Before this trip, we became Platinum AmErican Express card holders, which includes access to the Delta Sky Club.
How have we not done this sooner?
We started at a lounge in Jacksonville. I walked past a buffet of omelettes and fruit to pick up a Starbucks Americano and a paper. I wasn’t quite ready for the wine or mimosas I saw at 8am, but no judgement here.
Next stop, the domestic terminal lounge in Atlanta where we enjoyed Thai Chicken soup and a hummus/salad plate around noon before traipsing over to the international terminal.
We met up with our travel companions, a physician and his wife headed to the same conference in Spain, at the Delta Sky Club lounge in the international terminal where we enjoyed some shredded chicken and a glass of white wine before boarding our 3pm flight to Paris.
You know the first time you experience a really nice hotel – how it raises the bar on your travel standards, making it hard to go back to budget hotels with scratchy sheets? That’s basically what’s happened here – I’ve found another way to be spoiled. In our first day of travel as Delta members, we spent 4 hours in 3 different Delta Sky Clubs and now I don’t want to travel any other way.
