Domestic 767s are the best birds in the fleet if you are flying coach.

Looks like ANC-ATL is also on the domestic 763s. Kind of surprised that aircraft has the legs for that route but the seat map seems to indicate that's what it is.

ANC-ATL is only like 3000 miles. 767 can almost make it there and back in one tank.

The 767-300ER that Delta uses on international routes can make it easily. The 767-300 that is used domestically is a different matter. That said I suppose it's not much different from the SLC-HNL flight where the 767-300 has long been used.

How were the drop-down screens, cloth seats, and smoking section?

Well a guy comes on the plane with that seat assignment and sits down in it when right before the door is supposed to close the FA tells him that he can't sit there and needs to move. Everyone had boarded and the flight was full so they had to go kick a non-rev off from the back and they put that guy in a middle seat in the very last row. That guy was actually staying at the same hotel as me and I was talking to him more and he told me that he was actually kicked out of FC the night before (We were downgraded from a 16F A320 to a 12F A320 at T-24)
couldn't agree more! I'm sitting on N313US and it literally is falling apart. I'm fairly sure delta would have at least done new seat covers by now if it wasn't leaving in Dec... but I am not looking forward to what this A320 will look like that many months from now. She is TIRED. I keep getting stuck on N310US, N313US and N314US. Had the "pleasure" of flying N318US on her second to last day in service.

A couple cocktails in HNL SC, perhaps even prosecco PDB; as long as it's lay-flat I'll be happy & napping......
When I was there last month, they didn't have any prosecco/sparkling wine/champagne catered. I had enough tropical cocktails while I was in Hawaii, so I drank a halfway decent sauvignon blanc with very generous pours from the bar attendant.

The Sky Club at HNL may be a little outdated, but the staff are friendly.
