For as long as we've been flying, there have been certain Economy Class seats that most travelers seem to prefer. We call them: Preferred Seats.
Medallion® members and customers purchasing Y, B, or M Economy Class tickets will continue to enjoy complimentary access to Preferred Seats at the time of booking and all the way up to departure. But now, non-Medallion members can purchase these seats 24 hours prior to departure.
Preferred Seats include:
Step 1) Book a flight.
Medallion members can book any Economy fare. Non-Medallion members can book any Y, B, or M Economy Class ticket.
Step 2) Select a Preferred Seat at time of ticket purchase.
Preferred seats are available at no additional cost. Or, visit My Trips, if you already have a ticket. M Economy Class tickets can select complimentary Preferred Seats when checking in.
Step 3) Settle in and relax.
Enjoy your flight from one of the best seats in Economy.
Step 1) Book a flight.
Book any non-Y, non-B, or non-M Economy Class ticket.
Step 2) Purchase a Preferred Seat during check-in.
You can check in through delta.com or a Delta airport kiosk 24 hours in advance and select any available Preferred Seat.
Step 3) Pay the applicable Preferred Seat fee.
Fees vary by seat location and flight destination.
*Passengers needing special assistance should contact an agent. Those seated in the bulkhead row may be reassigned to accommodate passengers with disabilities. Refunds are automatically issued if a similar seat is not assigned.
Preferred Seating is offered on Delta and Delta Connection® flights, subject to availability. Except with respect to Basic Economy fares, Preferred Seats are complimentary for Medallion® members, SkyTeam® Elite and SkyTeam® Elite Plus members, Alaska Airlines MVP® and MVP® Gold members and their companions when they are booked within in the same reservation. Preferred seats are also complimentary for customers that have purchased full Y, B and M fares. Preferred Seats in select markets will be available for sale 24 hours prior to departure through the check-in window to non-Preferred Seat eligible customers. Fees will be charged per customer per segment. Customers seated in the bulkhead row may be reassigned to accommodate passengers with disabilities. Refunds will be issued to any reassigned customer if the customer is not moved to a comparable or better seat. Effective for Preferred Seat purchases on and after May 2, 2013, if a customer voluntarily changes his/her flight or seat selection once purchased, a refund for the original seat purchase will not be provided. Prices may vary. All SkyMiles program rules apply to SkyMiles program membership, miles, offers, mile accrual, mile redemption and travel benefits, respectively.
