Delta Comfort Class

Last year when I flew to Paris I used miles on Iceland Air's Sega Class. This year I purchased a Delta Economy Comfort seat on the non stop Seattle to Paris flight that use to be operated by Air France.

Economy Comfort states that you get 50% more recline, I can't tell for sure but it does seem a bit more roomy. One thing I can tell you is that there are no in-seat entertainment centers. I heard rumors of this, so my iPad is loaded with books and movies, but I have to say that if you are paying more for "comfort" you should get more than the old style crappy overhead video screens. If you've flown this did you have your own seat back video? My section has just 13 sets of seats in a 2-3-2 config so it feels much more spacious than in the back of the bus. And if you are an Alaska MVP you can get these seats at a discounted rate. You also get to board in zone 1.

Besides that, the food is the same. Not the best I've had on a flight but certainly not the worst. And Delta gives blankets and pillows which are seldom seen any more.

All in all, an easy flight, but it ain't no Sega or Business Class. Also just a tip, CDG has free wi-fi for when you land, but you have to sign up for 15 minute segments.
