On a recent layover in Atlanta (ATL), I took a few minutes to check out one of the smaller Sky Clubs®. I had attempted to go to one of the closer lounges as I was departing from the B gates, but six of the nine Sky Clubs® at ATL were closed due to burst pipes and lack of water pressure. It was an okay place to grab some food, a drink, and check some email before my connection, but it was crowded (even more so since so many lounges were closed).

Delta Sky Club D12


Access is granted to passengers with memberships (purchased annually), one-time pass holders (earned from the co-branded American Express cards), Delta One®, SkyTeam premium cabin passengers, SkyTeam Elite Plus when flying internationally in premium cabins, the Centurion® and the Platinum Card® from American Express holders, Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card holders, WestJet business class passengers, and WestJet Rewards Platinum and Gold Elite. Allowed guests vary by access type. A same-day boarding pass is required to enter the Delta Sky Club®.

Anthony’s Take: This lounge is one of the smaller ones in ATL. It used to be a United Club℠ and was remodeled to become a Sky Club® a few years back. I like that it has lots of natural light. It offers all the basics like food, a bar, free Wi-Fi, a copier/printer, and restrooms, but not much else.

When entering the lounge there is a desk for checking credentials and travel assistance if needed.

In the back corner you’ll find a full bar. It offers all of the standard spirits, wine, and beer that Delta provides complimentary as well as some premium options for purchase.


Across from the bar is a buffet with a limited selection. This includes salads, sandwiches, soups, two hot entrees, and desserts.

Business ATL Sky Club D12


This Sky Club® offers free Wi-Fi, restrooms, and the food and beverages mentioned above. It also had a small room with an all-in-one printer/copier as well as a paper shredder.

Overall Impression:

The Delta Sky Club® by gate D12 in Atlanta is small, but functional with a buffet, full bar, and free Wi-Fi. I like the natural light and to be able to watch the planes from this lounge. If you’re departing from the D gates, it’s worth stopping by for a quick visit.

Ah yes, the old Continental Presidents Club… At least the catering is better. It does have nice views but from my experience it turns into a sauna on a sunny late afternoon. I prefer the other D club that is on lower level in what was years ago an ASA/DL Connection break room and ops space. Never seems too crowded.
