DL ATL-HNL

Wed Nov 10, 2004 8:27 am

Hello all,
I am trevleing on DL ATL-HNL in about a week. I know the flight is operated with a 767. Can anyone give any info on DLs a/c? Video monitors in the seats or the old school way just in front with a few monitors? Any info on the in-flight service? I havent flown DL in a long time. I usually non-rev on Star Alliance but thought it might be better to go confirmed to HNL, and DL had the best price. Thanks for any info or help.

Thanks

As for the layout an inflight entertainment, check out seatguru.com. I am sure others will be responding about the inflight service.

You wont have PTV's, however, every seat is equipped for power ports, monitors hang from the hall areas. Youll most likely have only 31" pitch, and the width of the seats is only 17-18".

As for service, dont be surprised if all that you get is a half of a sandwhich, apple, slice of cheese, and water.

Do the DL power ports accept regular 3 pronged plugs?

Thanks

It's acually EmPower, an onboard aircraft power supply fed off of one of the generators....you have to bring your own power addapter, you can find the link on delta.com, or Empower's website. 3 prong won't work unfortunately.

Now there's 3 764's on the route, so don't expect a ton of seat pitch, although the seats aren't bad comfort wise.

At least if it's a 764, you'll have a reasonably new and up-to-date airplane. I flew one from FLL-ATL and even on that short flight we had TV programs and Airshow.
Great Lakes, great life.

The link from DLs website offers the adapter for 119usd. Thats crazy. Is there a universal one that will fit?

I nonrev on DLs 764s a lot - on long flights. Service is typical from a US carrier. Lunch of only 1 choice with tiny portions and a snack later in the flight... usually a sandwich and chips and cookie. Movies will be screened as well as an airshow. Delta horizons is pretty good. But they do need a better selection of music. At least NWA and their old DC10s provide better audio selections... the DL music gets really old on a 9-10 hour flight. All in all, not that bad... especially for the price (nonrev).

The price is always good when going nonrev  Big grin

As for the adaptor...I haven't heard of any universal one, sorry to say...looks like you'll have to shell out the bucks, which is an investment if you plan to hop the pond/take domestic longhaul alot.

Brookstone's at ATL sells a somewhat universal adapter. It has different plugs for each airline. I think it is around $100.

Go to BestBuy or CircuitCity and get an APC Auto/Air to AC Adapter. They're usually around $49.99 or so. The link for the product is http://www.apc.com/products/family/index.cfm?id=9&fs=Mobile%20Computing.

It converts the 15V EmPower into a standard (albeit low wattage) 110v outlet.

I have one and, provided you have a laptop whose power unit draws less than 75W @ 110v (about 0.6A - check the bottom of your laptop power unit), it can power it using your regular power unit, and the 3-pin plug in the machine.

These are EmPower approved and they work just fine on Delta Air Lines. Unfortunately, some laptop power units draw more than 75W (I have that problem now, too), but if you have a standard laptop with a small-ish transformer, you'll be fine.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have questions about this any further.

Be careful Non-Revving to HI on Delta. I checked avail and there were like 80 seats open. No Problem. I show up for the flight and there are 80 non-revs. Not good. I made it but some buddy pass riders didn't. Delta doesn't tell you how many non-revs are listed, like AA's JetNet does. Plus, I non-revved to Kauai on AA and there were 3 non-revs. I wonder why Delta has sooooo many more.

If you get coach, ask for seat 10F or G. Bulkhead, footrest and tons of legroom. (Supposedly crew rest seats) I found it more comfortable than the 1st class seat I rode back on.

I have heard horror stories about United Non-Revs getting stuck in HNL. I bought confirmed economy tkts this time. I didnt feel like putting up with the hassle. If anyone at ATLDL can hook up a fellow airline employee with bulkheads seats at the gate let me know. Thanks

The 764ER is a far cry from any old-fashioned aircraft. It is as modern as the 777, just has a thinner fuselage and thinner seats. PTVs, etc., and what not. It surprises me DL has the best revenue on the ATL-HNL flight, as bad as they are doing.

The DL-equipped 764 has PTVs in first class only. Overhead/common single channel in coach. B4
