Delta to Exclusively Fly Boeing 767-300ER Between JFK and LAX

As reported, Delta will adjust their daily flights between New York-JFK and Los Angeles-LAX to exclusively be operated by their Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. Currently, Delta flies this route with that plane, the Boeing 757-200, Boeing 767-400ER and Airbus A330. Each plane features a different Delta One configuration with one not having direct aisle access.

With this adjustment, Delta will be the only carrier to operate direct aisle access business class on every flight between these two cities.

So, is this really an upgrade? For economy passengers? Yes. There will only be one middle seat per row, and the 767-300ER has the newest seats and seat back entertainment. For Delta One? Eh. Kind of. Now, those passengers will never have a 2-2 configuration, but those lucky few flying the Airbus A330 will lose the incredible reverse herringbone seat.

Instead, they'll be confined to Delta's oldest premium product, which looks most like the photo above, rather than Delta's glorified photos up top. I suspect Delta is doing this as their 767-400ERs are receiving a face lift, and those will be deployed on higher profile international routes.
