More seating changes from Delta

The US mega-carrier Delta is making more changes to its seat allocation procedures in an effort to give more space for safer travel by blocking the sale of select aisle and window seats on additional aircraft, capping seating at 50 percent in First Class and 60 percent in Main Cabin, Delta Comfort +, and Delta Premium Select to reduce the overall number of customers in every cabin across the fleet.

This change, which is effective through June 30, is the most recent addition to a number of health and safety measures we’ve taken to promote a safe flying experience for customers and employees.

Blocking More Than the Middle

While middle seats have been blocked from sale on all flights since mid-April, Delta will now also block select window and aisle seats in all cabins on aircraft configured with 1x2, 2x2 and 2x3 seating. Seat blocks for narrowbody and regional jet aircraft will launch this week; blocks for the two-seat sections of widebody aircraft will be visible in the coming weeks. This measure expands our seat blocking practices to Delta’s entire operating fleet, including mainline and regional Delta Connection aircraft.

When booking your future seat selection via the Fly Delta app or online, blocked seats will be shown as unavailable or not assignable. Customers who prefer to be seated directly next to their travel companions or who need additional assistance are encouraged to talk to an agent upon arriving at the gate.
