    Can anyone tell me if there is a listing of the charges for EC? I know it is "priced" based on distance but when booking nothing is shown prior to purchase that I have seen. It would been better to know in advance as well as to verify that the correct discount for Medallion status has been applied.

    I do not think there's a direct list anywhere...

    Call your elite line and ask.

    This may be a good opportunity for those who purchased EC to report back to this thread their route, cost, etc...
    This may provide a benchmark for peoples expectations.

    This doesn't make sense unless DL is pricing eastbound overnight flights higher than westbound daytime flights. The distance and flying time seem very similar with perhaps MUC being slightly farther.

    Should we assume that these are prices for nonelites?

    Yes, I gave the full price. Different aircraft, overnight vs. daytime, etc. are clearly all factors. The A330 (ATL-AMS) actually has 4 more EC seats.

    I had understood and remembered the initial announcements to suggest that the prices would be based on distance (only).

    And it's clearly not flight time instead of distance. ATL-AMS is 8:55 duration vs. MUC-ATL which is 10:35.

    I agree that my impression was that it would be distance-based, but here's the wording on the Delta blog entry dated 2/7/11 announcing the product:

    In case anyone doesn't understand what they are saying, I translated it from Delta'ese: We will charge as much as we can get away with.
