Busiest DL station w/o a SkyClub?

Just curious . . . what is it it? Every time I pass through BWI it seems like it has enough DL service to justify one.

Vegas would be my guess.

Vegas has a Centurion Lounge, making a SC unnecessary.

I would think PHX or LAS but maybe that’s because I spend more time at these airports.

A SC is not 'unnecessary' because not everyone has access to Centurion, at least not for free.

I'll nominate Houston Bush. There is a KLM (or something) lounge which will allow you access, but it's so far from the DL gates it's useless. If you are trying to standby for a flight, you don't have enough time to get to and from the lounge between flights.

MCI is fairly busy and does not have an SC

PHX. It'll be nice to have one SC with that many flights departing from PHX!

I second Austin. I always thought it was weird that there was an admiral's club and a united lounge, but never a DL lounge.

I use it every month. With pre, I use the Terminal E security checkpoint, walk to the KLM lounge and wait there until 20 minutes before boarding. Then walk to the train and ride to A. I still have time to louse for a few minutes.

I see your point with standby though, it wouldn't be useful in that situation. And terminal A is a dump.

I wouldn't presume that flight count, mainline flight count, or passenger count is the sole criterion for where DL (or any legacy carrier) places clubs.
