I, at long last, this month found the time to follow the advice when a reader ‘schooled’ me about lounge access and got my Lounge Club card in the mail.
How did I get it? As you see in the letter, it is a perk from either the Chase INK BOLD charge card or the Chase INK PLUS credit card. All you have to do is follow the instructions in the rookie post.
There are not that many domestic lounges that this card gives you access to (one of the reasons it took me so long to get around to doing it) and since I 99.99% of the time fly Delta and have access to Skyclubs and Skyteam lounges when I fly internationally I took my time.
But when I saw the new club was opening directly across from the “F” Skyclub in Atlanta I decided I had to pay it a visit (you can only spend so much time on the SkyDeck after all).
I walked in and was SHOCKED. Why? The very nice rep says welcome, scans my card, and says: Lunch will be served in about 15 minutes.
Uh, what? Lunch? Really? Then on top of that you just gotta love that “new lounge smell” right and this one has that.
While no where as large as the Skyclub across the way, it does have some perks over it’s larger cousin.
Having so many treats, a good amount of space and a wide selection of free drinks is just amazing (Delta would up-charge you for just about any of those)!
They have a number of showers and while a bit dark they are nice size and most importantly Delta can learn a thing or two about having good water pressure!
The WiFi speed was fine and view of the airport is as fun from this side as the other. I would even say download speeds are much faster, but uploads slower.
So which is the best club in F? Since I am somewhat on the frugal side, I say the Skyclub as I only get two free visits a year with my Lounge Club card, but I can with either my Reserve card or my Skyclub membership come and go all I want to the Delta ones (but man ya gotta love the view right)! – René
