Hi fellow FTers!

I'm working to get the information from post #1 and elsewhere migrated to this wiki. It will take a bit of time since I want to ensure the links are current!

Delta - Economy Comfort
dl.com: LINK

A few general notes regarding DL EC:
  1. 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 EC Seats - You cannot select EC seats until after booking is completed on revenue or award tickets.

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

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

747-400 / 744 / 74S:
  • dl.com seat map: 747-400
    Rows 22-26 - 42 total EC 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 EC 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.

  • dl.com seat maps: 777-200LR / 777-200ER
    Rows 31-34; 36 EC seats
    NOTE: As DL reduced the number of Business Elite seats on the 777s, rows 29-32 will be the EC seats.
    The EC/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 EC 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.

  • 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.

Flying to Hawaii in EC:
- From DL's EC page: 3-4" (7-10 cm) extra legroom/ Up to 50% more recline on select routes (JFK to/from SFO or LAX, and ATL to/from HNL). However, I believe that not all of the a/c used on the routes have additional recline - it is a/c dependent and alcoholic drinks are not complementary.
- Cost appears to be up to $99 for EC to/from Hawaii.

EC and Priority Boarding/Baggage Allowance:
Passengers in EC get Zone 1 boarding unless their elite status provides a higher boarding zone/Sky Priority access. There is no additional baggage allowance unless elite status or fare class provide it.

Costs:

Costs for Medallion members:
International:
Diamond/Platinum Medallion/Flying Blue Platinum - Free
Gold Medallion/Flying Blue Gold/SkyTeam Elite Plus/AS MVPG - 50% off
Silver Medallion/Flying Blue Silver/SkyTeam Elite - 25% off

Transcon/Domestic:
Diamond/Platinum/Gold Medallion/Flying Blue Platinum & Gold/SkyTeam Elite Plus - Free
Silver Medallion/SkyTeam Elite - 50% off
Flying Blue Silver are noted as Silver Medallions in the DL system. KLRalphFlyer was able to get free EC at check in - LINK

On the Delta Shuttle, EC is part of the open seating - dgxoxo's experience - LINK

Passengers traveling on Y/B/M fares can also book EC seats for free.

Economy Comfort Companions:
There has been a bit of discussion on whether or not companions on a different PNR can be seated with a DM/PM (international) or DM/PM/GM (domestic) in EC for free. The T&C specify that companions must be on the same PNR.
Quote:
The Economy Comfort Medallion travel companion benefit is applicable for up to eight companions traveling on the same reservation as the Medallion member.
However, in practice, DL appears to be honoring an EC seat assignment for one companion.

Experiences with ONE WAY costs:

$40-$180 per segment were reported as the international EC cost.

LINK to ongoing spreadsheet related to reported EC costs.

Status Changes:
There have been a couple of questions regarding EC when a member's status drops down after February 28/29. 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 @deltaassist to get reseated in EC.

Arrow FAQ: Economy Comfort Seating

Hi Everyone,

I know this is a topic that has been discussed in many threads...decided to create a one-stop-thread. Also, many of us have now had the chance to utilize the Economy Comfort section on EC equipped flights. I figured this could serve as a consolidated thread especially as people come to the forum looking for answers. I've put the a/c I am familiar with below and have pulled info from other threads.

I will happily update information I do not have based on others' input. For now, I'll leave it with the international equipped a/c and the thread can be updated with domestic information as the program is rolled out.

Please let me know if I missed anything!

Thanks!

robin

Economy Comfort:

NOTE:

1. The bulkhead seats often have a significant amount leg room (other than the 764). These are 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.

2. 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.

Recent thread on booking EC seats: Possible issues when booking EC

Selecting EC Seats: You cannot select EC seats until after booking is completed on revenue or award tickets.

Per DL, International/transoceanic Economy Comfort offers 35" pitch and 6" recline. (LINK)

747 - International:
Rows 22-26 - 42 total EC 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 EC 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.
IFE: As of 4 Oct 2012, 13 of 16 744s completed modifications and have AVOD; 2 are being modified; 1 remains unmodified

767-300ER/76G - International:
The headrests on the non-refurbished 763's do not have winged headrests.
EC: EC on the updated 763's is in rows 17-21 (76L/U/T) or rows 13-16 (76N/Z).

Legroom: See link below for pics of legroom on the modified 763ERs, which is still decent, but not as good prior to modification. The bulkhead seats do not have moveable arm rests. On 763's with row 20 and 21 as EC seats, note these are both exit rows and seats recline in both rows.

On the 763's (not all types), there is a lavatory for Y passengers on the AB side. Passengers waiting to use the lav can congregate in the open area by the bulkheads. In some instances, passengers use the space in front of the CDE bulkhead seats to move to the other aisle. There is a lav on the FG side, but it is reserved for J passengers.

