It was a gentleman, he even asked if we wanted pictures, I was the only one who took him up on it, guess the others have done it before

how does this work if you have a long connection? do they drop you off and then pick you up from the club? thinking of sea where most domestic flights arrive near the club

I love the way people hide their faces in photos! What exactly is the point? Never understood this one! Be careful, someone might recognize you! So what!

At SEA, I've been in the Club a couple times where I've seen someone enter from the stairways leading up from the ramp, with the Porsches parked down below.

My second of the two transfers I received (both at LAX) was on a longer connection. I arrived at T2 and my connection went out of T3 approximately 2 hours later. I was shocked to see my name coming off the jetway but was escorted down to a Porsche and driven from our gate at T2 over to T3. I was dropped off at the area at T3 where you catch the buses to T2 and TBIT.

I would have declined it. My main goal is to stay out of T3rd World as much as possible and would much rather spend that time in the T2 SC than the T3 SkyCloset.

Yep, thats what they did on my one and only Porsche pickup was at SEA back on Feb, was on a MR that had me flying (stage) SMF>SEA>PDX, then on the PDX > SEA leg (with a 4+ hour layover) waiting to go LAX then GUA I was shocked to get picked up coming back thru SEA that morning. Didn't get a pix, but they were super friendly and she said she saw "I had a long day ahead of me, going to GUA" I then told her that not only that, i was turning around 1 hour after landing and the the whole trip from PDX>SEA>LAX-GUA>LAX>PDX cost 163 buck and I was upgraded on all legs 5 to 2 days before I left (both ways) I told her I certainly appreciated it and her work and colleges.

I'm curious why a car at SEA would have Georgia license plates.

Does anyone know if this policy has changed? I'll be connecting in LAX on DL to VA on an I fare ticketed/marketed by VA and curious if I would be eligible for transfer.

I have previously received transfer at LAX but it was DL to DL.

My first of two transfers was from DL to VA but it was ticketed by DL (Skymiles Award Ticket). Not sure if DL would be tracking your progress and need for a transfer if you're ticketed through VA. But you can receive a DL to VA Porsche transfer (and hey if your connection is running tight, you could always try reaching out directly to DL via Twitter to see if they can hook you up, even if VA isn't able to arrange anything).

well we were supposed to pull into E and my connection was in B, but then we ended up parking in B about three gates down from my connection. No porsche. I got viper'd off of my flight and moved to the next one, but I made it to the gate in time to get added to standby and re-cleared standby into an exit row seat.

A great Delta day all around. The morning JFK - SAN nonstop was sold out weeks in advance, so I booked JFK-LAX-SAN (40 minute layover). Cleared into D1 without using a RUC based on the new upgrade policy (it was tight - at boarding, I was #8 for 9 seats). Then in LAX, got the Porsche transfer form T3 to T2 after ATC landed us on the south side of LAX instead of north, cutting into my connection time.
