I had to go to New Orleans for a conference last week and had some time to visit. Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) might be dominated by Southwest Airlines (35% of the marketshare), but Delta has a Sky Club® and United operates a lounge in Concourse C, as well. There is also a Priority Pass lounge (The Club MSY) in Concourse A. The Sky Club® opened along with a new terminal in 2019.

An agent is downstairs to check credentials. It’s a small space, so I felt awkward taking a photo. 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 nicely designed and lets you know that you are in New Orleans with art throughout giving playful nods to the Big Easy. There is a decent buffet, restrooms, and a good amount of space for a smaller Sky Club® location. The lounge was quite crowded during my visit, but I managed to find a seat.

Stairs and an elevator lead to the lounge.

The bar is tucked in the far right corner 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.

Tea and condiments are on the right side.

A soda machine is also available for guests. It had something I’ve never seen before, Barq’s Red Creme Soda. I tasted it and I couldn’t taste any difference from regular creme soda. I learned this is a regional Southern favorite.

Seating & Decor

There is a decent amount of seating in this Sky Club®. There is a mix of tables, high tops, and desks around the room with lots of natural light (sometimes too much for photos) and art that makes it feel like New Orleans. The bar is to the right, bathrooms to the left, and the buffet lines an entire wall.

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

Overall Impression:

This Delta Sky Club® at MSY is a decent size for a outstation and offers a bright, comfortable space to work or relax.

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). Learn moreRates & Fees.

My industry used to have annual trade show in MSY. I miss the food and atmosphere. Last time I was there in the Sky club it wasn’t too bad.
