Premium International Economy Comfort Class Introduced on Delta Air Lines

Delta Air Lines announced today that a New International Economy Comfort Section for Long-Haul Flights will be introduced this summer, with features that include complimentary alcoholic beverages throughout the flight, additional leg room, slightly more seat recline, a specially designed seat cover, additional complimentary in-flight entertainment options, and in-seat power for electronic devices.

Seats in this new economy class section will cost between US$80.00 and US$160.00, but will be complimentary for Diamond Medallion and Platinum Medallion Delta Air Lines SkyMiles members and up to eight of their companions. Gold Medallion SkyMiles members will be eligible for a 50% discount on these seats, while Silver Medallion SkyMiles members will be eligible for a 25% discount.

    This is really cool. No way Continental/United will get rid of Economy Plus now!

    a) Only a few years late to the party
    b) I agree with Endo in that this really forces United’s hand into keeping E+, which may not have been the case otherwise
    c) Interesting that they charge what amount to Premier and Premier Exec for the upgrades, I hope it is not something United does
    d)United > Delta
