Delta Extends Middle Seat Blocking for More Space Until January 2021   

Delta is extending one of its key health and safety protocols, by blocking the selection of middle seats and limiting the number of customers per flight through at least January 6, 2021.

The selection of middle seats is blocked in Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+® and Main Cabin in GDSs, via the Fly Delta app and online. As well as giving customers more space on board, Delta is offering flexibility with seat choices:

  • For customers in parties of 1-2: Middle seats are blocked for safety.
  • For customers in parties of 3 or more: Middle seats will appear as available for booking, to allow families and travel companions to select seats together.

Delta is also continuing to ensure flights are not filled to capacity. For travel through at least October 31, the airline will limit the number of customers on board all aircraft – with or without middle seats.

On routes where planes begin to fill, Delta will continue to look for opportunities to upsize to a larger aircraft type or add more flights.

Greater flexibility

As customers consider upcoming travel, flexibility is more important than ever. That’s why Delta is also extending our change fee waiver for new flights purchased through September 30, 2021.

To make it easier for you to help your customers, Delta has launched an Exception Policy Finder online.
