The only issue is when things go wrong there just aren't enough flight options in and out of CVG for contingencies.

Except for the CRJ2 I have to take to get there.

So let me get this straight, nobody uses it and they still continue to run flights in & out of there along with a skyclub?

Ah, I get it .... hyperbole

Although no longer a hub, CVG is one of the fastest growing O/D airports in the country...and DL still has about 50% of the departures.

Itís also dropped from the #2 most expensive airport to somewhere in the 50s. My only complaint these days is finding a damn parking spot LOL.

Stop with all of your facts! Dang it, I come on FT for all of the ridiculous hyperbole entertainment; why must you ruin my fun ?!?!?

Just don't tell them about the germs they'll encounter once on the actual plane

SFO has one of the better food selections, even though they don't change much.

The HNL club was packed to the gills yesterday around 4 pm; the LAX flight was delayed so that added to the MSP and ATL crowd. I liked the local Hawaiian touches like taro rolls, chili and white Calrose rice (local favorite), guava juice, and Hurricane Popcorn (Popcorn with Arare/Senbei and Furikake). A staffer was doing rounds with a coffee cart offering slices of various cakes and another staffer did a pass of Hawaiian Host chocolate-covered macadamia nuts. Nice job, Delta!

Interesting. It's been a while since I've flown through HNL so I haven't seen the new club and was wondering what food options they had. Looking forward to seeing it next week. Sounds like I may not need as big a dinner before showing up.

I recall seeing in HNL:

Calrose Rice
Chili (like Zippy's)
Tortellini
Creamy Chicken Rice Soup
Veggies
Breads
Maui-Style Chips
Hurricane Popcorn
Cookies

I think there was another entree as well.

I've seen that machine in E, and it's also been reported in T. Wonder if they have multiples or just move it around.

That's been in T for a while and I love it. Big selling point for that club.

But what do you eat it on / with? It reminds me of how the clubs used to have those little single serving packets of Nutella, which it was never very clear what they were meant to be used with (my opinion at that time was that they went on the Biscoff cookies, but those arenít in the clubs any more either).
