While passing through Atlanta today, my connection was departing the B gates. I had not previously reviewed this Sky Club®, so I went over to check it out. This is a big lounge at over 25,000 square feet (with seating for over 500 guests). Delta has done a good job of tightening entrance requirements. Even though the lounge was busy, it was not overwhelming and there were many open seats.


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 Sky Club® is huge and serves its purpose. I like some of the art, but it doesn’t feel as inviting as some of the others. If you’re taking the stairs, be warned. There are several flights to get to the Sky Club®. Its amenities include a buffet, a dessert and snack station, a full bar as well as a smaller one near the entrance serving wine, restrooms, and free Wi-Fi.

ATL B Elevator

The Sky Club® in Terminal B is located upstairs.

ATL B Stairs

There is an elevator as well as a stairwell to reach the lounge.

Luggage Tags ATL B

You’ll find these luggage tags in the middle of the stairwell. They represent some of Delta’s hubs plus MEX (Aeromexico’s hub).

Delta ATL B Desk

Upstairs, there is a long hallway with kiosks to verify entrance credentials along with a desk staffed by several agents for assistance.

ATL B Display

Near the lounge entrance, is this display. I’m not quite sure what it is and would love to know if anyone can tell me.

ATL B Departures

A departures board is near the entrance.



A main bar lines the furthest wall of the lounge. It offers all of the standard spirits, wine, and beer that Delta provides complimentary as well as some premium options for purchase.

ATL B Wine Bar

There is also a small bar setup near the entrance that offers wine and mimosas.

ATL B Espresso Machines

There are two espresso machines tucked away in the back near the desserts.

ATL B Coffee Condiments

Brewed coffee, hot water, tea, and condiments were nearby.

ATL B Soda Machine

There is a self-serve soda machine near the bar. It has ginger ale, which is always a win for me.

ATL B Iced Tea

There is also lemonade, iced tea, and water near the bar.

ATL B Sparkling Water

Lots of cups and a sparkling water machine for sparkling water.

ATL B Coke Art

Some beverage-inspired modern art

Seating & Decor

There is tons of seating in this Sky Club®. There are lots of tables, high tops, and desks around the room. The art takes its inspiration from a mix of Atlanta and aviation.

Overall Impression:

This Delta Sky Club® in Terminal B at ATL is huge and offers a  comfortable space to work or relax. It’s not my favorite at this airport, but it serves its purpose when nearby.

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).
