Delta Air Lines stated (23-May-2012) it plans to build on the success of its economy comfort seating on long-haul international flights by selling the premium product on all sectors over 750 miles. This expansion puts economy comfort on all of Delta's dual-class aircraft and is now available for purchase on all mainline domestic and international flights departing on or after 07-Jun-2012. Economy comfort includes three to four inches of additional leg room as well as priority boarding. The product is available in the first three-to-five rows of the economy cabin on more than 550 of Delta's mainline aircraft, including its Boeing 767, 757, 737, MD88, MD90, DC9, A320 and A319 aircraft, and on more than 250 two-class regional jets including the CRJ900, CRJ700, E170 and E175 aircraft types. The expansion of economy comfort is the latest in Delta's more than USD3 billion investment in enhanced global products, services and airport facilities through 2013.  [more - original PR]
