Under-21 in Delta SC

Has anyone under 21 ever had luck at DTW/other self-serve bar sky clubs? Iím PM with a membership and have always been rejected at DTW, but curious if other places are less strict.

(Annoying that all three clubs at DTW do this, luckily not my home airport. )

DTW has four SCs.

Also, MSP has one SC with bartenders (and a "luxury" bar) and one without, so that the alcohol is self serve.

I was about to say that MSP is the only place that has a SC with bartenders and another one without, but I'm guessing JFK and maybe LGA have the same, although the lounges are in different terminals. ATL is all bartenders.

I am not aware of any self serve JFK unless you count the AF lounge in T1 (I do not know if that is "legally" SC or AF).

KE lounge at LAX/Bradly if that dive counts is one. SFO? What do the Asian friends use?

I haven't been through LAX T2 in a while, but it was self-serve while T3 is bartended.

That would be nice if true. Anybody know?

I really hate the concept that I have to wait around for somebody to serve me something I could just grab.

KE lounge at JFK T1 was self serve when I last used it, but of course it's not a SC.

BTW, Escape (AmEx) at MSP has bartenders as does the PP PGA lounge.

The CLUB (PP) at ATL has bartenders too.

Yep LAX T2 is self-serve and if I recall correctly from last month, one of the two horrendous temporary SCs in T3 is self-serve and the other one has a bartender.

I was never turned away when I was under 21. Once an MSP SC agent told me to stay away from the beer, but I thatís about it.

Just say that youíll promise to stay away from the booze. Youíre a medallion with a club membership after all. Itís a ridiculous policy.

This is correct - I was there the day before yesterday. The smaller side in T3 is self-serve.

If Delta lost a liquor license at a hub airport due to alcohol consumption by a minor there would be enough whining on Flyer talk to break the internet.

I think they are doing their best given the circumstances.
