Ever wondered what a cabin interior looks like when it’s going through mod? It’s not pretty but the outcome will be excellent. Just like a house renovation, you can see here peering in through Door 2L, our AMT’s are hard at work renovating the cabin of 1804.
Late last week, Delta took delivery of its 7th 737-700 aircraft ship 3607. It is currently in work for its prior-to-service mods and will be our last 737 new delivery for another 6 months. We are currently in the process of reviewing our schedules to convert the numbers 3101-3104 over to the 3600 series and will have more information on timing in a future blog.
Speaking of 3100 series aircraft, ship 3102 just returned to service over this past weekend with new SAT COM equipment. She will join 3101 on the Atlanta to Manaus, Brazil run.
Wi-Fi production has begun with several more ships entering the fleet. The low dip in cold weather that Atlanta has been seeing hampered but has not harmed some of our adhesive curing. We have been able to increase the fleet to 15 aircraft with Wi-Fi. Look for 757 ships 690 and 692 flying around the system with Delta’s Wi-Fi logo installed.
Upcoming mods for February include then 75E Large Lav Tank and Sat Com mod. Ship 6803 is scheduled to induct on 09FEB where we will be increasing the volume of the lavatory tanks. 6803 will help support Delta’s newly announced Africa flying. Additionally, our first M90 aircraft will begin its prototype for Wi-Fi starting on Feb 15. Lastly, the 1st of the remaining (8) 767-300ER’s that do not currently have Sat Com will begin installation work in late February.
