Delta Air Lines extends Comfort Plus service

Increased leg room and better seats on CRJ-200 flights

Starting from the first day of May, Delta Airlines will introduce their Comfort Plus service on CRJ-200 aircraft. The aircraft will now offer extended leg room and better, more comfortable Economy Class seats.

Delta Air Lines offers service on almost every aircraft

In addition to its two-cabin aircraft, Delta Air Lines will now offer travelers Comfort Plus on nearly all single-cabin planes in their fleet. The airline has already modernized their cabins, including access to Wi-Fi on nearly all flights, new seats, seatback entertainment systems and overhead bins.

“Choice is important to our customers, so it is important for us to give them the ability to tailor their experience,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President. “With the addition of Delta Comfort Plus on the CRJ-200s, customers now have a product choice on almost every Delta aircraft.”

The service was introduced in March 2015 as part of a multi-billion dollar investment to better the customer experience. It includes Sky Priority boarding with dedicated overhead bin space and complimentary premium beverages on flights over 250 miles.

The service has shown encouraging results so far. In January, the airline reported a nearly 4.4 billion dollar profit for the year 2016.

Delta Air Lines has also made significant investments on the ground level. This is evident with the opening of Delta Sky Club in Denver, Atlanta, and Seattle as well as the renovation of Sky Clubs in Nashville, Dallas, Newark, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Additionally, the second biggest airline in the world plans to add nearly 250 new aircraft to its fleet in the coming years.
