Delta overhead TV's

Can anyone help, I am booked on a flight to JFK with Delta airlines on their Boeing 767-300 ER (2x4x2) config.
I have 2 seats together (window and aisle) my problem is cannot find anywhere that can tell me were the overhead TV monitors will be situated.

Am on row 36 a & b is the overhead monitor miles away or right on top of me?

First, seating is 2-3-2.

Check out this photo:

The row that's immediately in front of the photogrpaher is Row 37. The closest monitors are mounted above Row 34. But notice that they are above the aisle, and with the shape of the overhead luggage compartment, I doubt the window seat can get a good view of the monitor.

dear Rkkwan,
Many thanks I believe you have come to my rescue before with regards to flight info, am very grateful.

In the picture the tv monitors look that high up its a wonder anyone can view them, do they 'pop' down further or are they stuck up as high as it looks in the picture.

Also, have never flown Delta before last flew with USairways to Phili last year. Are they a decent airline and is this a comfy plane. I appreciate any info.

That's it. Those monitors don't drop down anymore. Originally, all there was is the large projection screen up front. Only later did they add those above the aisle.

Personally, I'll bring my own entertainment.

DL's okay.

Ann - agree that 1) DL's OK (although haven't flown them since their bankruptcy), and 2) bring your own entertainment (I've always found those ceiling-mounted monitors to be less than idea).
