 What is Delta Seat Upgrade?

Delta Airlines is expanding the number of seats that can be upgraded from economy to premium, but what does Delta seat upgrade mean? And how will it affect you as a customer?
Delta is not changing the size of its planes, it is simply allowing certain customers to purchase an additional seat at a higher price. Effective January 2, 2015, Delta will allow travelers who have purchased tickets in advance to replace their basic economy seat with an extra seat in first class at no additional fee. It will be similar to the upgrades offered by American and United airlines.
