NEW ON DELTA INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS: Delta Economy Comfort Seating
A whole new world of travel comfort takes off in summer 2011 with the introduction of Economy Comfort seating on our long-haul international flights. Early boarding gives you extra time to find your seat and get situated. Stretch out with up to four inches additional legroom. Recline 50% further than standard Economy Class seating. Then enjoy complimentary beer, wine, and spirits along the way. Try it and see how the idea of "affordable comfort" is no longer a stretch.

This comfort seating is available now for flights beginning on June 1st and there are 36 of these seats on the Boeing 777 flight from Atlanta to Johannesburg and return – they are located in the front of the economy class cabin. With any economy class ticket these seats can be purchased from Delta. All of the reservations that I have looked at are running $160 per person each way. If you are a Diamond or Platinum Medallion member or have paid for a full fare (Y, B or M) class economy ticket then these seats are complimentary. Go to My Trips on Delta.com and enter your name and confirmation number and then view the seats that are available and it will give you the pricing for economy comfort if they are available.
