Airline/Club Name: Delta Sky Club Location: MSP (Minneapolis / St. Paul) Terminal/Concourse: Terminal 1 (Lindburgh)/ “C” Concourse
Notes: I personally prefer this room to the alternate (remodeled) Sky Club adjacent the G/F concourses. While still large, it feels cozier and more exclusive. This was a morning visit so I was greeted with the standard Delta Sky Club bagel and mini-muffin buffet. Food isn’t a typical perk of US domestic lounges, so it’s no surprise I walked out hungry. The unattended self-serve bar means the lounge is 21+. A bar reasonably well stocked with some mid-and-top shelf booze for self mixing. There’s a good mix of seating here with deep lounge chairs arranged with a few more upright chairs mixed in, all comfortable.
Service: Friendly greeting, quick check-in. Lounge attendants kept snacks (what there were of them) stocked and everything clean.
Convenience to gate: This club is best suited for A/B/C concourses and maybe even a few of the higher-numbered G Concourse gates. It’s a quick tram ride and about a 5-7 minute average walk to farther gates.
How to get in: Delta has a number of options for entry. One of my favorites is the 30-day membership that allows you and up to 2 guests into Delta Sky Clubs worldwide for $90. This is a great option if you have a glut of Delta flights upcoming and traveling with a spouse or friends. Otherwise the $25 entry fee using your Delta branded American Express option is a good one, but charges are per-person (so it would be $50 for your AND your spouse or buddy).

Good review. This is one of the newer generation WorldClubs (like in DTW, MEM, SFO and NRT). Delta’s Crown Rooms offer much less in terms of snacks/food than the Worldclubs do, so I hope this merger brings Delta’s lounges up to NW’s standards.

Thanks Neal. I’ve noticed a few Delta lounges have been adding to their snack selection. I’ve recently enjoyed olives at LAX and pastries at JFK but nothing like WorldClubs selection. In my unlikely dream combo they keep the full service bar from Crown Rooms and NWA snacks.

Thanks for your info. Better than many of the sky clubs I have visited. I was here when It was a World Club also. Break from the airport crowd the day we were here. Nice view of the snow during our layover that day, for a couple from south FL.

This particular SkyClub is my fave at MSP but there are tons of places in the airport that I like to hang out more.

The lounge isn’t 21 and up though….
