Returning from our weekend in Rhode Island, we had some time to check out the Delta Sky Club®. I had already reviewed the Sky Club near Gate A7 (review here), so we walked to the Satellite Terminal to check out the larger one there. This lounge is gorgeous and has seating for 400 passengers.

BOS Sky Club A18

The entrance to the Sky Club® is upstairs from the gates. There are stairs as well as an elevator. Once upstairs, you’ll see the familiar blue-tinted doors.


Access is granted to passengers with memberships (purchased annually), one-time pass holders (earned from the co-branded American Express cards or purchased for $59), 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® at BOS is beautiful and spacious. Delta’s tightening of admission seems to be working here. The lounge was almost completely empty when we visited late morning on a Sunday. There is an impressive buffet, a dessert cart, a full bar, and lots of space to spread out, relax, work, and wait for your flight.

BOS Sky Club Kiosks

Kiosks are found right inside the entrance. My American Express card was not working to pay for my guest, so the agent at the desk took care of charging the $50 in a matter of minutes.

BOS Sky Club Desk

To the right of the entrance you’ll find desks with agents to assist with travel needs (one got up and I snapped this photo).

BOS Sky Club Departures

A departures board can also be found in the front of the lounge. I always enjoy looking at these and learning about other destinations that Delta serves. I didn’t know Delta flew to Cancun or New Orleans from BOS.

BOS Sky Club Bar 2


There is a large crescent-shaped bar on the right side 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.

BOS Sky Club Soda Fountain

A self-serve soda fountain is near by (with ginger ale…my go-to drink other than iced tea).

BOS Sky Club Water

Iced tea and lemonade are found here later in the day alongside cranberry citrus water and sparkling water.

BOS Sky Club Coffee

A coffee station is also open to guests.

BOS Sky Club Coffee Condiments

Coffee condiments were nearby.

BOS Sky Club Fruit

There was also fresh fruit (wrapped to go).

BOS Sky Club Coffee Bar 2

A second coffee bar can be found in the back of the lounge.

Seating & Decor

There is a lot of seating in this Sky Club®. The lounge felt extra empty and I loved having so much space to myself. There are tables for working, dining, chairs for watching TV, chairs and banquettes for relaxing, and other seating configurations. I love a lot of the art that Delta chose for the Sky Clubs® and the modern art does not disappoint in this one.

BOS Sky Club Seating 2

Individual desks found in the back corner.

BOS Sky Club Seating 3

Comfortable chairs facing a wall of TVs.

BOS Sky Club Art

I loved this piece above the dessert bar.


This Sky Club® offers free Wi-Fi, restrooms, and the food and beverages mentioned above.

Overall Impression: This Delta Sky Club® at BOS is one of my favorites that I have visited. It’s nicely appointed with plenty of seating and an expansive buffet. I’ll make the trek to the Satellite Terminal when I’m here next.

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).
