Here's the official caption for the photo:

The other plane used appears to be a CO 767. Other photos appear to show two soldiers in what I guess are CO's BusinessFirst seats.

Amazing that they were able to upgrade to BF on CO. Usually that is reserved for CO employees only.

We wish them all a quick and safe return...

Those soliders are REAL men, they don't complain when there is no meal or cabin service.

They get meals and cabin service, and I hope none of them are injured from trying to sit in LRTC (less room throughout coach) as the DL MD 11 in coach is down right awful!

However, the BizE in the MD11 is much better then the 767
