"seats way too close together"

(United States)

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.

"seats were literally falling apart"

(Netherlands)

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.

"not good for sleeping"

(United States)

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.

"10 hours of agony"

(United States)

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.

"planning on avoiding Delta"

(United Kingdom)

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.

"seats are still very uncomfortably narrow "

(United States)

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.

"seat width is lessened"

(United States)

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.

"quiet and peaceful flight"

(United Kingdom)

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.

"leg room was reasonable"

(United Kingdom)

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.
