Delta 767 First Class – I Won Ben Stein’s Coffee

Before I get to the post about dinner with DMX on an Airbus A321, I figured I’d share a report from my last Delta 767 First Class flight. On flights to the west coast, I typically look for a widebody aircraft, like Delta’s 777, A330 or internationally configured 767. None of those were an option…
