This was mentioned in the very long thread about the new delta.com, but it is apt to get lost in there.
The website now says that if you are flying FC you get SkyClub entry. Of course, this was always true if you have an international flight that day but there is no such restriction mentioned.
Instead, it reads:

Is this now the case or is it just a mistake on the website?
As a non-US resident, this would be good for me. I get SkyClub entry on days when I am flying internationally (both because of my Elite+ status and the fact that I take Biz/FC itineraries).
It would be ridiculous for me to buy a SkyClub membership for those very few days each year when I am on domestic U.S. flights without having an international segment.
My next itinerary, for example, is TLV-JFK, JFK-LAS, LAS-ATL, and ATL-JFK-TLV.
I will get SkyClub entry for all segments except JFK-LAS and LAS-ATL as I won't be flying to/from Israel on those days. Of course, LAS has no SkyClub, so in real life the only time I will miss out is before my JFK-LAS flight.
If this is not a mistake, and is really the case, I will be able to use the SkyClub in JFK that day.
they actually were on the phone last night from the LAX sky club with delta it support on the issue. Apparently the club matrons noticed it or had a f class flyer attempt to use it on day one. Might have something to do with its disappearance between last night and this am.
