In it’s latest move to increase its revenue, Delta Air Line plans to sell upgrades to Comfort Plus onboard ALL of its flights after takeoff and above 10,000 feet. Currently onboard upgrades were only for sale on international flights and transcontinental flights, but with this change every mainline flight will offer onboard upgrades.

Delta Comfort Plus

This new change takes effect November 1st which means flight attendants will be able to offer Delta Comfort upgrades on all Delta mainline flights to any Main Cabin customer upon request after takeoff and at 10,000 feet.  These upgrades will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, regardless of member status.

In addition to added legroom, premium snacks available on flights over 900 miles and select routes under 900 miles. Starbucks, beer, wine and spirits available on flights over 250 miles.

  1. I am not saying the two are related, but here is what happened to me on my recent flight from ATL to ANC. I try to maintain silver or gold (Some status is better than none, and I actually do quite well at either level). Any way according the “mother Ship” rules silvers get to up grade within 24 hour window at no charge to comfort plus a seat came avaiable on the SEA – ANC leg and I of couse jumped on it It immediatly took me to the pay page (I could go no furthur with out paying for the seat). Luckly I got Delta Assist on it before we went below 10k feet and they fixed it. They were very cagy as to why it happened. Checked in for my flight home again with in 24 hour window and same thing happened, only this time I could not get anyone to help, and missed the seat. I have spoken to Reps, and complained on line, and they all have a diffenrent answer.

  2. Why not sell these seats if they are empty after takeoff. They should be discounted at least $50 though since I would not have the benefit the entire time. As we all know I could be on the ground awaiting takeoff perhaps an hour and the takeoff and climb to 10,000 isn’t all that quick either.
