Terms & Conditions

Delta Comfort+ seating is offered on Delta's two-cabin aircraft, subject to availability. Features differ according to flight type/destination/aircraft. Domestic flights offer up to 3 more inches of legroom and international flights offer up to 4 more inches than the standard Main Cabin seat. Increased recline is offered on all long-haul international flights 6.5+ hours and flights operating between JFK to / from LAX. Complimentary beer, wine, and spirits are offered in Delta Comfort+ on all flights that offer beverage service in the Main Cabin; in addition, complimentary beer, wine, and spirits are offered in the Main Cabin on all long-haul international flights. Delta Comfort+ offers complimentary premium content via Delta Studio, premium snack options on flights 900 miles and greater as well as select routes under 900 miles, and dedicated overhead bin space. Dedicated overhead bin space is subject to availability. Delta Comfort+ fees are charged per customer per segment. Except with respect to Basic Economy fares, SkyMiles Medallions and select partner airline elite members and up to eight companions traveling on the same reservation may be eligible for complimentary Delta Comfort+ within a specified time prior to departure based on their status within the applicable complimentary window. Complimentary Delta Comfort+ seats are not available for selection by any passenger while onboard the aircraft regardless of status or fare class. Basic Economy fares are not eligible for paid or complimentary Delta Comfort+, regardless of Medallion or other elite status.  If the Medallion or partner airline elite member is no longer traveling on their original reservation, any companions traveling on the original reservation will no longer be eligible for complimentary Delta Comfort+ seating, and their Delta Comfort+ seat assignment may be removed. SkyMiles members can earn Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) for purchases of Delta Comfort+ seats when purchased through a Delta channel (featuring a electronic document number beginning with “006”). If a Delta Comfort+ seat is purchased at the airport in Amsterdam (AMS), Mumbai (BOM) or Paris (CDG) for a Delta operated flight, the member will not earn MQDs. MQDs will not be awarded for complimentary access to Delta Comfort+. MQDs may only be earned by the member traveling whose name and SkyMiles number is included in the reservation. We reserve the right to assign or reassign a Delta Comfort+ seat at any time, even after boarding of the aircraft, for operational, safety or security reasons. The final decision resides with the ground staff and operating crew on the day of the flight. Refunds will be issued to any reassigned customer if the customer is not moved to a comparable or better seat and no MQDs will be awarded. If a customer voluntarily changes his/her flight or seat selection once purchased, a refund for the original seat purchase will not be provided and no MQDs will be awarded.

All SkyMiles program rules apply to SkyMiles program membership, offers, miles and MQD accrual, mile redemption and travel benefits, respectively. To review the rules, please visit Membership Guide & Program Rules.
