Access

I got to have an Afternoon Lounge Experience Delta Sky Club Minneapolis C Terminal thanks to my American Express Platinum card, which gives you Delta Sky Club Lounge Access when you have same day travel on Delta.

If you do not have the American Express Platinum Card, you can use Priority Pass to access the PGA Lounge MSP Airport, or you can purchase access to the Escape Lounge.

I previously reviewed the PGA Lounge MSP Airport as well as Escape Lounge.

In addition, I recently reviewed the main Delta Sky Club located near the G and F Gates.

Location

There are two Delta Sky Clubs at Minneapolis. The main club is near the F and G Gates and it includes a hosted Luxury Bar. The smaller club, which is the focus of this review is located in the C terminal near the C9 Tram Station.

Arrival

The lounge activity level was at about 85% when I arrived on Friday afternoon for the visit.

When I entered, there was one agent at the reception desk and another agent at the customer service desk.

The agent at the reception desk welcomed me asked for my membership credentials. I provide my American Express Platinum card and scanned my boarding pass. The agent thanked me and she welcomed me. The agent provided the departure gate for my flight and said that it was on schedule before inviting me to relax in the lounge.

Lounge Experience

I spent a few minutes walking around the lounge before locating a seat.

I relaxed and used the WiFi to respond to some work emails before grabbing a snack and a drink from the bar.

At the bar, I prepared a Spicy Bloody Mary and I selected limes, olives, cheese and celery to accompany the beverage.

The Bloody Mary mix was tangy but it was mild in spice. The cocktail had a good taste and it was great that there were all the options for the toppings.

From the buffet, I made a salad with mixed greens, tomatoes, black beans, onion crisps and cheese. I selected ranch dressing.

The salad was fresh and the vegetables had a good taste and flavor. The beans were seasoned well and it enhanced the salad. The dressing was creamy and it was rich in flavor.

A server greeted me while I was at my seat and offered to remove my glass when I finished the beverage. The server thanked me sincerely.

After I finished my salad, I relaxed for a few more minutes before having to depart the lounge for my flight to Philadelphia.

Departure

While I was walking near the coffee station, a server thanked me for visiting the lounge and she wished me a good day.

An agent at the customer service desk also thanked me as I walked by the desk.

The lounge was 80% occupied upon my departure.

Overall

My visit to the Delta Sky Club C Terminal Minneapolis was enjoyable. It is nice the lounge offers the various rooms, which helps make the lounge more intimate. The staff members I encountered were cordial and the experience was good overall. The snack and drinks were excellent. It was a nice spot to relax before my flight.

    Which Sky Club at MSP is your favorite?

    • Good question. They each have their quirks. I think I like this smaller one a bit better because it offers the view of the runway. But the main club looks a lot more modern and fresh, so I guess its a toss up. What about you? Do you have a favorite at MSP?
