I had the opportunity to visit the new Delta SkyClub in Atlanta’s Terminal E on a recent trip to Brussels, Belgium. This was part of the same trip where I caught the Air France A380 in Business Class back to DC.
The old Delta lounge options in Terminal E included a legacy Business Elite lounge and a regular Delta SkyClub. In recent years both lounges offered the same amenities and were right next door to each other. So it was nice to see the two lounges be combined into a new larger space.

Sky Club Entrance
The old Business Elite lounge entrance is the new entrance of the combined SkyClub. The old SkyClub entrance (across from McDonalds) is the combined SkyClub shower entrance. I like that the new Terminal F and Terminal E SkyClubs have a separate entrance just for showers because you can drop in, clean up and get on to your next flight.
Once you enter, you’ll notice the new modern decor of the SkyClub. The desk on the left will check you in. The desk to the right will handle flight related questions.
The SkyClub has plenty of seating but I noticed the seats near the bar and snack area was the most crowded.
Terminal E SkyClub
The Bar in the new Terminal E SkyClub has high top tables and chairs. There are several televisions displaying the latest games and news of the day. A great place to have a drink while watching a game or catching up with a friend.
I mentioned this SkyClub has plenty of seating and I didn’t have any trouble finding a quiet spot to relax. The picture below is of the quiet room where they have really comfy lounge chairs available on a first come first serve basis.
The area next to the quiet room was almost completely empty. This area has sleek new chairs and plenty of space to spread out and recharge your batteries before a long flight.
The coolest seats we saw were in a blocked off area. Each of these areas had about four seats which would be a perfect location for a small family or group traveling together.
A quick tour of the shower facility and we were impressed. If you’ve been to the new Terminal F SkyClub these shower facilities will look very familiar to you. The showers are brand new and feel very clean. The SkyClub is still using a very generic bath product but I heard they are working on improving this during my visit to the International Terminal on opening day.
After catching up on work, I left the lounge to catch my flight to Brussels in Delta’s new lie-flat Business Class. We couldn’t wait to get try out the new Business Class product and get to Brussels to try some of the best beers in the world.
The combined old Business Elite club lounge and SkyClub in Terminal E was a great decision. One observation is that the food selection in SkyClubs for international passengers could be improved, but they totally make up for the lack of food in the SkyClub with the food onboard. We’ll share a very detailed review of the food service in Delta’s new lie-flat Business Class in our next trip report.
Delta’s investment in the new Atlanta SkyClub is very visible. The quiet place to catch up on work and relax before a long flight to Brussels enhanced my travel experience.
