Delta Restricts Lounge Access, Will United and AA Follow?

Because gutting the Skymiles program twice without notice just was not enough, Delta Air Lines used this fine Friday to announce a major devaluation of its Sky Club lounge access policy. Oh, you have a guest? That will be $29. Will United Airlines and others follow the trendsetting ...

Delta SkyClub Policies: Good For Employees, Bad For Customers

Being a long time NWA flyer, I am still accustomed to the old NWA culture and customs. Each time I come across a nuance, I’m thrown through a loop, especially when I have a hard time wrapping my head around it. This week when flying to Maine, I encountered another round of irregular ...

2013-01-03-06.10.00

The Skyclub Manila is probably the most dated and one of the worst International Delta Skyclubs in the system. Although international airline clubs tend to be of higher rankings and have better amenities than domestic clubs, this is only because they have to compete with 4 and 5 star ...

LAX SkyClub Is Currently A Mess, But is Receiving A Rhytidectomy (Facelift)

2012-11-05-22.11.13

The LAX Delta Skyclub is probably one of my least favorite clubs that I use to be a regular to. Thankfully, I’ve moved away from LA to San Diego, so I rarely find myself at the LAX airport, but from time to time I do pass through and stop by the club. Normally if the Alaska Boardroom is ...

Delta Middle Seat Love

screen-shot-2012-05-01-at-2.47.01-pm

I had a flight on Monday using same-day confirmed (awesome Diamond perk), but flying standby because the flight I wanted was oversold.  As soon as I arrived at the SkyClub they confirmed my seat, which was ironic because five minutes earlier the gate agent said it was impossible.  ...

Earlier this week, I paid a quick visit to the new Delta SkyClub at SeaTac Airport in Seattle.  The lounge was a big improvement from the legacy Northwest Club at SeaTac, though this new location is nothing over the top.

The lounge is located in the South Satellite, upstairs from where ...

Delta Sky Zone: A Lounge for the Kids!

delta-sky-zone

Yesterday, Delta unveiled a new lounge for kids, the Delta Sky Zone. It's basically a kids-only lounge with XBOX 360s, televisions, educational materials, and more. I'm a bit jealous of those kids! I wish our big-boy and big-girl lounges had XBOX 360s in ...
