Talk about a win-win-win for our airline! Not only are a ton of CRJ’s 100/200 going away, but SW Air will be paying for the conversion of the 717’s to Delta specifications according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Delta shareholders sure should be proud of all the recent choices Delta is making to improve the bottom line.
I also applaud Delta for not just making these an “upgraded” CRJ fleet of 88 jets, but fully integrating these birds with 1st class, EC seats, better galleys and wifi. It will be interesting to see just how many seats they do put in, but we can compare to the old arrangement with AirTran at SeatGuru.
I like the MD’s as for just Lisa & me we can pick the 2 seat side rather than the 3 either side configuration of the 737 & 757’s. The leg room is nice in the back exit row and I will be sitting a bunch in this same seat on my coming mileage runs.
What do you think. Are you looking forward to the “new and improved” Delta 717’s? – Rene
