AT LAST! This is what we have been begging for, Delta, ever since you took away choice and made C+ seats an “upgrade”. The choice to opt-out of a center seat that is no bigger than the rest of coach.
Thank you, Delta – Keep Climbing!
Alaska, as we all should know, simply does not upgrade you to a middle seat unless you are traveling with a +1 but at least this gives us a choice.
I know from some sources that Delta HVCs in surveys have been brutal in their feedback about being moved from a perfectly good aisle exit row seat to a middle C+ seat and then not able to switch back.
The bottom line is this upgrade box, if expanded system wide, would put the choice square in the hands of the passenger and you would have to accept either “any” C+ seat or only if a window or aisle C+ seat opens up.
What do you think. Is this, at long last, THE fix for the ridiculous middle seat upgrade mess? – René
