"legroom was not very good"

(United States)

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.

"leg room was fantastic"

(United Kingdom)

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.

"had enough leg room"

(Canada)

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.

"seats were not comfortable at all"

(United States)

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.

"seat width was ridiculous"

(United States)

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.

"seats comfortable with good recline"

(Singapore)

SIN-NRT return. Seats comfortable with good recline and seat width. Both sectors with ptv on demand. But I could not locate the USB port on the sector from SIN-NRT.

"seat pitch was tight"

(United States)

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.

"a comfortable experience"

(Australia)

Had a window seat on quite new Boeing 777 on SYD-LAX-SYD. Overall it was a comfortable experience for such a long journey.

"what a joke"

(Netherlands)

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.

"it's all a bit of a con"

(United Kingdom)

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!
