flights. However this was the first time I saw the light sliver “economy comfort” head rests on a regional jet.
Currently Delta.com is NOT showing economy comfort availability on any flights other than international and transcontinental to JFK flights. The seat maps have also not been updated on
delta.com to show that the economy comfort has been launched or that plans have been reconfigured. Once reconfigured, green seats will appear on the seat map. I did not notice the change until the
end of the flight, so I was not able to get up to see if a row was removed from the plane or to see how Delta managed to squeeze another a few more inches of leg room and recline into the first
three rows of the aircraft.
Per Delta, Economy comfort will be launched on all flights Summer of 2012. At this time,
Economy Comfort will be available across its entire mainline fleet for an additional introductory fee of $19 to $99. The fee is waived for Delta Diamond/ Platinum/ Gold Medallion, and those
customers in higher economy fares such as Y, B & M. In addition, Air France/KLM Flying Blue Platinum/ Gold members, SkyTeam Elite Plus, and Alaska Airlines MVP Gold will receive economy comfort
for free, however it will only be 50% OFF for Delta Silver Medallions, Flying Blue Silver, SkyTeam Elite, and Alaska Airlines MVP.
