The Delta Sky Club American Express benefit gives you either a discounted rate or free access to Delta Sky Club, depending on your card. The Amex Delta Reserve Credit Card offers complimentary access to Delta Sky Club lounges, and lets you bring up to two guests for $39 each. The Amex Delta Platinum Card doesn’t give you a free pass, but lets you buy single-use Delta Sky Club passes at $39 per visit. You can also bring up to two guests for the same rate.
And there are a few more things you should know before you visit one of Delta’s airport lounges.
Here’s what you should know about Delta Sky Club American Express access:
Delta Sky Club membership normally starts at $545 a year.
There are over 50 Delta Sky Club lounges at airports around the world.
Delta Sky Club amenities include food, alcohol, complimentary Wi-Fi, meeting areas, TVs, magazines, and more.
To use the Sky Club access benefit, you must be traveling on a Delta operated flight.
You must have a same-day boarding pass, and your ticket must match the name on your credit card.
If you are a Platinum Amex Delta cardholder, you must pay for your Delta Sky Club pass with your Amex card to get the discounted rate.
Amex Platinum Delta, and Delta Reserve give you two miles for every dollar you spend in the Sky Club. And you won’t have to pay any foreign transaction fees.
You'll get access Delta Sky Clubs, as well as partner lounges (from fellow SkyTeam Alliance members such as Virgin Atlantic, Air France, and Aeroméxico). So it grants you access to approximately 230 lounges around the world.
Yeah, you definitely get your money's worth. The fact that you don't need to worry about FTF's in the club is a good perk in my book.
