Am I crazy? Wasn’t I just here? The Delta Sky Club at Detroit Metro Airport is exactly like the one in Minneapolis. This one boasts a grand entrance with a front desk that makes you think you are checking into the Waldorf. Instead, after taking the escalator up one level, you find yourself back in the mediocrity that is the Delta Sky Lounge. This includes a self-service bar, self-service finger foods, and self-service entertainment.
Why doesn’t Delta try harder to give those coming through the sparkling McNamara Terminal a more worldly experience? The reason is because Delta is more concerned with profits than putting on a show. It really is sad to see the reaction from international travelers when they arrive at the Delta lounge. “This is it?” Nobody is expecting Lufthansa’s First Class Lounge or Singapore’s Private Room but at least put forth some effort.
Bored, I chose to leave the lounge and wait in the stunning terminal for my Virgin Atlantic flight to depart.
