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

************************************************** ***********
************************************************** ***********
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.

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.

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+.

Is there a website or an App that will monitor the availability of Delta Economy Comfort seats on a specific flight? I am booked on a specific flight and all the Economy Comfort seats are currently gone, but I feel sure that some will come available in the couple of months before the flight. I am checking the flight twice a day but I have an idea that there must be some website or App that will check every couple of minutes. Thanks!

Seat alert in Expert Flyer may work.

Unfortunately not in this case. As we note on the DL seat maps, EC seats will always show as Occupied or Block due to DL not displaying the true availability of those seats, so a Seat Alert for EC seats would never alert you to any openings.

Help me choose seat on international 767

I am flying DL 136 from JFK to Pisa in June. It is a 767

The seat map shows row 16 FG and row 17 AB as the first rows of Economy Comfort. None of the photos I've been able to find on flyer talk of the seats on a 767 300 seem to be of the same type of 767.

My question is whether row 16 FG will have good leg room. It seems that row 17 AB does have good legroom from the seat map.

The plane is the 76L version.

16FG probably have the most legroom of almost any seats on that plane... almost FC type legroom with an EC seat that's not FC. Unless you are over 6'6" I doubt your feet can touch the wall in front of you... sort of a private setting that we experienced on flights to and from Istanbul a couple of years ago.

Agreed. Those are my favorite EC seats.

Thank you for the recommendation on 16FG.

I'm curious why the seat map for the 76L plane makes it appear that row 17 has more leg room. is that just an illusion?

A slight inaccuracy, I would say. 17AB and 16FG have similar amounts of leg room but I would say that 16 has a little bit more. It also is more private since it is forward of the other seats. 16 is closer to the galley, which was not very active once dinner was over. There is a lav forward of 16FG but it is for the BE passengers and several feet away, on the other side of a curtain.

The 76L does not have individual IFE but 17AB, 17CDE, and 16FG have a video screen right in front of each set of seats. If you select those seats you should bring a sleeping mask to cut off the light from the movies, which run all night.

Hi - I am looking at row 24 seats D-G EC on a 747-400 from NY-Narita...it's an extra $139 pp which means about an extra $1000 for our family of 4 round-trip...we are travelling with a squirmy 6 & 9 year old and wondering if the extra space / no people in front of us is worth the extra cost. We only do this trip every 3 yrs so happy to spend some extra $ if it will be significantly better..we are def. taking this flight and the next best seating option is row 42. We've only flown ANA and Singapore before so really not sure. Any feedback would be great! Thanks.

Am I in a standing room only "seat"?

On a MSP-SEA flight the plane shows is 737-700. My seat assignment is listed as 11C. The seat map goes from row 10 to 15, there is no row 11, 12, 13, or 14 listed. Delta's generic seat map for this plane is completely different:
http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_...7-700-73w.html
(it says Rows 4 to 9 don't exist, although rows 6-9 are shown as fully assigned for my flight when I look at the seat map for my reservation.)

I hope the generic diagram is right, as if it is, I am still in Economy Comfort.

Can anyone confirm that EC on the T-con 752 (LAX/SFO-JFK) has extra recline or not, or just more legroom?

Delta can!

Up to 50% more recline on the following routes: JFK to/from SFO or LAX and ATL to/from HNL

How about EC seating on the A330 (Rome to JFK)? Should we try for row 10? or 12 middle section?
