The third, and final, lounge I visited before my flight to Detroit at the end of my trip to Miami was the Delta Sky Club. Just like with the Sky Club at Narita and Atlanta, I was able to access it thanks to my Delta Gold Medallion status which comes as a perk of my Japanese Delta AMEX Gold credit card.
I created the KN Aviation My Flight Log, a log book for aviation enthusiasts and frequent flyers, for exactly that purpose...

The lounge is located in Concourse H where all Delta flights depart from. It is easy to find, as after clearing the Concourse H security checkpoint, you just have to turn left and it’s right behind the corner.
The lounge is located above the main departures floor, and can be either accessed via stairs or an elevator both of which lead into the middle of the lounge.
The reception is a couple of steps to the left, kind of behind a corner – it is an interesting set-up, as on a busy day, it must be fairly difficult for the staff to monitor who already checked into the lounge and who did not.
Are you interested in trying business or first class for the price of economy?
If so, you might want to check out Four Ways to Try Business Class Without Breaking the Bank - a free guide that I put together detailing some of the ways I was able to do so - and experiment with some of the methods mentioned in it.
The main seating area which is located along the length of the lounge features plenty of sofa chairs, lounging chairs, and some couches.
There is also a counter along the windows. Unfortunately, the lounge doesn’t offer apron views, and as such, there is little benefit to using the “window” seats.
The stairs and elevators lead to this area.
On the right side of the lounge is a separate, smaller seating area.
To the left of the elevator, you can find the reception desk (which should be the first place you head to). Behind the elevator, there are restrooms and even shower rooms.
Further down on the left, behind the corner, there is the buffet and “THE BAR.” There is also some more seating in this area, and there is also a magazine rack with some reading materials.
Finally, there is also a small business center with some desks to work behind and a printer.

Food & Drinks Selection
The buffet area features three parts: a counter with food, a self-service drink corner, and “THE BAR.”
I visited the lounge in relatively early morning, and the food selection was more than adequate for breakfast. There were some whole fruits as well as fruit cuts, yoghurt, muffins, bread, bagels, and boiled eggs, as well as some cereals. There was also congee.
The drink corner offered a selection of juices, water, tea and coffee. The coffee was, just as in the other Sky Clubs, provided by Starbucks.
Finally, at “THE BAR,” one could order from a wide selection of both complimentary and “premium” paid drinks.
During my visit, the lounge was quite empty, and so it provided for a nice place to relax before my flight. The selection of food and drinks was also more than enough for the hour of the day.
