On my last trip through Atlanta I had just enough time to pop into one of the nicest, but often very crowded, Delta Sky Clubs that is the B club with stunning airport views from either side. If you have never been to this club you really should go.
While I am a full Sky Club member so I can scan almost anything like my boarding pass, my Sky Club or SkyMiles card (digital or real) and get in, I like clear (fyi if you just got a Delta Reserve card under the current amazing offer, and it is in your profile correctly, you do NOT need to get the card out either).
What is really new to this club is CLEAR biometrics entrance. As you may have seen in the news, Delta is going to one day let you check-in, clear security, enter the Sky Club and board all with just you finger print – no other ID needed. I personally love this but some have issues with the “what if’s” and given how many mega companies have been hacked I understand that. All I can say is CLEAR and DELTA better be spending whatever it takes to make sure they do keep our data secure.
It took the rep just a few seconds to find me and then all my normal info was there including my membership level and flights etc. Very slick and quick.
But was it that much better? I know there are times your battery on your phone will be low but most times I always have it at hand. I don’t need an ID to get into the Sky Club so my backup paper boarding pass I always travel with is also quick. I guess I like this feature but not as much as say for security or at check-in or boarding maybe. I look forward to testing these as well.
What do you think. Do you have CLEAR yet? Will all these changes motivate you to get CLEAR? Are you concerned about privacy or IT security with biometrics? Let us know in the comments below! – Rene
