I wrote a few days ago about some of the big changes underway at Delta’s LAX Sky Way project.
Since then, I received more information directly from Delta (including when some brand new gates open) and want to share it with you!
Go to Terminal 3 to Check In
Flying out of LAX soon? Your journey now starts at Terminal 3’s headhouse. That’s where the new check-in stations and security lanes are located. So, tell whoever’s dropping you off at LAX that you want to go to Terminal 3.
Your flight departs from Terminal 2 (at least, for the next several weeks. More on that in a minute.). But Terminal 3 is where you go to check-in.
(“I’m so sad Terminal 2’s security and check-in are closed!” said no one never.)
Delta One passengers, take heart: there is a makeshift Delta One check-in lounge at Terminal 3. That’s where you find Sky Priority check-in, too.
Take a right after clearing security. From there, you can visit the gorgeous new T3 Delta Sky Club (provided you have the proper credentials) or head directly to Terminal 2’s gates. Or if you need to get to the Tom Bradley Terminal, you can catch the bus from gate 21. There’s a Sky Club in T2, too.
Sky Club Update
I touched on this in the previous post. But here’s the skinny on Delta Sky Clubs at LAX.
- The 30,000-square-foot T3 Delta Sky Club is now open.
- The west lounge in T2 will remain open. (There might be some remodeling done at some point.)
- The smaller, east lounge (formerly the Virgin Clubhouse) is closed. No word on what will happen with that space.
Coming Soon: New Gates!
Some of the Terminal 2 overcrowding should subside in late May. Memorial Day is when three gates inside Terminal 3 open: 31A, 31B, and 33.
I don’t know if May 30 is the exact day those gates open or if they debut sometime during the holiday weekend.
Regardless, they’ll be a welcome addition.
Also, can someone please educate me why the gates are arranged 31B –> 31A –> 33 instead of 31A –> 31B — 33? Maybe the signs on top of the jetbridges are incorrect? Or is there a rhyme and reason to this?
Exciting stuff is happening for Delta passengers and employees at LAX! The finish line is still about a year away — but things are quickly getting better!
