Delta Cuts Sky Club Access for Employees
Delta Air Lines has found an interesting way to fight overcrowding at its popular Sky Club lounges.
Starting February 2nd, the company won’t allow its own employees to use the lounges when they’re flying standby with company travel privileges, or when traveling for company business. The information was shared in a memo that was first reported by xJonNYC on Twitter.
“The employee discount on Delta Sky Club memberships also is discontinued,” said the memo. “While we understand this may be disappointing, know this decision was not made lightly. We are sure you’ll agree that delivering an elevated experience to our most loyal customers must be our priority.”
Delta employees can currently access Sky Clubs while traveling with employee benefits or using nonrevenue travel passes, if they have a Sky Club membership. The membership usually comes from certain credit cards or purchased through the employee discount which is being discontinued.
Delta Air Lines has also announced that it will limit Sky Club access for some customers starting in February. The measures come as the airline tries to reduce long lines and crowds at the lounges, which has been a major issue since travel rebounded after the pandemic.
