If you are a Delta flyer in the Midwest you frequently connect in Minneapolis I normally try for Detroit from South Bend as my CRJ200 ride is only 20-ish minutes vs. the hour ride on these hated little torture cans up to MSP. But this past year I have, many times, willingly chosen the longer ride just because of one thing:
- The MSP Escape Lounge <-Link to club reveiw
I am still shocked how few Delta flyers even know it has been open for almost a year now or even where it is for that matter. Every time I visit it is all but empty. And look at the perks you get vs. the over crowded Sky Club just a few yards away:
- Amazing views
- Real (and better) food free
- Food for purchase
- Better free drinks including champagne
- Fast Wifi
- Table service
- and more…
Plus, on top of all of this, right now as you can see from the top of this post you can get a survey card to get via e-mail a $10 off food or beverage coupon for your NEXT visit to the club.
This club is part of Priority Pass network so if you have any number of credit cards that included PP you can get in for free including cards like the:
I know Sky Clubs are still nice places to visit and when you need help with a ticket issue a 3rd party lounge is not what you want. But unless that is why you are visiting I find myself in most airports that have a better lounge avoiding the Delta lounges all together now. Maybe you feel the same?
Anyway, I am not sure how long they will have the survey coupons out so be sure to stop in this week if you want to get in on this current deal! – René
