Starting October 1, 2015, Delta has made a policy change to the entrance policy for those entering their Delta Sky Club locations. Previously, you would need to show a photo ID, along with your membership card or credit card, but to “improve the customer experience” agents will no longer be asking for a photo ID.
I think this is a great change as we move into the digital world. Whenever I access the SkyClub, I just give the agent my phone to scan me in, so no longer having to pull out my ID will save a few seconds. I always found it strange that they asked for ID’s to get into the SkyClub, but to board a plane, they never ask for your ID.
How To Get Access:
There are many credit cards which provide access to the Delta SkyClubs including the renovated one at LAX. As reminder both the American Express Platinum Card as well as the Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN provide complimentary SkyClub access.
When it comes to Delta co-branded credit cards, the Delta Reserve American Express provides complimentary SkyClub access, where the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card and the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card offer SkyClub access at a reduced $29 per person charge.
What do you think about this latest change? Have you flown this week since the new policy, what was your experience?
