Delta 777-200ER/LR Conversions to 7HD & 7HB. Pre-mods config is 37J/36W/218Y. For all the ERs and the first LR, post-mods config was initially 28J/48W/220Y (7HD/7HB). The post-mods config for all ERs and LRs is now 28J/48W/90Y+/122Y (7CD/7CB).

Looks like N862DA is scheduled to leave Singapore in a few minutes (6AM 1/6) and will go SIN-NRT-MSP to reenter service.

Refit 777s will be sold with D1, PS, C+, and Y beginning on flights on and after March 1.

There will be 11 rows of C+ according to seat maps after March 1. This makes sense since Delta did not plan on C+ in the original refit LOPA and the only way to get the extra legroom is to remove one row of seats, which provides 31" split amongst the 11 rows.

Aaaaamazing. 11 rows makes these a lot more attractive: on flights that aren't entirely full, you might actually end up with an empty middle in C+ seating for once! That, plus the 9-across seating Delta has kept, goes a long way towards making me willing to book a Y ticket on the 777. (I usually try to avoid booking international coach on anything without a 2-across section, with the 330 my overall favorite and the 767 a close runner-up.)

It will be interesting to see how so many Comfort+ seats impact buy-up offers. They've got to maximize revenue per unit of floor space (and weight carried). I don't expect too many Comfort+ seats to fly empty after they get some data by route and tweak the revenue management algorithms.

May be I am misunderstanding this. So if they are splitting 31" amongst 11 rows, that is anywhere between 2.5" and 3" per row. Doesn't the current C+ product have 4 extra inches per row on intl flights?

Here's the current claim on the Comfort+ features web page, with 'up to' being the key term:

Delta Comfort+ gives you space, with up to 3 more inches of legroom on domestic flights and up to 4 more inches on international.

IMHO, if they have 34" pitch in Comfort+ Delta execs won't lose sleep.

Here is a partial seatmap of an NRT>ATL flight after this March 1 cutoff that I am on. My economy seats have been turned in to "comfort+" seats

11 rows of C+ on the 777 is awesome. As a PM, this makes flying to DL Australia or South Africa (both on my bucket list) more attractive. Though I would consider PS if the price is right, an 18.5" seat w/ 34 pitch is pretty decent, so the case for 777 PS is kinda weak.

I wonder why they didn't do 3-4 rows of PS on the 777 and figure out how to fit maybe 4 rows of C+ and the rest regular Y back to the Door 3 cross aisle. But I'm not complaining!

As to why DL is bringing back C+ to the 777, adding it to the A350, and will now presumably will just cut reg Y to add PS to the A330: competition (as well as ancillary revenue for DL). UA has kept (though shrunk) Y+ with the addition of Prem Plus. And AA has a 772 with the following seat count: J37/W24/Y+66/Y146.

This is un-freakin-real! Is DL really putting close to 100 C+ seats in addition to 48 Premium Select??? If so, this is amazing news and shows why DL is truly ahead of the other US carriers! Biggest downfall of DL to/from Asia this past year has been lack of C+ on 359s...

11 rows of C+? Holy cow. That was pleasantly unexpected!

C+ will be full while Y will have the empty seats. At least in my anecdotal experience.

Seems like they are trying to minimize ERs flying without the suites. 861DA is barely flying and 867DA has been doing many short domestic hops. Interesting choice.

Until C+ fills up, and then only Y seats are available!
