ATLANTA – Delta Air Lines is adding its so-called “Economy Comfort” section, which it previously added to long-haul international flights, to its entire mainline fleet and more than 250 two-class regional jets.
The new section, which features seats with more legroom, seats that recline further and priority boarding, was available on long-haul international flights starting this past summer. The seats will be available on more than 550 mainline aircraft — including Boeing 737, 757, 767 and Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft — starting next summer.
“Our goal is to make sure premium customers are sitting in premium seats,” Richard Anderson, Delta’s chief executive officer, said in a news release. “Delta already offers more First Class seats than any other U.S. airline and by expanding Economy Comfort we’ll offer customers even more opportunities to select a premium seat.”
The addition of the “Economy Comfort” section to the mainline fleet is part of a $2 billion investment in services and products, Delta said.
