Delta Air Lines’ largest Sky Club opens today as part of the new terminal addition at New York LaGuardia Airport. We were there this week for a sneak peek at the beautiful new airport lounge.
The Sky Club kitchen and bar were getting some final touches, so weren’t able to sample the grand fare people will enjoy on a daily basis. (You’ll have to tell us in the Comments section below what you think of the nosh and drinks when you visit!) But we have a bunch of pictures and details!
The Delta Sky Club at LaGuardia’s construction is sort of an ongoing process you likely won’t notice much (or any) of when you visit right now.
- The joint can already seat 600 guests.
- When completed, the lounge will be 34,000 square feet.
- A year-round Sky Deck will eventually be added to the club.
- The project should be complete within the next few years.
- The pre-existing, smaller Delta Sky Club will remain open for a little while longer.
A Crown Room or WorldClub this ain’t. The LGA Delta Sky Club is sort of a retro-hip airport lounge that Delta modeled as sort of a turn-of-the-20th-century, hotel-metropolitan theme. Not every seat has access to power outlets or USB ports — but many do. Plus, Delta installed several dozen (at least) USB-C ports at a number of seats and workstations.
Where is the New Delta Sky Club at LaGuardia?
Terminal 2, Concourse E.
Hang a left when you clear security. You’ll find the club on your left-hand side.
Pass through those doors in the middle.
Inside the New Delta Sky Club at LaGuardia
Greeting you in the lobby are several self-service check-in kiosks. Agents can also assist with the process.
The lobby seems a little small for a club that’s going to eventually hold the crown as Delta’s Sky Club. But perhaps (hopefully) it will be expanded.
You need to take escalators, stairs, or an elevator to reach the club’s main area. Reader G tells us this artwork is by “mixed media artist and photographer Daesha Devón Harris.”
As you go up the escalators, notice the Delta logo art on the walls. (At least, that’s what it looks like to me.)
Wander around and find yourself a spot. Don’t worry. There are plenty of seating options.
The communal tables all feature these power ports.
A few of the individual workstations offer wireless charging for capable devices.
Here’s something new: these comfy workstations with retractable desks!
Interestingly, these workstations do not have USB ports. So, make sure to bring an appropriate adapter for whatever electronics you use.
The bars throughout the club feature hooks for guests to hang bags.
My laptop and several other items were in my Nomad Lane bag. The hook didn’t budge and held just fine!
Buffets and Bar
There’s a large, staffed bar serving both complimentary and premium cocktails. Delta told us the club has a gourmet kitchen.
The bar area is where the larger of the club’s two buffets is located.
Dozens of cafe-style tables are placed near the buffets and bar.
There’s a drink station near the main dining area.
The other buffet is located more toward the club’s entrance. There’s a beverage station there, as well.
I found the restroom rather fancy.
The main bathroom door has a motion sensor — offering you a hands-free way to open the door.
Like other Sky Clubs, Delta installed these help desks so agents can help passengers with problems that arise during their travels.
I like what Delta’s doing with their Sky Club designs and investments. The new Delta Sky Club at LaGuardia is pretty grand — and there’s still more to be added! I’m eager to visit again and try the food.
