Agree on B10, but with a 4.5 hr layover, I'd say it's well worth the ~10 min (each way) to get out to the F SC.

I was in LAX Sky Club last week during mid day travel and was sorely disappointed. LAX had hot soup (poblano cheddar=yum!) but no other hot food items. They had a selection of cucumber/cheese sandwiches and that was about it it. UGH.

I have 3.5 hour layover tomorrow in ATL and curious what to expect.
Was there week before last, late afternoon so perhaps in between some of the more major meal times if that makes a difference. They had some sort of hot chicken thing, a warm flatbread/pita, and perhaps a pasta? Two soups as well though I didn't pay attention to what they were, and the usual cold salads/carrots/etc.

So yes, more food options than "normal" SC fare, and the chicken/flatbread stuff I ate was just fine, but nothing to write home about. Having a Sweetwater 420 on the SkyDeck during the summer, though...that's some good stuff.

With that kind of layover I'd be heading straight to F even if I flew into T. Assuming it's not raining or 95F outside I'd have myself a drink and just sit out on the Skydeck and enjoy the views.

Do any of the SkyClubs still do the "Delta One Dining" or whatever it's called, if you're flying on a D1 ticket? I got that in (I think) the E SkyClub about a year ago. Was/is that only in E?

IIRC they very briefly did that in both E and F, but stopped after just a few months. Nothing special for the D1 tickets I've flown since maybe October of last year.

No but usually 3 hot snacks options plus 2 soups - definitely a notch up on other skyclubs

Best SkyClub in ATL

I found an older thread that had this, so I wanted a fresh opinion from our folks who travel through ATL often. Which terminal is the best SkyClub in ATL airport?

Hard to peg down, so I'll order as so:

Best bar and views: B
Best food: E
SkyDeck?: F
Least busy: T
Small but classy: C37
Average SC: A17 and A center
Cave-like: D27
Basically a closet, avoid: D12

My favorite club in ATL is the new club in B Center. It has great views and a really good bar. The food is what you would normally expect in a Sky Club. If your flying domestically, it probably won't be a far way from your gate.


Here is a picture I took from a visit late at night when it wasn't crowded.

The views in B are overrated. It's got great views of ramp traffic but pretty crappy runway views, especially for the south runways, and the staff like to keep the shades down

Another vote for B center - buffet refreshed often, plenty of seating, nice bar ambience (tad noisy).
Then E - find some quieter nooks.

Which one of these has the single, unisex bathroom? I want to say it's C37...

C37 has separate bathrooms. It's one of the D clubs, but I'm not sure which one since avoid them like the plague but I would guess D12.
