Review in Pictures: Delta SkyClub Seattle
I was flying DeltaOne again for the first time since 2019 and spent a few days in Seattle to visit the Museum of Flight, which was incredible! I had a mid-day flight back to Europe and thought it’d be worth checking out this lounge before, even though I did not expect much of it..
Delta SkyClub Seattle Access
The lounge is open daily from 4.15am until midnight.
Given on-going issues of overcrowding in SkyClubs across Delta’s network, they recently took various measure to limit who is eligible to visit one of these lounges now.
In summary some of Delta status holders flying basic economy no longer have automatic access, though the right Amex card could still get you in. Those travelling in DeltaOne or any Skyteam Business Class are unaffected.
Delta SkyClub Seattle
As you enter, there is the reception on your right and a staircase leading up to the mezzanine level.
The main lounge area opens up on your left and you have the hot buffet station just on the right of the main level..
Then you have many different types of seating zones, depending on your preferences..
Delta SkyClub Seattle Mezzanine
The upper level naturally has a much smaller footprint and therefore felt lot more relaxing here
It also has nice views onto the main lounge area below and the views out into the airport traffic..
Delta SkyClub Seattle Catering
The catering was limited as far as a flagship business class lounge is concerned. In the hot area, there were two choices between pasta and a soup and then there was another cold buffet area
I tried some pasta from the hot canteen area and it was just passable. Sadly forgot to take pictures!
Delta’s approach to lounge catering seems to be rather half hearted, and may have got worse since last I visited a SkyClub in New York JFK. The bar also has limited drink option with many you have to pay for.
Delta SkyClub Seattle Restroom & Showers
The main restroom was well kept and looked very modern still
With some nice Alchemist hand wash and moisterizers..
There were several shower rooms available, but I did not need them or have time to check one out anyway.
Well, this is a very distinctly average lounge for a big international carrier in one of it’s primary hubs. It was still pleasant enough to visit and it seems they have the whole overcrowding issue mitigated somewhat.
But I cannot say this lounge is befitting of any flagship lounges, such as Americans own Flagship Lounges. American Flagship catering is simply on another planet compared to Delta SkyClub catering.
I would not go out of my way to visit this lounge again. Though there is a new Delta lounge in development in Seattle, that I imagine will address the lacklustre nature of this lounge.
