    Okay, thanks Terry. That is what I thought. We went ahead and booked the entire family's fares with our AMEX SkyMiles card. Saved them $150 total.

    ...Now if we could get 2 seats together without paying the $59 economy seat upgrade

    I can confirm that this is the policy. $25 first bag, $40 second bag.

    If you have an Amex Delta SkyMiles credit card, the fee is waived on the first bag. This will also apply to anyone traveling on the EXACT same itinerary.

    If you pay for family or friends on your card and like us, they meet up with you in say Atlanta, their fee will NOT be waived nor will they receive Zone 1 boarding. They must fly the exact same route as the card holder.

    I will detail Economy Comfort seating in my trip report. Imo, another rip off unless you have small children and HAVE to be seated together. Otherwise, consider Delta to now have "open seating" and expect to sit in the middle unless you book when the tickets go on sale in the 330 day window.

    Are the Economy Comfort seats worth it if you don't have to pay for them? We usually book the Exit Row for more legroom but are wondering if the EC seats are any better than the Exit Row or about the same?

    If you tell me how much extra legroom there is in an exit row I could probably answer your question. I am guessing they are very very close so only advantage would be location on the plane.

    Delta's website claims for Economy Comfort:
    "
    3-4" (7-10 cm) extra legroom/ Up to 50% more recline on select routes (JFK to/from SFO or LAX, and ATL to/from HNL)"

    Am I correct in reading that the
    extra legroom IS all EC and extra recline is JFK-SFO or LAX & ATL-HNL only ?

    Our flights, we had two different versions of 757's for our flights.

    ATL -AUA exit row we had movable armrests, reclining seats as well as seat back entertainment.

    AUA-ATL exit row we had stationary armrests and NO seat back entertainment. Don't know about recline on that leg.

    Leg room was terrific and the same on both planes. http://www.seatguru.com has apparently udated some configurations with EC but not all

    I do know that EC -- US to the Caribbean has
    no complimentary beer, wine, and spirits

    Advantage of EC, you will be near the front of the plane and as I mentioned previously, MUCH easier to get assigned seating with the rest of your party. For Aruba we usually do not mind sitting middle or back of the plane since unless we are flying business class we have to wait on luggage anyway.

    Maybe Chadd knows exit row legroom in inches for comparison.

    Thanks for the update! I know I keep looking at SeatGuru.com and keeping WAITING for them to update the plane/seat info....but nothing yet.

    Wish I knew exactly how many extra inches you get in the exit row - all I can say is that it's enough to make me happy. LOL!!

    We have EC seats on our MSP-ATL leg (wanted to be closer to the front for the connection) and then exit row seats on the ATL-AUA leg so it'll be interesting to compare the two. Of course, I'm hoping for the FC upgrade that my hubby usually gets for being Gold Medallion (fingers crossed.)

    I am going to send you one of those mini- tape measure key chains so you can measure it

    Delta allows 1 bag free on international flights. We flew to Aruba from Boston and were not charged.
