LaGuardia used to be tragic. The airport was literally falling apart (as evidenced by the buckets and garbage cans that caught rain water scattered throughout). But, it’s been under construction the past few years and as part of Delta’s $3.9 billion airport transformation project, a new concourse, arrivals and departures hall, and it’s now home to one of the largest Sky Clubs®.

LGA Sky Club Entry


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 gorgeous and huge at 34,800 square feet. I was excited to try it since I learned it had opened. The Centurion Lounge was always my favorite at LGA, but this Sky Club® just bumped it out of first place with its expansive main buffet, separate buffet with chef’s station, drink stations, bar, and plenty of seating.

After entering, agents assist with checking your boarding pass and credentials at kiosks. Then it’s over to an escalator to get up to the lounge. Once at the top, you see some seating with the main buffet straight ahead and the bar to the right.

LGA Sky Club Bar


Just past the landing at the top of the escalator 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.

LGA Sky Club Buffet


Across from the bar is the main buffet with a huge selection. This has everything you could want for breakfast including bagels, breads, eggs, potatoes, yogurt, berries, and more. The second buffet had even more food and made-to-order pancakes.

Seating LGA Sky Club

Counter seating near the main buffet.


This Sky Club® offers free Wi-Fi, restrooms, and the food and beverages mentioned above. It also has several desks with agents standing by for travel assistance. Kiosks are near the desks so that you can secure a place with the agents without waiting in line when there is weather or other irregular operations that cause these agents to be in high demand. The other standout in this Sky Club® is the incredible art. I didn’t take any photos as I did not want to be invasive of others’ privacy, but the modern bathrooms feature Le Labo soaps and are high tech with wave-to-enter doors.

Overall Impression:

The Delta Sky Club® at LGA is amazing with lots of seating, two buffets, a full bar, an art collection, modern restrooms, and free Wi-Fi. I’m looking forward to returning soon.

There were no lines when I visited.

The Delta Club at LaGuardia is by far, the best in the system, you can not beat the meal you receive there. However, if you have to buy your way in, at ($55.00?) its not worth it. Unless you have 3 hours to kill, then adding a nice chair to seat in, makes it worth it, but for a fast bit, keep you $55.00.

It’s $39 per guest with the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card or The Platinum Card from American Express. I agree that if you have some time that it’s worth it. The cardholder of either of these cards gets in free.
