Delta’s entry into the growing mid priced “Economy Comfort” class.
On June first, Delta will initiate a new class called Economy Comfort. These seats will have an additional four inches of legroom, some free booze, priority boarding, free HBO programming on the seatback TVs, and about 50 percent greater angle recline. Initially, they’ll be available on select long-haul intercontinental routes.
Beginning May 9th, Delta joined other carriers in offering a middle class of service. When you book an economy ticket, and one of these seats is available, you may upgrade, for a fee. Prices will vary, but, you can expect about an $ 80 fee (+/-) for a one-way East Coast to Europe flight.
These seats may be offered as “free upgrades” to members of their frequent flier Diamond and Platinum Medallion clients.
