Now I fly to LAS every 2-3 wks and it is miserable without a SC
The CO PC is so convenient to the DL gates and is rarely crowded. IT is a must do on my visits to LAS.

IT was not a NW club but a AS club. NW was allowed into the club.

The US Air club is the SC lite in the mean time Had DL decided to put a SC lite in PHL in the interim, that is all we would ever have been given.

Yes, there was a Sky Club in LAS. It closed when Delta moved to the D terminal. That will be 12 years ago this summer.

At most airports in the UK, there are lounges where you can pay for admission at the door (or you can pre-book admission to them). I want to say that Servisair and Menzies are two of the operators of these lounges. I was in the Bristol (BRS) airport a few years ago, and even an airport as small as this one (and it is a very nice airport) had two airport lounges, one operated by BA, the other one by Servisair (I was on CO and got to use that lounge gratis).

Hanging out with soccer crowds as I do when I visit the UK, I can understand fully the time limits.

Ft. Myers Please

If Jacksonville and West Palm Beach can support a regular SkyClub, surely RSW warrants at least a light version.
