I had the honor and pleasure of being invited to the official ribbon cutting event at the new Delta Sky Club — which is located adjacent to the food court and near and gate B18 and the main escalators on Concourse B at the international airport which serves the greater Atlanta metropolitan area — on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.
As is always a problem with me, I…
Sometimes you get to do some cool things in life — maybe apparently not as cool as getting a Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card, as has been plastered in articles all over BoardingArea this morning — but the Delta Sky Club on Concourse D at the international airport in Atlanta officially opened on Monday, August 22, 2011, which is five years ago today.
I was fortunate to be one of the people honored with cutting the ribbon in dedication of that official grand opening, as…
“I decided on the chicken noodle soup over the black bean soup here at the Delta Sky Club on Concourse E at the international airport in Atlanta to tide me over until my flight to Amsterdam later this afternoon on my way to Nairobi. That, and some romaine lettuce, a mixture of olives, carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and a couple of chocolate chip cookies. The soup was nice and hot; but it could have used more noodles…”
That was the beginning of my report back on Monday, February 2, 2015; and I understand that there are some more food options available in that Sky Club. My informal report of the Delta Sky Club at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Thursday, February 12, 2015 included enjoying real bagels instead of those balls of half-cooked dough paste with a hole in them to be sacrilegiously passed off as bagels.
Both of those Sky Clubs were furnished nicely with some food options with which you can barely scrape together a meal. The service at the front counters is usually very good. I even was one of the people who actually cut the ribbon at the Delta Sky Club on Concourse D at the international airport in Atlanta when it was opened…
…so would I pay $59.00 to visit a Sky Club for only one time?
The answer is no. I will explain why — but first, a little recent history is in order…
FlyerTalk member brillb wanted to propose to fellow FlyerTalk member lvp1531 in a special way to marry him, but he was uncertain at first on just how to do it. However, with a little help and a lot of cooperation from his new friends at Delta Air Lines, he decided to meet her in the Delta Air Lines Sky Club at the same Terminal E concourse at the airport in Atlanta where they first met three years prior, and then propose to her on an empty Delta Air Lines Boeing 767-400 aircraft in the BusinessElite cabin.
Find out for yourself if A Medallion Wedding Proposal will — ahem — ring a bell with you…and yes, there are photographs of the actual engagement.
Forget about the movie Up in the Air — the only two people who actually feel like they are up in the air right now are brillb and lvp1531 with their touching and heartwarming real-life story. The Gate congratulates them and wishes them all the best, with many years of happiness!
…and that stinks, according to some Delta forum FlyerTalk members.
As Seen in the Sky Club: DL’s Fake Cheese!, the “fake cheese” is actually processed cheddar cheese food.
However, FlyerTalk members did not just cheese it when that topic was exhausted, as they started slicing into other food products offered in Delta Sky Club lounges.
Is the fare offered in Delta Sky Clubs really toast, or are their stories full of holes?
