Lounge Review: Delta Sky Club No. 2 at Tokyo Narita

Lounge Review: Delta Sky Club No. 2 at Tokyo Narita, Japan

After arriving back in the terminal after some spotting and a visit to the Museum of Aeronautical Sciences, I checked in for my Delta flight and headed straight through the security and to the Delta Sky Club.

There are two Sky Clubs in the terminal – one near gate 71 (No. 1) and another near gate 22 (No. 2). As my flight was departing from gate 26, I headed to Sky Club No. 2.

This time, I had access to the lounge thanks to my Delta Gold Medallion status. In Japan, holders of the Delta Amex Gold credit card get the status as one of the card’s perks.

Lounge Overview

The lounge is in a semi-circular room in the middle of which the reception is located. At the reception, besides checking into the lounge, you can also request access to the showers and get assistance with your reservation.

There is plenty of seats throughout the lounge. There are seats ranging from sofa chairs to regular chairs and counter-height chairs in a variety of arrangements to suit both individual travelers and larger groups of people.

The wooden partition helped make the lounge feel more private.

At both ends of the lounge, there is a buffet area. While the layout of each of them differs a bit, the offerings are the same (see the section below).

On the left end, there is a small play room for kids, and a corner with two phones – I wonder if people still use those.

A pair of phones that probably does not get used much.

In the middle of the lounge, to the left of reception, as well as on the far right end of the lounge, workspaces can be found. While the former features some cubicles, the latter offers four counter-height chairs. Both of them provide a pair of computers. There are some more cubicles along the window in the far left end of the lounge.

The showers are located to the left of the reception in a narrow hallway. Each of the five shower rooms can be unlocked with a keycard that can be obtained at the reception in exchange for ones boarding pass. The shower rooms are fairly simple with a space for luggage, a sink, a toilet, and a semi-open shower booth. At the time of my visit, the water pressure was fairly low.

Finally, at the time of my visit, there were two “events” going on in the lounge.

The first was a celebration of “hinamatsuri” – Japanese Girl’s Day. There were traditional dolls placed by the entrance, and rice crackers were being handed out.

The second was an event promoting the direct Tokyo Narita to Portland route operated by Delta. Near the reception, there was a desk with flyers offering information about the region. On top of that, bottled craft beer from Portland was offered.

Food & Drinks Selection

As mentioned above, there are buffet areas at both ends of the lounge, and they both offer the same refreshments.

Several choices of warm food were offered during my visit including pasta, noodles, fried chicken, yakitori and congee.

Vegetable sticks, bananas, and salad were offered as well.

Finally, there were some small desserts. Once those run out, they were replaced by chips and pretzels. I am not sure why, but it might have been switching from the lunch offering to afternoon offering. In either case, it would have been nice if both of them were available at all time.

Desserts and wine.

As for drinks, there were a soda machine, coffee and tea, and a selection of liquor. There was also a pair of the well-known Japanese automatic beer dispensers offering Asahi and Suntory beers.

Overall Thoughts

Previously, I reviewed another Narita airport Sky Team lounge – the KAL Lounge which is also a Priority Pass lounge. Compared to that one, the Sky Club is, understandably given that Delta operates quite a few long-hauls out of Narita, miles better.

There is plenty of seating in the lounge – or at least it seemed so during my visit – and the refreshments selection is decent. The only downside of the lounge was the shower water pressure, but to me that is a minor issue.

…and the tasty desserts.

While I have not visited the No. 1 Sky Club, I read a few reports which say No. 2 is more comfortable. Once I have a chance to fly out of Narita with Sky Team again, I will make sure to check out the No. 1 lounge and report back to you!
