Thanks to the mighty schedule change rule I had some time on my way back from Sweden last trip to go check out the new International Terminal F in Atlanta (ATL). First off, anyone can get to F as long as you are cleared through security. The “plane train” takes you around some fun curves and you get a peak at the underside of the baggage area on the way.
You will go up two sets of escalators to get to the main floor of the terminal.
Then you will be greeted by the immense crystal chandelier that cost, I have been told, a cool 1.2 million! The food court on the upper level is very nice, open and clean as well as across from the entrance to the Skyclub.
The Skyclub is very nice and very bright as light floods in from all over. It is spread out and that makes it “feel” even bigger.
The bar area is nice and they have a bunch of different beers on tap all complementary!
The snack area is the standard Delta goodies and I like the open feel here too.
There is a media room
And even a small upstairs area
I love the wall art that looks almost like a paper airplane. (I am such a geek)
There are also 8 showers in this lounge. For now the word has not got out how nice this lounge is so I would try it if you need a shower fast as the others can have a wait at times.
We chose to sit in the wing area off the bar. The views were just so sweet.
Not just of the jets so close that it feels like you can reach out and touch them!
You also have views of the runways left and right as well as the tower “towering” over you.
I love our Skyclubs. I love time to decompress between flights. I love WiFi, beer and wine and a chance to shower when I need it. I LOVE that my Delta AMEX Reserve card gets me and up to two more buddies in for free. But do keep in mind that if you have the GOLD or PLAT Delta AMEX it is just $25 to get in.
So there is my review of the new ATL “F” club. If you have not had a chance to see it yet, make the time. – René
