We were in New Jersey to help my mother-in-law move yesterday. On our way back home, we had some time to visit the Delta Sky Club® at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). This is likely the last time that I will visit this location as Delta Air Lines is moving its operation and opening a new lounge in Terminal A in the near future.
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: It’s been a while since I have been in this Sky Club®. I’m pleased to report that it has held up nicely, had some fun NJ-inspired art, a decent buffet, and plenty of seating. I’m excited to see the new lounge when Delta moves into Terminal A in the next few months, but this space is well equipped for working and relaxing.
A check-in desk is immediately in front of you upon entering the lounge. There were six agents working the check-in area, which made it easy to get scanned and admitted quickly.
The bar is to the right of the check-in area near the buffet. It has lots of tables for dining and a good amount of space to sit at the bar. They offer all of the standard spirits, wine, and beer that Delta provides complimentary, as well as some premium options for purchase.
Self-serve drip coffee, iced tea, and lemon water were found on the right side of the bar.
A coffee machine and condiments are located on the side of the buffet.
Lunch/dinner was being served during my visit. The buffet has soup, salads, sandwiches, cheese, cold cuts, hummus, and a few hot dishes.
Mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables
Chickpea, Tomato & Cucumber, and Shredded Carrot and Raisin salads
Tomato Basil Bisque and Chicken Noodle Soup
Caprese and Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Meats, cheeses, hummus, and veggies
Seating & Decor
There is lots of seating in this Sky Club®. There are tables, high tops, and individual workstations around the room.
A long work table and several individual work areas are set up in the back left part of the lounge.
Large, cushioned chairs are grouped on the left side as well.
Even though the lounge was slightly crowded, there were still plenty of empty seats.
I liked the quirky and NJ-themed art in this lounge. Warhol is one of my favorites and these soup labels made me think of his iconic cans.
Bruce Springsteen and Frank Sinatra
Greetings from New Jersey
This Sky Club® has more magazines than I’ve seen in US lounges in years.
It offered a printer and shredder near the work area.
The Newark Sky Club® offers free Wi-Fi, restrooms, and the food, beverages, and other amenities mentioned above.
The days are numbered for this Sky Club® in Newark. It’s slated to close in the near future when the new lounge and Delta’s operations move to Terminal A. While it lasts, it’s a nice place to spend time before a flight.
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).
