- BREAKING: Delta has backtracked on arrival access and restored what is in place now (however the 3 hour before departure rule STANDS as of 1JUNE2022). See Access & Policies page here!
Well I guess I should not be surprised. After all, about one month ago I blogged that this would likely be on the way. I said:
“My guess is the end of visiting a Sky Club in your arrival city” and “The next move will likely be a change to the simply horrid Priority Pass and Centurion rule of no entrance until three hours before departure.”
We now know both of these are happening soon and even more. Delta.com updated the Skyclub access page to tell us the following:
“Beginning June 1, 2022, guests will be able to access Clubs anytime within 3 hours of their scheduled departure time (and connecting customers can continue to access Clubs at any time prior to departure). All departing and connecting customers will have access to Clubs. With the exception of arriving Delta One customers, Club access will be unavailable for arriving customers without a connection. Note that a same-day round-trip does not qualify as a connection. Customers will be able to access Clubs within 3 hours of their scheduled departure flight and within 3 hours of their return flight.” – Delta.com
Clearly this is a big downgrade but Delta had to do something as having folks with access waiting in lines outside a Skyclub could not continue.
What do you think of this change from Delta? Will this have any impact on your loyalty to Delta since no other US airline has this kind of entry rules? – René
