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.
I am not sure that I am willing to pay extra money to pick a seat towards the front of the plane. I’d be happy with an aisle seat towards the back.
Preferred Seats are
- Bulkhead seats
- Aisle seats toward the front of the plane
- Window seats toward the front of the plane
- Emergency exit row seats

Preferred Seating is also offered to Medallion members, SkyTeam Elite and SkyTeam Elite Plus members, Alaska Airlines MVP and MVP Gold members.
