$29 to bring my wife into a $kyPub (i.e. Skyclub) is just CRAZY! Delta really tossed AMEX under the bus with the high end Delta Reserve card by cutting the perk of being able to bring a guest or your family into the club last May 1st. I have a feeling it has cost AMEX membership in the card. My fix, as you can see, is by simply getting my Lisa an add-on non-Delta Platinum American Express card and she gets in free plus so many other perks like the Priority Pass card so we can, when in Atlanta, rather than go to the $kyPub go to “THE CLUB at ATL” that has so many better choices than the $kyPub.
No matter where your gate is, if you are flying out of the main A concourse, you can take the train one or two hops and be right there. Very convenient. Heck, they even have a REWARDS program so you can earn points on top of points say from your Chase Sapphire card for paying your bill!
And all of this leads me to my question for the day. Has Delta, in an effort to eke out every single dollar they can from us, just priced $kyPubs too high. I mean, the snacks are sub-par, the drink choices are cheap, the wifi is often very slow, even with all the changes the clubs are crowded – when is the value just not there? I would much rather spend $29 at a spot like Gorden Biersch than a $kyPub. What about you? – René
