Delta is adding economy comfort seating to all two-class Delta flights beginning June 7, 2012. This means if you are a Delta Elite you’ll have access to up to 4 extra inches of room. It’s basically like a bunch of exit row seats in the front part of the coach cabin.

With long first class upgrade lists, these seats will be a nice conciliatory prize that gives elite members a little extra room to stretch out.

Go ahead – stretch out.

Beginning June 7th, you can enjoy Economy Comfort™ on all two-class Delta flights.

With up to four additional inches of legroom, Economy Comfort gives you extra space to work or relax. Plus, on our long-haul international flights, you also will enjoy 50% more recline and complimentary beer, wine and spirits in the Economy Comfort section.

As a Diamond or Platinum Medallion® member, you can take advantage of complimentary access to Economy Comfort and other Preferred Seats.

So what are you waiting for? Book Economy Comfort for your next trip. If you’ve already booked a flight, log in to My Trips at and select your Economy Comfort seat. You can also choose your seat when checking in online or at an airport kiosk.

Bottom Line

If you take elite heavy routes, you’ll notice these seats book up fast.

  1. Delta didn’t waste anytime… Heard this announcement earlier this week, and flew 2 757s with EC today (5/25). Had no idea I was going to have them.. Pleasant suprise since my upgrades didn’t clear..
