Delta is now joining United, American, US Airways and Alaska in charging for some alcoholic drinks in their club lounges. (Are there any other domestic US lounges I'm missing?)
I received the below in an email from Delta:
This seems similar to the offerings at United Clubs (formerly Red Carpet Club and/or Continental President's Club). Basic cocktails are free, with higher end pours available for purchase.
Interesting that Delta chose to use the word "Upgrade" referring to this. Granted, they are offering higher end spirits that were not previously available, but I would imagine some SkyClub members will be dissapointed that not all spirits are complimentary as they were before.
I'm curious who will spring for some Dom in the lounge before jumping on their CRJ flight from JFK or wherever else Luxury Bar is available...
