I had forgotten DL had them delivered in the 2x5x2 configuration in coach. That's been a very long time now.

Iirc there were only 3 configurations. The original 77E configuration with 2-5-2 Y and the non lie flat business elite (seats may have been blocked for crew rest in this configuration), the 77L delivery configuration with the herringbone J and 3-3-3 Y that the 77Es were retrofitted to starting 2007-2008ish then the current layout.

The 77Es were mostly delivered in 1999 and Delta wasn’t exactly flush with cash through most of the 2000s.

There's been a few. The original non-lie flats had 52J, but when they lie-flat herringbones arrived, it was in a 45J configuration. That later got further reduced to 37J, which was the last configuration before the 28J/48W that is on there now.

Here's a Wayback Machine link showing a 777 seat map from 2005 with Business Elite at 60" pitch and coach 3x3x3.

The 77L delivery configuration had storage cabinets just aft of the L1 and R1 doors, these were removed early and two B/E seats were added in their place (seats 1A/1D).

7001-7007 were delivered with 2-5-2 seats in Y while 7008 (and all 77Ls) came from the factory with 3-3-3 in Y.

The original armrest controls in Y were mounted on top of the armrests instead of on the side of them. The f/a call bell switch was positioned right where your elbow rested. What a disaster! You can barely see it here:
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

Oh, yeh, I remember that from my first DL 777 flight. 'WTH were they thinking - did nobody with arms test this!' was my conclusion within an hour of takeoff. Bells were going off 4x a minute.
