Extra Seat - Personal Comfort
Passengers may wish to purchase an ‘Extra Seat’ for personal comfort during travel. Travel agents may use the following information as a guideline for information regarding purchase of an extra seat for comfort on Delta-marketed flights. For all other itineraries and for additional information regarding purchasing an Extra Seat, travel agents should contact Delta Sales Support for assistance.
Delta does not require a passenger who needs a seatbelt extender or is unable to lower the armrest to purchase an additional seat. However, please be aware that if a passenger impedes on another passenger, they may be asked to move to another location that provides additional space, or in the event of a full flight, be asked to take a later flight with available seating.
To avoid this situation and for the passengers personal comfort, Delta recommends that passengers purchase an additional seat.
Please Note: Delta has the right to charge for all seats occupied.

Basic Economy Fares
Basic Economy fares may not be used to purchase an extra seat ticket because a seat assignment is required and Basic Economy fares do not allow an advanced seat assignment.
The Administrative Service Charge (ASC) for an itinerary change is only paid on the passenger's ticket, not the extra seat ticket.
Wholly Unused Ticket
For wholly unused, nonrefundable tickets, the value of the extra seat ticket may only be used for a new ticket in the passenger's name. The extra seat ticket is not transferable.
Carry-on baggage is ONLY permitted for the passenger and NOT the extra seat. When a passenger purchases an extra seat, they are entitled to checked baggage allowances/restrictions for each ticket/seat.
Whenever possible, assign adjacent seats that are only two abreast, unless there is another passenger traveling.
Please note: Do not assign seats in the exit row. Emergency exit row seats do not have moveable armrests and seat belt extensions are not permitted in the exit row.
If you need assistance assigning two seats together, please contact Global Sales Support or Delta Reservations.
