I'm looking at flying on Delta (I'm Platinum now) from the US to India. I know that there are other options, but I will start my travel really out of New Orleans (my home) and the best way (that I prefer) is to go through Atlanta to Paris to Mumbai.
I'm looking at booking the Class M or higher tickets, which gets me into Premium Economy and code shares with Air France. What is that "hard shell" seat? And, is the food any better or more drinks more often on PE vs regular Economy?
I can see that the seating is much better, but I want to make sure that I'm paying a $500-1000 extra for more than just for seat leg room and pitch.
