I flew Delta Air Lines’ Comfort+ cabin on a recent trip to Madrid (MAD). Located in the first few rows of the aircraft’s main cabin, Comfort+ offers passengers special perks including priority boarding, dedicated overhead bin space and extra legroom.
I was one of the first passengers in the priority section to board and quickly made my way to my aisle seat. The cabin had a 2-3-2 configuration and I was seated in the middle section, next to a couple. I put my suitcase in the dedicated overhead bin and settled in for the flight.
The temperature in the cabin was perfect and I was comfortable using the provided blanket and pillow. Not long after take-off, flight attendants came through with hot towels and a food menu. Meals consisted of lunch, a snack and a light meal just before landing. I opted for chicken with risotto for lunch. Airline food gets a bad rap, but I thought Delta’s offerings were flavorful.
The flight was just less than nine hours, so I wanted to get some sleep and watch a couple movies. There were plenty of entertainment options to choose from. I decided on Phantom Thread, Lady Bird and The Commuter.
Unfortunately, I was seated behind a mother and adult daughter who complained to flight attendants, dropped trash, got in and out of their seats and frequently reclined their seats for the majority of the flight. I was happy they were not on the next leg of my trip.
Other than the annoying seatmates, I enjoyed my experience in Comfort+ and would recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a main cabin upgrade.
