I always check out Delta PR video’s through the official Delta YouTube channel but the other day when I was surfing around, the suggested videos “I may like to see” was the one below showing some of the old birds Delta has flown over the years. Boy did it bring back memories from my youth.
While Delta no longer flies 727’s anymore, they are still up in the air. Also, I am proudly a 25+ year ex-smoker and thus one who is the most easily offended by smoke! I remember being a smoker and smoking on airplanes. I also remember hating the smell when I was younger. My fellow BA blogger Frequent Flying has some old Delta seat maps of what it was like back in the day.
Delta also has tons of information online about the history of Delta and Delta Jets at the Delta History museum page.
And if you get nostalgic, or just want to save some money on a set of flatware, and miss the Delta branded first class utensils, you can order a 64 piece set right now for just $32 plus s&h! Seriously?
So tell me, which planes did you like and which ones are you happy to see gone. The paint is old school on these; what did you think of the seats back then? 🙂 – René
