I was passing through Atlanta today on my way back to New York, and had about 45 minutes to spare, so decided I would head to the Delta SkyClub at A17 which is one of the locations that is testing the new added amenities and food that Delta announced.

Test products and services include:

• More food options, including pancakes and upgraded bagels for breakfast, sandwiches and hot soups mid-day, and hors d’oeuvres, antipasti and dessert choices in the evening.
• Nourishing snack choices, including energy bars, fresh fruit, popcorn, nuts and smoothies.
• Select complimentary services, including shoe shines, manicures and relaxing chair massages — perfect for a busy day of travel.

I was there this evening from about 4:30-5:15pm. When I first arrived they had large bowls of popcorn which you could put in individual bags.

However, by the time I got to it, it seemed almost empty so this must be a popular new choice.

They also had chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies. I know they have chocolate chip cookies normally but I don’t recall if they’ve had oatmeal raisin ones in the past.

Next up were some chocolate chip Clif Bars which I had.

Then at 5pm, the “appetizers” were brought out. They had red peppers as well as mushrooms.

In addition, there was hot soup and tonight’s selection was a choice of either tomato basil or chicken with rice.

 As a reminder the test locations are:

• Atlanta A17 and Concourse F
• Detroit Central
• LaGuardia Terminal D
• Los Angeles
• Seattle
• Miami, Indianapolis, Raleigh-Durham and Dallas-Fort Worth Clubs will participate in a smaller-scale program

Bottom Line

Has anyone else been to a test SkyClub location and experienced the food options? I asked about the sandwiches but were only during lunch.

Comments

  1. Was at A17 today at lunch. The soups were tomato basil and miso. The sandwiches were ham and cheese on a pretzel roll. Nice touch, Delta, and a real differentiator.

  2. After slashing lounge access and raising memberships over $200, this is all they offer? I’d rather grab a craft beer and burger at an airport restaurant and save money in the process.

  3. Delta should be ashamed!!!! Let’s become international Delta. Please send your employers for a quick tour to the SIN, CX, AF, LH, etc.. lounges e see what they serve.

  4. I’ve not tried one of the ‘enhanced’ lounges yet, but just cannot wait to savor an “Upgraded Bagel,” whatever the heck that means.

  5. I was at ATL A17 on Friday at lunch time, and the soups were the same as the ones Scott mentioned. In addition to the ham sandwiches, they had turkey. The sandwiches seemed to be very popular, as the attendants had to restock them every few minutes. It’s worth mentioning that the sandwiches and the soup were not where the normal snacks are. They are up the stairs in the back part of the lounge.

  6. I went through SEA during dinner and then DTW during breakfast. SEA soups were tomato and Italian wedding, while there were also peppers, olives and mushrooms. The Italian wedding wasn’t that great and the other products were totally picked over.

    For snack options, they had chocolate and caramel popcorn, which was a change since the last time I went through that club. Other than that, no other changes in SEA.

    DTW had a fairly nice fruit salad to go with their standard oatmeal and bagel options. I didn’t see an “upgraded” bagel experience, unless Delta is counting adding new jams and nutella as an “enhancement.”
