Last week we shared, New Delta Sky Club Access Policy Changes June 1, 2022, where customers will no only be allowed to enter 3 hours prior to scheduled departure time, and you’ll no longer to use the lounge on arrival (with the exception of Delta One flights).
Delta was making these changes as a way to help with overcrowding in their clubs. However, due to customer feedback, they are backpedaling on one of the changes. Arriving passengers will still be able to use the Delta Sky Club as they do today.
We value your input – and we’ve acted on it. Just as you can today, customers with Delta Sky Club access may continue to use Clubs upon arrival. You can review Frequently Asked Questions for more details on the revised policy:
- Customers will be able to access the Club anytime within three hours of their scheduled departure time (and connecting customers can continue to access the Club at any time during their layover) starting Wednesday, June 1.
- Arriving customers – with or without a connection – will be able to enjoy the Club upon arrival, as you do today.
When it comes to arriving passengers, I can’t imagine that those on an arriving flight are spending that much in the club other than to quickly refresh and grab a snack and then be on their way. It’s great to see Delta realizes this and will continue to allow arriving passengers to use the club.
One thing to note with Delta is if you’re listed standby on an earlier flight, you’ll be allowed to enter the lounge three hours before the standby flight, even though you’re confirmed on a later flight.
