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?

Delta Sky Club Rates to Increase As of March 1, 2013

Effective as of March 1, 2013, membership rates will increase for the Delta Sky Club — and the reason for the increase in rates is to continue delivering upgrades and amenities such as opening new Sky Clubs and renovating existing Sky Clubs; removing conference rooms to provide more seating; introducing the Luxury Bar; and the Sky Decks which will open later this year, according to FlyerTalk member DLCorpGuy, who is an official company representative for Delta Air Lines. The following chart illustrates the increase in membership rates for one year effective as of March 1, 2013…
