Hi fellow FTers!
I'm working on updated for the new roll out of Comfort + (C+)
Thanks!
rwoman

************************************************** ***********
************************************************** ***********
On March 1, 2015, DL rebranded Economy Comfort as "Comfort+."
Delta - Comfort+
dl.com: LINK
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.

A330-200 / A332:
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.

- 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).

Related threads and posts:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/delta...767-300er.html

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+.

Yesssssss! Tons!!!!!!

There are plenty of threads with a mint of info on Economy Comfort!

edited to add . . . .

Without turning this into a trip report, I had a fantastic trip to Europe, the last couple of weeks (13 flights in 16 days), that included a VDB on AF, overnight at CDG, then rebooked on CDG/ATL the next day. I did this knowing that 16F was the only good seat left on the plane - - and AF wasn't able to assign it - - only DL could.

Anyway, long story short, day of flight, I knew Y was VERY full, so I sweet talked myself OUT of 16F - - - into 1F

Flew EC again yesterday on a 767-300ER (G) in seat 17B. Worth every penny of the extra money once again, didn't sleep on an overnight flight but it was certainly made much more comfortable and the extra recline was noticeable and appreciated!

When added to the extra comfort experienced on the outbound flight, I would certainly recommend paying the extra fee (unless you're an elite and able to get it for free, alright for some )

Sure it is, when I first made it to FO I was super happy!!! But of course, that was in the good old days, years and years ago

I am flying EC to AMS from ATL.on flight 33 I have the chose of 17B and 21B as Options. I understand Row 16 f & G has tons of room, but does 17B have the same amount of leg room as row 16? I can't tell by seatguru or the online diagram from delta. I am 6' 2" and looking for the best leg room on the flight. What would you recommend?

Thanks in Advance!
See post #1...

Take the bulkhead or last exit row and you will be fine. Keep in mind the seat is slightly narrower and has an unmoveable armrest.

That said, be sure to watch the seat map and check in at T-24, as some seats could open up...also, if you have a smartphone with the DL app, you can watch to see if any seats open up.
With no available EC seats at booking on my JFK-VCE flight next month, I booked a regular coach seat and started checking for new availability every day. I just struck it lucky. One EC seat had become available - 16F. I don't think I have ever whipped my credit card out that fast! Although Seatguru and seatexpert give this seat mixed reviews, Rwoman's picture of that row says it all. Yeah! Maybe a little sleep is in the cards. I do have a few questions for those of you who have sat in this bulkhead seat. If this plane has been upgraded to include personal video (my last flight on a 763 had it), how do you operate the video since it is a distance away. Or should I just figure that I will watch a movie on my ipad? Also, will I need earplugs to block out the breakfast action in the nearby galley? Thanks.

OP, in post #1 you reference posts 539, 608, and 698 for 738 comments. Perhaps there was some mod editing, but I'm not seeing that. Is it just me or are those referenced posts not related to 737-800?

Strange - odd that I would have done that...I'll work on sorting it out!

If it's an updated 763, your IFE monitor is in the armrest and pops out, so it'd be right there. The earplugs are up to you...

All,

I recognize there are issues with some of the referenced post #'s in Post #1. I am working to correct this and will do so as time permits over the next day or so.

Thanks!

Best seats economy comfort Delta 767-400ER

What are the best economy comfort seats and best economy seats on the Delta 767-400ER? Also do all these planes have the personal IFE now on each seat?

Yes to AVOD nose-to-tail. Best seats are 30ABFG. EC is much of a muchness, but I would stay out of the first row if you like to stretch your legs, as the bulkhead gives less room than having a seat in front to put your legs under.
