777-200ER/LR cabin mods tracking thread

Hi all,

We have recently that I heard the news about Delta. Delta is going to be removed some BusinessElite Class and they will add more economy class in the entire 777 aircraft.

Here is the ship#:

B777-200ER/LR

N860DA 7001
N861DA 7002
N862DA 7003
N863DA 7004
N864DA 7005
N865DA 7006
N866DA 7007
N867DA 7008

N701DN (7101)
N702DN (7102)
N703DN (7103)
N704DK (7104)
N705DN (7105)
N706DN (7106)
N707DN (7107)
N708DN (7108)
N709DN (7109)
N710DN (7110)

The ship#7110 (N710DN) is going to GSO. They will be in Greensboro for a week and it will be complete sometime in a few week or so.

Here is the flight tracker:

I didn't realize these were starting already. Quite a shame.

How did N710DN operate PVG-DTW on both January 27 and 28 without turning back for Shanghai?

I don't want to be on board the flight when they find out (and it will happen, multiple times) that they have fewer BE than listed.
Any bets on the first FT report that it happens?
(I booked BE and ended in Y?!?!?)

I'm guessing they will show up on DTW-PVG/PEK/AMS which from my experience fill very few business seats (AMS more than the China flights). I doubt DXB, JNB or SYD will see these planes until the loaded date when they are only selling 38J.

Interesting, I didn't know they did this type of work in Greensboro. Who/what is there?

TIMCO. Do a ton of heavy work for DL, UA & WN among others.

The 01/28 flight is a FlightAware glitch. N701DN operated PVG-DTW on 01/28.

Wow, DL moving so fast to remove BE seats. Probably will match up with the ability to use GPU's.

Are all 777s getting the extra Y seats? I thought only a portion of the fleet was supposed to.

Just noticed the seat map for my ATL-DTW flight on a 777 on the morning of 3/17 has been updated this morning to the new configuration. Looks like it continues on to PVG. The 3/16 DTW-PVG still has the old config, so this might be the maiden voyage of the new configuration?

Any chance someone could start a wiki thread like in the A330 modification thread? That's interesting to follow, though ending soon.

How many seats does a delta 777 have now and what will it be reduced to? will the 767 and A330 J cabin be reduced as well?

They will reduce 7 business seats from 777. It appears that A330 J cabin is safe. Additional info about the configuration of 777 can be found at http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/delta...7-changes.html
