Upgrades to Follow Delta Lounge Price Increase

Earlier this month, when Delta announced that it was raising the price of annual Sky Club lounge memberships by 54 percent, many travelers responded with raised eyebrows and a gruff "For what?"

Perhaps in response to that question, Delta today posted the following announcement on its Taking Off blog:


At the Delta Sky Club, we are continuing to invest in improving your experience. We're pleased to announce the launch of our new test offering a fresh menu of complimentary food, a variety of new beverages and exciting complimentary services in 10 Clubs across the country between mid February and late April.

Among the specifics Delta mentions:

  • Pancakes and "upgraded" bagels for breakfast, sandwiches and hot soups mid-day, and hors d'oeuvres, antipasti, and dessert choices in the evening
  • Shoe shines, manicures, and chair massages
  • Finlandia vodka

Customer feedback on the new features will determine which are included in a systemwide lounge upgrade promised for this summer.
