NEW YORK (AP) -- Delta Air Lines will offer a premium economy section on international flights this summer with more legroom and room to recline -- at an additional cost of $80 to $160 each way.

The new seats will be available for flights starting in May.

Top-tier frequent fliers and customers that buy full-fare
economy tickets will be able to sit in the roomier seats with no extra charge. Lower-level frequent fliers will get discounts on the seats.

The seats, located in the first few rows of coach, are similar
to those offered by Delta Air Lines partner Air France-KLM. Those who pay extra for the seats will also get to board early and get free alcoholic drinks during the flight.
