I have an upcoming international flight on Delta. Is the economy comfort seat worth paying the extra $80? Thanks.

All you get is a little more leg room and if it's by the emergency exit some of them don't even recline.....

Depends on how long the flight is, how tall you are, and how much it costs.

I have found economy+ very worthwhile going to Asia and sometimes on shorter flights. It can also be worthwhile if it gets you upgraded out of a center seat.

I wouldn't bother paying for that little bit of extra leg room for a domestic flight but if I am on a longer haul/international flight, then it is absolutely worth it.

It all depends how long the flight is and if an increase in your comfort is $80 to you. After a few hours of sitting, the extra legroom really makes a positive difference.

And, as others said, if it gets you out of a middle seat in a 3-3-3 configuration or 3-4-3, it is double worth it.

I'll stand up holding a strap if it saves me $50 on a ticket.

I'd agree with the above - the middle seat can be a nightmare and the $80 might be well worth it.
