At the Airport
The benefits of first class travel begin when you arrive at the airport. First class passengers on a Delta Airlines flight receive Delta’s Sky Priority service. ATt the check-in counter, first class passengers are helped in Sky Priority lines which keep wait times to a minimum. Sky Priority lines are also available through security checkpoints, so you won’t wait long there either. Once through security, you can pass the time before preboarding at Delta’s Sky Club lounges.
The Delta Sky Club lounge offers hot meals, a variety of snacks, and many desserts for first class passengers. You can sit at the bar and order a cocktail or relax at a table until it’s time to board your flight. The attendant at the lounge will check you in and can go over the available amenities. If Delta does not have a lounge at the airport, first class passengers can use a Sky Tea lounge available through Delta partnerships with other air carriers.
At the lounges, you can charge your electronic devices, collaborate on a work project, or just relax and finish planning your vacation. Most lounges offer spa-like restrooms where you can shower after a long flight or just refresh yourself for your upcoming journey.
