This is my first visit to the Philadelphia SkyClub since their renovation. Delta re-opened the SkyClub on April 3, 2011 after being closed for over 18 months.
The entrance is a cool white hallway just past the food court inside terminal D security.
The front desk agents welcome repeat customers by name. Nice touch Delta and SkyClub agents.
Walking past the check-in desk to the left, you’ll find a small seating area. Just past the new red chairs is a full self service bar complete with the usual snacks of crackers, cheese, olives, humus and other munchies. The self service bar is just another extension of Delta’s strategy to allow the traveler as much, or as little, human interaction that is desired. Thank you, I’ll pour myself a cold Heineken or perhaps a gin on the rocks with olives.
There are three large flat screen TVs near the self service bar to catch up the latest game.
The SkyClub has three distinct seating areas excluding the entrance. There is a main room near the bar with another flat screen TV. Then a nice business area with additional seating is located past the bar.
For the quiet types, there is a small hallway with seating area that has no TVs and is generally more quiet.
This SkyClub isn’t the largest but they are friendly and have everything you’ll need. In addition, they are donating 10% of new sign up fees to the Fisher House Program for the month of July. The Fisher House supports America’s military in time of need.
The best part, no experiment required for this Platinum upgrade to pay off.
