If you’re a Delta flyer based in New Orleans the airline has some good news for you – as of today, 6 November 2019, the latest Sky Club is opening at Louis Armstrong New Orleans international airport.
The airline hasn’t exactly been generous with what images it has provided of the new Sky Club (just two) and there isn’t very much detail to pass on either, but the press release does give us a small idea of what to expect.
The new Delta Sky Club in New Orleans replaces an older club and is located at the entrance to concourse C in the airport’s new terminal (which is also opening today).
The airline says that it has been designed to reflect the city’s “unique culture” and “its celebrated art, jazz, and cuisine” – expect lots of pictures of famous jazz musicians on the walls and gumbo in the dining area!
Per Delta the lounge offers:
- Over 4,600 square feet of space spread across two levels.
- Comfortable seating for up to 100 passengers
- High-speed Wi-Fi
- Power outlets at “nearly every seat”
- Fresh, regionally-inspired cuisine including oysters, gumbo and muffuletta sandwiches rotating seasonally
- A full-service bar featuring seasonal cocktails, beer from Abita, Gnarly Barley and Port Orleans brewing companies and wine selected by Delta’s Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson.
As far as the details of the Sly Club go that’s all that Delta has said so if anyone is traveling through MSY in the next few days (and visits the Sky Club) please use the comments section to let us know what the space is like.
Neither United nor American Airlines offer a lounge of their own in New Orleans (although United has plans to open one) so Delta is noticeably ahead of the other two major legacy airlines in offering a Sky Club at the airport and, based on the small amount of information provided by the airline and the images posted to the Points Guy site, it looks like Delta has done a very nice job.
