Delta has announced a nice enhancement for Platinum Medallion members flying to/from London allowing them to access Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses regardless of which cabin they’re flying in on Delta or Virgin Atlantic. Diamond Medallions have received access earlier this year.
With this change, Platinum Medallion members including a guest who are traveling on Delta or Virgin Atlantic are now able to access the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse located in Terminal 3 in London-Heathrow.
Starting June 1, 2017, Platinum Medallion Members plus one guest who are traveling in Delta Main Cabin, Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy or Virgin Atlantic Economy cabin are able to access the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse located in Terminal 3 in London-Heathrow. As a reminder, Diamond Medallion Members began receiving the same level of Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse access on February 16, 2017.
The full suite of London-Heathrow lounge benefits for SkyMiles Medallion Members and Delta One® customers are as follows:
- Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members traveling in Delta Main Cabin, Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy or Virgin Atlantic Economy cabin and passengers traveling in Delta One or Virgin Atlantic Upper Class are all eligible to access both the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse and No1 Lounges, Heathrow, both located in Terminal 3.
- Gold Medallion Members traveling in Delta Main Cabin, Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy, or Virgin Atlantic Economy cabin are eligible to access No1 Lounges, Heathrow.
- All Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members receive complimentary access to the Virgin Atlantic Revivals Lounge upon arrival at London-Heathrow Airport regardless of cabin of travel. The Revivals Lounge is also complimentary for Delta One and Virgin Atlantic Upper Class passengers.
- Diamond, Platinum, and Gold Medallion Members also enjoy access to the SkyTeam lounge located in Terminal 4.
There’s been some back and forth with what lounges Medallions can use in London, so it’s nice to see that Platinum Medallions will be able to use the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at LHR regardless of cabin that they’re flying in. Don’t forget if you are looking for more ways to earn Delta miles, the offerings for both the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express and the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express that are available right now.
