    Comfort+ Seating on Delta

    On March 1, 2015, DL rebranded Economy Comfort as "Comfort+."
    Delta - Comfort+

    Comfort+ FAQ - LINK
    Offering:
    • C+ is a complimentary upgrade (space available) for DM and PM after booking. GM can access for free at T-72 and FO at T-24. (There is no longer a discount for GM/FO.)
    • Sky Priority boarding
    • Extra legroom and, on international a/c, extra recline
    • Free wine, spirits and regional craft beers, plus premium snacks
    • Complimentary premium entertainment from Delta Studio™ (No longer relevant as of July 1st; Entertainment now complimentary in Y)
    • On JFK-LAX/SFO flights, a Luvo® sandwich wrap and frozen Greek yogurt bar, pillow, blanket, and sleep kit are included


    A few general notes regarding DL C+:
    1. On international a/c, the bulkhead seats often have a significant amount leg room (other than the 764).
    2. The bulkhead and exit row seats are often narrower as the tray table and/or IFE unit are in the arm rests. The arm rests do not move which, coupled with a smaller seat, can be uncomfortable for larger pax.
    3. The first row of regular economy seating after EC IS NOT recommended. The last row of EC has the EC recline and members have reported that there's no extra space between this row and the first row of regular Y.
    4. Selecting C+ Seats - You cannot select or purchase C+ seats until after booking is completed on revenue or award tickets. The UG has to clear as well.

    Internationally Configured Aircraft
    Per DL, International/transoceanic C+ offers 35" pitch and 6" recline. (LINK)

    747-400 / 744 / 74S:
    • dl.com seat map: 747-400
      Rows 22-26 - 42 total C+ seats.
    • Legroom:
      Row 22 ABC/HJK and 24 DEFG are the bulkhead seats. 22C/H are noted as having unlimited legroom and some have noted that people can congregate due to the proximity of the lavatories, which are located directly in front of the first row of C+ on the 744. 22ABC have recently received poor reviews because of the lav and galley - people tend to congregate in this area and it can become stinky. Comments on 22K indicate that pax can access the aisle without disturbing other passengers. Also, the lavatory near 22HJK is blocked for BusinessElite pax, so there tends to be fewer disturbances and become less smelly over the course of a long flight. Also, seats 22B and 22J can be used for bassinets.
      Some might prefer the legroom of row 35/51 on the 744 with less recline and tray in armrest.


    777-200LR / 777-200ER / 772
    • dl.com seat maps: 777-200LR / 777-200ER
      Rows 31-34; 36 C+ seats
      NOTE: As DL reduced the number of Business Elite seats on the 777s, rows 29-32 are now the C+ seats.
      The C+/Economy seats on a/c has winged headrests.
    • Legroom:
      Row 29/31 seats are the bulkhead seats and have plenty of leg room. Rows 30-32/32-34 are standard C+ seats with USB and plug power. Row 44 (exit row) has excellent legroom, but no power outlets. The window seat sin this row are narrower because the tray table is in the armrest does not move up. The recline is standard recline.
      IFE:
      These a/c are equipped with IFE at each seat.




    A330-300 / A333:
    • dl.com seat maps: A333 / A3L3
      • A333: C+ is rows 10-14
        NOTE: All of the A330-300s have been modified or are in the process of being modified.

    • Legroom:
      • A333 - 10 AB and 10HJ have a bulkhead/galley in front of them.

    • Legroom:

    767-400 / 764 / 76D:
    • dl.com seat map: LINK
      C+ is rows 15-18
    • Legroom:
      On the 764, the bulkhead seats (row 15) have less leg room than the 763's; there's probably about 2' or so between the edge of the seat and the wall. The bulkhead seats do not have moveable arm rests and the tray table/IFE monitor are in the arm rests. In my experience, I felt like the A332/333 and 763's had better recline in EC than the 764.
    • IFE:
      These a/c are equipped with IFE at each seat.
      Note: The overhead bins above 16 CDE have emergency equipment in them and cannot be used for stowage of luggage.

    ************************************************** ***********

    Flying to Hawaii in C+:
    - From DL's C+ page: 3-4" (7-10 cm) extra legroom/ Up to 50% more recline on select routes (JFK to/from SFO or LAX, and ATL/MSP/or JFK to/from HNL).


    C+ and Priority Boarding/Baggage Allowance:
    Passengers in C+ get Sky Priority boarding unless their elite status provides a higher boarding zonemu access. There is no additional baggage allowance unless elite status or fare class provide it.


    Status Changes:
    There have been a couple of questions regarding C+ when a member's status drops down after January 31. Typically, seats will hold unless there is an equipment change. If there's a change, the passenger(s) will most likely be seated in regular economy. There are reports of some success contacting @delta to get reseated in C+.

    I never flew on Delta Airlines but I believe they are a good company.
