Don’t be surprised when you see velvet ropes outside of Delta Sky Club Lounges at the airports this year. There have been issues with overcrowding at many of the Delta lounges in key destinations. Hence, eligible travelers with access to the Sky Club will be prioritized according to their membership.
Priority Access To Delta Members
The following is a list of Sky Club members who will gain priority access to the Sky Club lounges when overcrowding occurs:
- Delta One business-class flyers.
- Delta 360 invite-only elites.
- Delta Diamond Medallion top-tier passengers.
- Delta First Class flyers (with lounge memberships).
Many of these groups already have priority boarding on flights, now they’ll enjoy the same treatment at the airport lounges.
Delta has already implemented a trial of prioritizing entry into Sky Clubs within the Atlanta airport, according to a representative of Delta: “Following a successful operational test in Atlanta, Delta Sky Club will roll out dedicated entry lanes in a phased approach at select airports. These entry lanes are just one of a continual range of enhancements designed to ensure our most frequent fliers and Delta Sky Club guests have a great experience on the ground and in the air.”
