As of May 1, 2014, Delta no longer provides status-based access to third party lounges (lounges operated neither by Delta nor by a SkyTeam partner) for passengers departing on a Delta-operated flight. Based on reports in this thread, this does not apply to passengers departing the airport they're in on a flight operated by a SkyTeam partner: all other SkyTeam partners continue to provide status-based access to third-party lounges to all SkyTeam Elite Plus members, including Delta elites. Access to third-party lounges is determined by the policy of the operating carrier of the flight departing the airport.

Nothing has changed for passengers flying in business or first class on Delta.

From the link provided in the OP:

SkyTeam Benefits

LOUNGE ACCESS
Effective May 1, 2014, all Delta third-party operated international lounges will become Business lounges. (6)
  • On or after May 1, 2014, Delta SkyTeam Elite Plus passengers flying in the economy cabin will only have access to DL Sky Clubs and SkyTeam Lounges.

Thanks to all for the responses.

I just (re)discovered that my return is on Korean Air, departing at 1:30 AM out of Terminal 4. (I made the reservation months ago and had forgotten that wrinkle.)

My apologies.

I flew KE out of T4 in January. The Blossom Lounge (Priority Pass) was decent, including an "open air" area overlooking the concourse.

Flying into HND from MSP via Delta One service. Is there an arrival lounge for DL passengers? Could not locate on DL website.

No, I don't believe so.

There is not a formal Arrival Lounge, but there are two Sky Clubs, the PGA Lounge (PP), and Escape Club (Amex Plat/Cent) if you are connecting beyond MSP. If not, you dump out directly into the baggage claim after clearing customs. There is a Starbucks there

I think Wingtipflyer1 is asking about lounges in HND, not MSP. In HND there is no arrival lounge.

Hm. Yes, I misread that.

Any suggestions for a hotel near HND? We arrive at 10:30PM, so, I'd prefer not to venture into the city that late.

I stayed 1 night at the JAL City Haneda before an early morning flight. Hotel was fine, small rooms.
Subway to the city about a 5 minute walk.
Free transport to HND not sure how late?

DL's own flights don't arrive HND at 10:30 pm so it is unclear from your post which terminal you are arriving at. If you are arriving at Haneda's international terminal, the Royal Park Hotel Tokyo Haneda is attached to the departure level of the international terminal - can't get more convenient than that. I stayed there a couple of times when DL's flights arrived closer to midnight than they do today - very comfortable and quiet.

Thanks. Will pack a baseball cap along w/ dark sunglasses for HND to Hotel. Paparazzi seems to always get me when I'm worse-for-wear.

Also, any thoughts about seats 6 B & 6 C on a 777? To close to galley or quiet?

We ended up booking the JAP City Haneda West wing (or something close to that name). Looks interesting and has a free shuttle. We were looking at the hotel attached to the departures terminal, but the recent reviews were terrible.

Thanks!

We are arriving on Korean after an ICN connection. I'm looking forward to seeing ICN and the Sky Club there!

There's no SC at ICN. It's a lounge operated by KE, although I think there are two of them in the new T2 at ICN. Both are worse than the previous KE lounges at ICM, in both the (T1) main terminal and also the satellite terminal that was used by partner airlines.

The new terminal is OK. It seems spacious and has the cute information robots to greet people. However, don't expect anything luxurious.
