Updates To The Main Delta Sky Club In Detroit

A correspondent shares that the renovations to the kitchen at the main Delta Sky Club in DTW has been completed, and that it features mostly new furniture with dividers designed to offer privacy. There’s also now outlets at nearly every seat “though some aren’t yet operational.”

The four cubicles remain for now [as they do in Cincinnati], although cubicles aren’t part of the latest Sky Club design concepts. …The comfortable adjustable office chairs in each cubicle have been replaced by regular chairs that aren’t suitable for desks…the coat/jacket hooks at each cubicle were removed.. Still no snazzy phone booths or pods, as we’re seeing at other newly built or recently renovated lounges in the Sky Club system.

Also, the bar is still the temporary staffed bar with only complimentary booze. No premium drinks here, which eliminates one of the most valuable uses of Sky Miles. And unlike before the pandemic, drinks aren’t self-serve. ..Finally, the showers are back after two years of being closed.

The mahogany chairs in the lounge unfortunately share a small table per two chairs, and the tables are small for eating or working. As a people spread out across multiple chairs, reducing the seating capacity of the lounge.

Kitchen updates aside, it seems they’ve taken an American Airlines Charlotte club approach to the refresh.
