I am 6' tall and don't have enough knee space to sit without either spreading my legs wide, thus encroaching on my neighbor's space or sliding them both sideways. Being confined to such a space for nine hours is torture. Although I have Platinum status I hardly ever get access to economy comfort seats on the isle or at a window.

Flight from Minneapolis to LAX, I was surprised how small the seats had become. Width is 17" and legroom must of been 31". Recline was terrible. Even worse was when the passenger in front of me reclined, it hit my knees. I'm not tall (5'9") Width was uncomfortable, where you had to keep your arms tucked in from touching shoulders of the passengers next to you- especially in the middle seat. Recently flew an Air Canada flight on a 737-800, and much more comfortable seats -a nd free movies to boot!

Extremely disappointed at the tray table support for laptops. If the person in front of you reclines at all you lose half of the shallow tray table area. and your computer is hanging off the edge halfway. I am typing now from a very precarious position, with my screen bent forward (and at risk of being broken whenever the passenger in front pushes on his seat).

The seats are the hardest and most uncomfortable I've ever experienced in flying, and I've flown a lot. The cushions are unbearably hard. I still have a backache almost 24 hours after arrival. I've flown Delta several times now on the EWR-CDG route. I changed to it from United because the service is much better in many respects. But the seats are simply so awful that my husband and I plan to switch back to United, which has poorer service but more comfortable seats.

I sat in the middle with my son on a flight from Amsterdam to Boston. We were forced to sit in middle seats, as they had just scheduled our new route on the spot. Legroom was not very good, but it was OK if you didn't have a bag under the seat in front of you. Recline was ok for an economy flight. It felt far back enough to the point where I could sleep, which is a rarity for me in economy. The width was alright. Im 5'11 190 lbs and the width was no problem. The screen was easily viewable and could be tipped in and out for better viewing angles. Getting out of the seat was very unpleasant, however. I felt like I was always intruding my neighbors area, especially if they were eating with their tray table open. Overall, it was an ok seat, but it was nothing great. Economy plus is much better in my eyes.

The trays in armrests were broken, sliding to the right to spill any thing kept on it. With backrests kept upright during meals, the tray opens to a tight fit, one needs to breathe in to accommodate the tray, or if one has a big stomach, the meal time is real agony. To complicate matters one only has to ask for a glass of water and coffee at the same time to spill everything to the floor. This is Economy Comfort seat for an extra fee of 84/ return. Furthermore young parents with a small baby sitting at the bulkhead seats were not provided with a bassinette, with the baby placed on the floor. Even the air hostess did not know how to operate the overhead lights. The audio-visual with ear-phones was an apology, as one cannot hear anything even with full volume, to occupy oneself on a 8 hour flight. By the way I am 6' tall and am not overweight. The leg room was fantastic. Delta, please take note, we deliberately paid extra for Economy Comfort to avoid the congested seatings of Economy Class. We travel with Delta frequently.

LAX-SYD return trip. The seat wasn't the most comfortable, but it wasn't the worst ever. With the 15 hour flight, it is rare to find a seat comfortable for 15 hours. Had enough leg room. Width was not too wide. The screen in front was a little small. All in all, it was ok. I wouldn't rave about it, but I wouldn't bag it either. Cabin crew are a hit and miss. Some were nice and friendly, while others looked like they would rather be somewhere else. Their skymiles loyalty program is great.

Economy Comfort seats were not comfortable at all. It was the worst flight in my life, and I've been flying since 1958. The legroom is great, but the regular economy seats on my connecting flights on Air France and Alaska were better, even with less legroom.

McDonalds hard plastic molded seats are more comfortable. Six foot tall average males should not be expected to travel in these seats. The legroom was not the most pressing issue. The seat width was ridiculous. A nine hour flight full of people armpit to armpit in hard uncomfortable slim mini prisons. I now hate delta.

Atlanta to Orlando. Sat in row 39 against the window. Seat pitch was tight but not unbearable. I had good legroom (I'm 5'11") as I put my laptop bag in the overhead. However, the narrowness of the seat was ridiculous. I am not an overweight person, I am athletic and have a broad upper body, I literally had to lean forward for cock-eyed against the window for the entire flight to not be rubbing up against the guy in the center seat who was an average sized man. I have flown many discount airlines, and this by far was the worst experience in a long time. Upgrading to Economy Plus or whatever they call it would be no help because only the seat pitch is different, not the width. I flew to Atlanta on an ex-NW 757-300, sat in row 37 and it was a far more comfortable experience.

Atlanta to Amsterdam in Economy Comfort. What a joke. I am 6'3"and need extra leg room. None what so ever on this flight. There is a metal box under the seat in front of you preventing you from stretching your legs out. The seats are no wider than the economy seats and when the person in front of you reclines they are practically in your lap. This makes it also impossible to get out if you are seating in the middle seat of the plane. The person in front of me was reclined the whole flight and my knees here in the back of her chair for 7 hours.

