Hi All

In a few weeks I will be travelling LHR - JFK on a Delta 764, then a few weeks later MIA - LHR again on a Delta 764; both in Y.

Delta advertise their Economy Comfort for £49 per leg, for this you get a few extra inches in seat pitch, more recline and free alcoholic drinks.

Has anyone tried this product?, is it worth the extra money?. Any advice gratefully received.

Cheers

Andy

I got an exit row Economy Select seal last week on a 763, which was very pleasant. The 'regular' Economy Select seats didn't look very different to the standard ones, the extra pitch was barely noticeable, but if you can select an exit row for £49 then I would suggest taking this option as it did make for a nicer eight hour flight.

My friend was seated in EC on her flight to Dubai. She said unless you are seated in a bulkhead it really isn't any better than regular Y, except the free drinks.

I did DTW-AMS-DTW in Economy Comfort in a 744 and 333 in June. Best $120 I ever spent on travel. I couldn't care less about the banal tasteless food (especially DTW-AMS) or even the fact that the AVOD didn't work in my seat on the 333 (none on the 744 of course) but the extra 5-6 inches of legroom and recline made for a much more comfortable journey for me. If your tall or want a bit more room to stretch out then I recommend it. If you don't usually feel cramped in Y then probably isn't worth it.

It is nowhere near a World Traveler Plus type product just regular economy service with extra leg room. DL serve free beer and wine in Y in anycase during the meal, comfort gets you spirits and drinks during the flight, though finding a crew member to serve you outside of meal times can be challenge...where do they hide?

Andy -
Since you are flying on a 764 there is no exit row seats in Economy Comfort. If bulkhead row 15 is available on your flights you do enjoy the extra legroom with no seat in front of you. The exit row is 30 and is reserved for SkyMiles elite members to select until airport check-in. If you opt to not select Y+ pick a 2 seat pair in the forward compartment.
As noted, the food is the same, you gain 4" of seat pitch and 9" of recline with free cocktails in addition to beer and wine.
I rode in row 15 and liked that I was off the plane quickly to get in line for customs, and had no complaints about food, drink or crew.
It would be easy to spend your money because I enjoyed the service and extra "perks" Economy Comfort provided; however, $78.49USD each way is money maybe more well spent once you've landed in the U.S.
I hope you have a nice ride on DL, and that you enjoy your visit. Hopefully Florida and MIA will cool off a bit soon.

As others have said, only benefit is extra legroom and recline. You theoretically get free cocktails (as opposed to just the free beer and wine that everyone gets), but the FAs certainly weren't generous with them. Just the usual 2-3 drink runs and that was it.

I thought it was okay, but probably wouldn't pay for it (I got it free as a KLM platinum member). On the A330, there are huge boxes under the seats (and those that don't have them, have very narrow spaces for your feet), so I don't think you get to stretch out that much regardless.

Get your self a SkyClub Daypass its worth more... i did that instead of spending $ 50.- for a seat that didn't look more comfy to me, than the regular Y seats.
