    Would you pay a fee for a desirable, preferred seat on your flight?

    Delta is now offering the option to pick a Preferred Seat 24 hours before your departure on select international flights.
    This option is now available for flights to and from London, Barcelona & Tokyo-Narita and many others.
    Preferred seats can be purchased for as little as $39 per segment or you can get complimentary access when booking a Y or B economy class ticket.

    See the fine print at the bottom of http://www.delta.com/traveling_chec....jsp?MkCpgn=EMTNUPAA001397020712111614-A01A-A

    Economy Comfort is only free to PMs and DMs (with discounts for GMs and FOs), but access to preferred seating at check-in for a charge is what this announcement is about. Preferred seating remains available for free to the categories I listed above.

    It actually states that preferred seating is available 24 hours in advance, not just at check-in for a fee.

    It's available through the checkin process, which becomes available 24 hours in advance.
