We don't know that he was on Delta, just that he was in the Sky Club. Perhaps that is the only club at JAX. He was NOT using it like a normal SC member.

I thought you had to be flying Delta to access a SkyClub, per the rules?

If you're a member, you don't . I flew AirTran into ATL once, and used the SC. I'll admit I felt a little guilty.

I think Delta can let in anybody they want to. They do let anybody in, who is willing to pay the daily fee. Not a far stretch to waive the fee for somebody "important" (however one might define that)... Sen Rubio is going to be spending a lot of time on planes the next few months.

Not too many Sky Clubs in IA or NH Any in SC?

What happened? Did he have a problem? Why they escorted him out? On what reason?

They were guarding him, Scotty. He's running for President. I think they escorted him out to catch his flight!

Maybe his group had enough SC Executive memberships to guest in everyone.
