    I have been to PHF before though. Had a 30 some hour layover there. But with being on reserve my schedule is extremely last minute.

    There's a very very slight chance, but quite unlikely. I'm scheduled to be off that day because I have recurrent training the next day. However, I'm on reserve and the 3rd is not a guaranteed day off so if they assign me a trip on the 2nd that involves flying on the 3rd, my day off gets moved to later in the month.

    To be honest I have absolutely no idea when we will be in SLC or Denver and I have no idea where we are going in between the two places. Our flight out of SLC is on Aug. 5th or 6th, Travelocity keeps changing it around.

    As far as the camera goes... I am not sure how big exactly the lens is that you are talking about, but the biggest one I have is only 55-200 and I always bring it abroad. I will get funny looks, but everything has gone smoothly so far (knock on wood). The 100-400 is a bigger lens though.

    Oh, and the AVOD, is hit or miss. I just flew a 738 from DEN-SLC and it did not have it, but I know many do.

    I have an uneasy feeling that it very may be a 700. I'm scared now!

    Just checked on Delta.com and its a 200...so you're safe. PM me once it gets a bit closer to taking the flight cause I might be hanging around the airport anyway that day.

    z740,

    AVOD has been installed on some of the 738 and 752 aircraft but some of them are not equipt with them yet. It is pretty hit or miss when it comes to that. If you have then on the plane they are free for the most part however there are certain things that you have to pay for (some movies, games, etc need to be purchased)

    I hope you enjoy your flights!

    Flying with Delta/Got a Few Questions

    This summer my family has eight flights booked with Delta. It has been a few years since I have flown on mainline Delta. All of my recent DL flight have been with one of their regional carriers. Since times have changed a tad over the past few years I have a few questions that hopefully you can help me with.

    First of all, I will most likely be renting a Canon 100-400L lens to accompany me on our first trip (RIC-ATL & ATL-DEN, then SLC-JFK & JFK-RIC). I have every intention of carrying it onto the plane(I'm not taking any unnecessary risks with a rental) but I was wondering if it would cause too much of a disturbance among our fellow passengers if I was to bring it out while on the ground(taxing, etc). I was hoping to get a few pic with it while we're at the airport but I'm not so sure I want to bring out such a large piece of equipment on the plane. Is it a bad idea to use such a large lens while on the plane?

    Second, for the first trip we will be on a 738 for one flight(ATL-DEN) and a 752(SLC-JFK) for another. I was wondering if DL has installed the AVOD in either of these A/C yet.

    Lastly, If DL has installed it, do you have to pay to use it(maps, music, TV) or is it free? I looked all over their website but I couldn't find an answer.

    Thanks for your help.