Please use a combination of configurations on delta.com and seatguru to determine where the lavs are on your aircraft. NOTE: Not all mods are showing on the seat maps.

DC-9 - Domestic
DC9-50's with no row 5 have EC.
Seat 6E is the bulkhead/aisle seat on the starboard side of the plane. and behind the F cabin. Bags can be stowed under the last row of F. Seat 7D has "unlimited" legroom.
NOTE: While dl.com may show seat 6D, there is no seat there.

CRJ-900's
Rows 5, 6, and 7
Note: The first row of EC tends to be more desirable than the exit row, as the exit row tends to have legroom similar to that of the other seats on the CRJ.

Flying to Hawaii in EC:
- From DL's EC page: 3-4" (7-10 cm) extra legroom/ Up to 50% more recline on select routes (JFK to/from SFO or LAX, and ATL to/from HNL). However, I believe that not all of the a/c used on the routes have additional recline - it is a/c dependent and alcoholic drinks are not complementary.
- Cost appears to be up to $99 for EC to/from Hawaii.

EC and Priority Boarding/Baggage Allowance:
Passengers in EC get Zone 1 boarding unless their elite status provides a higher boarding zone/Sky Priority access. There is no additional baggage allowance unless elite status or fare class provide it.

Costs:

dl.com Economy Comfort™ Comparison - The cost of EC seats varies based on the length of the flight.

Costs for Medallion members:
International:
Diamond/Platinum Medallion/Flying Blue Platinum - Free
Gold Medallion/Flying Blue Gold/SkyTeam Elite Plus/AS MVPG - 50% off
Silver Medallion/Flying Blue Silver/SkyTeam Elite - 25% off

Transcon/Domestic:
Diamond/Platinum/Gold Medallion/Flying Blue Platinum & Gold/SkyTeam Elite Plus - Free
Silver Medallion/SkyTeam Elite - 50% off
Flying Blue Silver are noted as Silver Medallions in the DL system. KLRalphFlyer was able to get free EC at check in - LINK

On the Delta Shuttle, EC is part of the open seating - dgxoxo's experience - LINK

Passengers traveling on Y/B/M fares can also book EC seats for free.

Economy Comfort Companions:
There has been a bit of discussion on whether or not companions on a different PNR can be seated with a DM/PM (international) or DM/PM/GM (domestic) in EC for free. The T&C specify that companions must be on the same PNR.
Quote:
The Economy Comfort Medallion travel companion benefit is applicable for up to eight companions traveling on the same reservation as the Medallion member.
However, in practice, DL appears to be honoring an EC seat assignment for one companion.

Experiences with ONE WAY costs:
$9-$99 per segment were reported as the domestic EC cost.
$40-$180 per segment were reported as the international EC cost.

LINK to ongoing spreadsheet related to reported EC costs.

Status Changes:
There have been a couple of questions regarding EC when a member's status drops down after February 28/29. 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 @deltaassist to get reseated in EC.

Right to assign/reassign EC seats and right to a refund when paying for EC:
We reserve the right to assign or reassign an Economy Comfort seat at any time, even after boarding of the aircraft, for operational, safety or security reasons. The final decision resides with the ground staff and the operating crew on the day of the flight.

I've been on the 752v1. All coach has IFE on these but most content requires payment. The EC seats have complimentary movies and other programming.

Edit: This was on domestic flights. I'm not sure if they change the IFE on TATL flights to give all coach movies. Haven't ever had the pleasure of a TATL flight in a 752.

Wow! Thanks for this! I've got a flight coming up in EC on a 777 at the end of the year and was just wondering if it would be worth trying to get row 31 from the GA when I get there. Sounds like it might be better than 34. My only question not covered here is whether or not having a window seat in 31 is worth it or if you're still just looking at a whole lot of wing?

No so much of the wing, but you will get a nice view of the front of the engine pod.

Greetings from 31A on a 777 (waiting for departure to DXB). Legroom is awesome. View of engine pod is second to none.

I got the bulkhead at the gate. Was originally in a non-EC aisle. Was charged $80 at the gate, even as a PM. Does that sound correct to you guys? GA said only Diamonds get free EC but that, as a PM, I got a 50% discount. I paid up obviously but was definitely surprised to have to do so.

EC is supposed to be free for both DM and PM. What airport are you departing from that said that PMs get a 50% discount?

For sure GA was wrong. EC should be free for you.
I believe DL will make refund, just write a complain on DL.com.

Per SeatGuru, yes, the MD11 has EC - remember the charges for KL's EC seats are different than DL. Any further inquiry is probably best made on the KLM forum.