Seat 17E in economy dis-comfort for overnight JFK to LHR. These seats are supposed to be premium economy but fall well below other airlines premium economy offerings both in seat pitch and comfort. Service is also typical gruff gruel dished out by octogenarians. I really could not appreciate the extra seat pitch and if you read Deltas website it states " UP TO 4 inches extra legroom." It's all a bit of a con and the only real benefit is getting on and off plane a little earlier. The seat itself is akin to a bus shelter bench. Spend your money elsewhere!

Seats way too close together. I'm only 5'-7", and can't imagine anybody larger being able to sit in these seats. Seat in front of me was so close, I was unable to reposition my legs... even tho I had nothing under the seat in front of me. By the end of the flight, my butt was numb and my legs were painful. IFE screen was so close it made my eyes cross. It was a rip-off for Economy fliers... seems deliberately done to force one to pay higher price just to have a reasonable seat.

Amsterdam to Newark. Worst intercontinental flight experience I've ever experienced. Plane was extremely old, the seats were literally falling apart. I asked for a newspaper as there was no IFE and the flight attendant disappeared for the rest of the flight. Luckily I flew KLM on the way back which was a much better experience. First and last time to fly Delta airlines.

Atlanta to Amsterdam. Sat in an outer seat in the middle row which I never enjoy doing. Entertainment system was broken for the entire flight and was practically useless leaving the flight to be more boring than expected. Dinner was alright but breakfast was mediocre and tasteless. These seats are definitely not good for sleeping and you arrive at your destination tired and groggy.

Spent the extra money for Economy Comfort. What an oxymoron. Older Boeing 767 without IFE, adjustable headrest or footrest. 10 hours of agony with seat padding equivalent to a horse saddle. Business seats didn't look much better.

We were sat to the rear of the plane and the journey Orlando to Manchester was freezing - and the aircon unit was so loud that my partner and I could barely hear each other speaking, let alone hear the crew when they spoke to us. Definitely planning on avoiding Delta if I can.

Delta has been making a big deal out of their premium economy, called Economy Comfort. The only differences are a little more legroom and a bit more recline and free alcohol. Seats are still very uncomfortably narrow, no footrest; yes the booze is free but no extra service whatsoever - may not be worth the extra charge for most people.

The front row of economy (plus a few rows after) are labelled "Economy Comfort." These cost a bit more, but are advertised to provide more leg room and recline and free drinks domestically. However, since it is the front row, the tray table is in the armrest and therefore, the seat width is lessened. In addition, the tray table slid out as far as it will go is SO close to your body, you cannot move without the =danger of dumping your food and drink on the floor. I wrote Delta and requested a refund for the extra $120 I spent for this Economy Comfort seat, and it was granted. This was one of the most uncomfortable seats I have ever experienced in flying. DO NOT take first- row Economy Comfort on this equipment. Or probably any front-row seat in economy advertised as such.

This flight was from LHR to JFK and back, both flights were nearly empty making a quiet and peaceful flight. The seats are leather with reasonable recline - slightly reduced on return due to fact that I choose a bulkhead row seat. The seats had adjustable head rests, and reasonable size personal tv screens with free entertainment - I didn't like the touchscreen I prefer airlines that give you a remote control instead.

This plane had recently undergone a refit and was in very good condition. The AVOD system was good and had touchscreen facility - although this touchscreen was very selective when picking up what you were telling it to do! The leg room was reasonable for the cabin class.

I found the 15 hour flight ATL-JNB relatively comfortable, in part to a small passenger sitting in the middle seat. This aircraft is a huge improvement in seat comfort. If you are big,k always go for an aisle in the center section so as to give the middle passenger a choice of who to force up in order to get out and use the facilities every two and a half minutes.

For a night flight these seats are horrible. Ways too little recline. There is a metal box under the seat in front of you blocking leg extension. Nice AVOD system, but since it is a touchscreen your seat jiggles when someone plays games for instance. That is annoying when you try to catch some sleep. No movable armrest on the aisle-side.

For economy class CDG to CVG, the seat was adequate and better than on Air France B747 transatlantic which was very cramped and uncomfortable. I was lucky to have the seat beside me empty and I could lift the arm rest for more room. Aircraft had the large overhead screen (shared with everyone) instead of the private screen in the seat in front of you.

The leather seats in Delta economy from Atlanta to Stuttgart and back were definitely less comfortable then the previous cloth seats. There was little lower back support (thank god for a pillow), the seats do not breath, so as your sitting there, you will sweat through your clothes, and worst of all, the design of the headphones they give and the headphone jack do not allow you to adjust seating position in your seat. One move, and the cheap headphones busted.

Delta's new seats on the Boeing 767-300 aircraft are terrible at best. They are extremely uncomfortable, and aft of the overwing exit rows they are all misaligned with the windows. They do not have winged headrests, and because the windows are misaligned, you cannot rest your head on the wall next to you. Instead of typical recline, the seatback reclines partially and the seat cushion slides forward which in reality, offers less recline than typical economy seats. In addition, the legroom is very poor, except for the exit rows. All PTVs are touch screen, so when the person behind you is using the system it can become very annoying as you feel the tapping throughout the flight.
