Delta will be ending its pandemic policy of blocking the middle seat on all flights beginning May 1.
The airline had extended the policy several times throughout the coronavirus pandemic, with the last extension covering the busy spring break and Easter travel periods.
Your peace of mind means the world to us. We’ve extended our middle seat blocks through April 30 to give you more space on board.

According to USA Today, the news is just one of the changes Delta announced, including a return of more in-flight food and drinks beginning April 14.
Alaska Airline is now the only airline blocking middle seats for those seated in ‘premium economy’ only, through May 31.
