Get Acquainted With Delta's Five New Classes of Services

The airline will shake things up in March.

To compete with low-cost carriers like Spirit and Frontier, Delta is introducing five separate seat classes. Starting with beyond basic to ultra luxury, the airline hopes to capture every kind of flier in the sky. Here's how the classes will shake out when they debut in March:

Basic Economy
-Tickets are non-refundable
-There's no assigned seats
-These passengers are seated last
-Free drinks 
-WiFi service (though it's not clear if it's gratis or not)
-Prices are the lowest

Main Cabin Economy
-Seats can be chosen in advance
-Some flight changes and cancellations are allowed (though there's likely a fee attached)
-Seated second to last

Comfort +
-Priority boarding
-Dedicated overhead space
-Four inches more of legroom than the economy classes
-Free cocktails and "premium snacks"
-Long flights get meals, a sleep kit, and extra room to recline
-A New York to L.A. flight even includes a snack wrap with frozen yogurt

First Class
-Pre-takeoff snacks and drinks
-Meals on flights longer than 900 miles and premium snacks for those longer than 250 miles
-Dedicated overhead space
-New quilted seat covers

Delta One
-Priority seating

-Tumi travel kit
-Westin-provided bedding
-Chef-curated menus
-Lay-flat beds
-Obviously, these usually require a shiek's credit card or a corporate raider's expense account
