BASIC ECONOMY SEAT ASSIGNMENT FEE

Seat assignments can be purchased in advance for a fee or will be assigned for free at the airport after check in or at the gate. At this time, seat assignments can be purchased via Reservations, Airport Customer Service, Delta.com, and the FlyDelta App.  

The seat selection fee is per seat, per flight segment and is subject to availability. At this time, seat assignment purchase is only available for wholly domestic flights. Aircraft and seat features differ according to flight type/destination/aircraft.  Please note that any fees paid for a seat assignment are non-refundable, non-transferable, and are limited to “select seats” – preferred seats cannot be purchased.  

With the Basic Economy fare, you are not guaranteed a seat next to traveling companions, including family members or groups. We reserve the right to assign or reassign a Basic Economy 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. 

You will not be able to change or refund your ticket after the Risk-Free Cancellation period. Passengers are not eligible for paid or complimentary access or upgrades to premium seats or products from Basic Economy, including to Delta Comfort+® or Preferred Seats; and no paid access to Priority Boarding. Exceptions may apply when flying Light or Economy Light on non-Delta operated flights.

SkyMiles Members can earn Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) and applicable mileage accruals for purchases of Basic Economy seat assignments when purchased through a Delta channel including delta.com, Fly Delta mobile app, Delta Reservations, Delta kiosks, and select Delta airport locations (featuring an electronic document number beginning with “006”). Miles and MQDs cannot be awarded when the SkyMiles number(s) is not included in the purchase transaction. Miles and MQDs may only be earned by the Member(s) traveling whose name(s) and SkyMiles number(s) is included in the reservation.
