It was 48 degrees outside on a dreary Sunday afternoon in Boston in late April, and I thought it was a perfect time to visit the Delta Sky Club located between a Starbucks and Gate 18 in the A terminal. The sign for the Sky Club is easy to locate, and the lounge is easy to access using the elevators just behind the sign.Check-in was efficient, and the Agent was friendly, and even giving me a ‘lounge orientation’ after I told her that I hadn’t been to this particular Sky Club before.To the right of check in was the coffee-and-tea station featuring popcorn and cookies, and then a cubicle farm with the vegetable-and-cheese station right outside of the cubicles.On the left hand side, the Sky Club really opened up with the bar area, some tables and chairs, and then the main seating area of the lounge with large screen TVs and plenty of seating.The Sky Club also had a soup-and-salad bar to the right of the bar area, where the salad was iceberg (yuck) and the choice of soup was chicken noodle or minestrone. I chose chicken noodle with some some cheese and crackers on the side.I thought the best food offering in the lounge was the peanut butter cookies, which had chunks of peanuts baked in.Aside from the food there was also a quiet area by the windows. It was empty and had the best views of the ramp area, and various Delta planes parked at gates.Bottom Line:
The Boston Sky Club seemed functional, but the furnishing and atmosphere seemed a little tired, especially when you compare this Sky Club to the fancier Sky Clubs found in Delta’s Atlanta and JFK hubs. It is a perfectly reasonable Sky Club to spend a few hours in, but if you had any more time a quick hop into Boston would be more fun, and more scenic.
