As I have shifted more of my flying to Delta this year, I have been enjoyed visiting the Sky Clubs® along the way. I’ve reviewed many including the gorgeous new one that opened in Terminal 5 at ORD back in October. Kansas City International Airport (MCI) is the latest to get a Sky Club®.
It opens on February 28th as part of MCI’s $1.5 billion overhaul that consolidates all airport operations into a state-of-the-art, 39-gate terminal. Delta will be the only carrier to have a lounge in this airport. The new MCI will offer a completely revamped experience including a new, enlarged security checkpoint, local concession options, and gates equipped with the latest technology.
This Sky Club® will measure 11,200 square feet and will accommodate nearly 200 guests. The MCI lounge will also offer two all-weather Sky Decks with views of the airfield. Guests can enjoy a premium bar, a buffet, Delta’s curated art program showcasing regional artists, and modern bathrooms featuring Grown Alchemist products.
“The Delta Sky Club® team is thrilled to welcome customers in Kansas City – our first new market in several years,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director – Delta Sky Club®. “We are proud to be a part of the new MCI, elevating this remarkable transformation with our signature lounge experience.”
Delta operates daily service to all nine of its hubs from MCI. Delta will add additional daily flights to Atlanta, Boston, and Minneapolis this spring/summer.
Anthony’s Take: The new Sky Clubs® at LAX, ORD, and LGA are gorgeous and offer premium food and beverage choices. I’m not sure when I’ll be in MCI, but more lounges are always welcome additions.
Anthony’s Credit Card Pick: I love the lounges where The Platinum Card® from American Express grants me access. It has had a prominent place in my wallet for many years now. While it does have an annual fee of $695, it provides many travel benefits and will always be my go-to for lounge access (both Delta Sky Clubs® and Centurion Lounges) and booking airfare from the airlines to earn 5x points (up to $500,000 per calendar year).

I think it is criminal for AA not to have a lounge at the new MCI. They had excuses to close the clubs in the old setup due to gate access but no reason in this new terminal. Glad Delta is investing there and it should pay off for them.
