Delta operated a fleet of five 372 seat Boeing 747s (fleet numbers 101-105) in service from 1970 to 1977. Configured with 58 First class seats and 304 Tourist seats, N9896 inaugurated 747 service on October 25, 1970 on the Atlanta-Dallas (Love Field)-Los Angeles route. Other routes included Chicago-Miami, Chicago-Atlanta, Los Angeles-Atlanta, Detroit-Atlanta, Jacksonville-Atlanta and Detroit-Miami. Delta also operated an interchange with Pan Am using Delta's 747's on Atlanta-London Heathrow and Atlanta-Frankfurt. Can you believe Delta flew to London Heathrow and with 747's! It's true as shown in some of the pictures below.
