Delta Air Lines to continue capping seats and blocking middle seats until 30-Sep-2020

    Delta Air Lines announced (03-Jun-2020) middle seats and some aisle seats in aircraft with 2×2 seating configurations will continue to be blocked until 30-Sep-2020, in order to promote social distancing. Seating caps will also be extended until 30-Sep-2020, with first class capped at 50%, Main Cabin, Delta Comfort+ and Delta Premium Select at 60% and Delta One at 75%. Automatic, advance Medallion upgrades will also be resumed from 10-Jun-2020 for Delta One in the domestic US, first class and Delta Comfort+, subject to availability and seating caps. Additionally, aircraft are to be upgauged or frequencies increased on services with customer demand that pushes flight loads above seating cap allowances. [more – original PR]
