Delta Sky Club San Diego Airport Review
There aren’t many airport lounges in the San Diego Airport, and zero for your Priority Pass. If you’re flying Delta you’re in luck, because there is a Delta Sky Club in the San Diego airport, and it’s actually really nice!
Once I landed in the San Diego airport, it was a quick 45 second walk to the escalator taking me to the lounge. At the top of the escalator you could turn left for the United Club and right for the Delta Sky Club. The lounge is open every day from 5am until 10pm to serve those late departing flights to the east coast.
Check-in was quick and painless and I was given a quick run down of where everything was. Just off the entrance was a large seating area and just as large of a bar area. There were hightop tables with bar stools and a bar serving all sorts of alcohol. You’ve only got a few free options as the good stuff is pay only (womp womp) but if you’re looking for a cheap beer or a well cocktail, you’re good to go.
One really cool feature of the Sky Club is its balcony overlooking the terminal. They have rocking chairs where you can sit back and watch the world go by… or in the case of these two millenials, read the instagram feed of all the people you don’t want to interact with in real life.
The bathrooms are located in the rear of the club past the balcony, past the bar, past the business center (and strangly positioned paper shredder), and in the corner. I don’t know about the women’s bathroom, but the men’s had two urinals and only 1 stall. Seems like a slight oversight on their part, but perhaps the lounge isn’t heavily trafficked?
There was a small food display on hand, but when I tried to take pictures of the offerings the militant Sky Club employee gave me a dirty look. I opted to try and play nice and not take any pictures. It was lunch time so there were two hot options, a cold salad bar, and cookies and brownies for dessert. You could get any type of soda you wanted, and there was a coffee machine as well.
All in all, it’s a solid club. Plenty of free options help you avoid paying for anything in the airport itself. There were only about 7 people in the lounge at the time we arrived, so I don’t expect this to be a heavily used Sky Club. I was really impressed with how clean and organized it was, as you could tell that the employees took this as a personal point of pride. There was one person always walking around making sure all the trash was picked up and nothing was left behind.
