I spend a bunch of time in Skyclubs. Before I became a Delta Diamond Medallion, and got free access, I still got in at no charge thanks to my Delta AMEX Reserve card. I would not need to show my physical AMEX card as I correctly have it entered into “MY DELTA” so when they scanned my boarding pass they would see I was a card holder. Having this in my record correctly also ensures that I get more Delta upgrades as the Reserve card is one of the tiebreakers for upgrades 🙂 !
But I also, each time I entered a club, had to present my ID. For the longest time I just showed my digital ID in my phone that is a scan of my ID. That worked until someone sent a memo that said no more. Really frustrating. Well that frustration, and producing a “real” ID, is now over as of tomorrow.
I reached out to Delta about this change and was told:
“To improve the customer experience on Oct. 1  Delta Sky Club is modifying its requirements for entry. Customers will still be required to show a valid Delta Sky Club membership card, same-day boarding pass or other required credentials. ID checks for bar drinks will still be required.” – Anthony Black Delta Air Lines
This is a 100% KeepClimbing change and I am most pleased to see this. While I have never been “carded” at the Sky Club bar before, I have a sinking feeling that the clubs that do NOT have bar tenders (i.e. open bar) may still ask for you ID when you check-in if you look underage. Call that one developing.
Also, I am guessing, some reps may not see the memo but over the next week or so this should become common knowledge with all the Sky Club reps.
Are you as happy as I am about this, small, but time saving change? – Rene
