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 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 earning miles in the SkyMiles® Program, earning credit towards Medallion Status; 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. Miles and MQDs will not be awarded for seat fees.
