It's been confirmed as 10 frames internally but I don't think we've decided which configuration or ships they're going to be yet.
With all due respect, there has been no confirmation of finite plans shared with the employees. I believe DL
is exploring options to replace its 763, and I believe one of those options shared with employees is up to 10 763/ER, but I don't believe DL
has committed itself to such option as of yet. If domestic airfares remain strong, I don't doubt they'll go with this option.

They may have thinner seats, but I don't think they have a leg-up on either the 739 or 757 in pitch, at least up front. I spent an entire SEA-ATL leg on a 763 with a seat reclined into my face. I'm not a big guy, 5'7, 150lb. I couldn't get out of my seat without my seat mate getting up, and even then, it took effort to not grab the seats in the row ahead. I also could never visually find any power charger below my seat because of how close the seat in front of me was...I had to feel around and hope that I could fit the plugs in. That experience may be equal to others on a 739 or 757, but since that SEA-ATL flight, I've chosen the bulkhead to avoid that mess again.
Thank you for your response, and I appreciate that you enjoy DL
's newest generation interiors, but I'll still refute your assertion that the hard product is lacking when 85% of the domestic fleet lacks PTVs and 80% of it power. The one thing I love about 763 is that I'm pretty guaranteed a 763. Too many of my 738 & 757 flights that were suppose to have power have been swapped to equipment without them. I've even had 738 replace 739 on a couple of occasions.
We don’t care what your next flight is.
