ATL-B and people are coughing a lot.

Id suggest being seated next to one of those opaque sneeze guard dividers in the club

I am TERRIFIED to even sneeze/cough in the airport, skyclub or on the plane. It's just the state of the world right now, but its odd. I feel a normal cough coming on after a sip of water went down the wrong way and i try and stifle it if i can. Just don't want any stares. Or if i have to blow my nose, i find a quiet corner, crouch over and sneak it in like im taking a hit of a drug or something.

Completely agree...not sure why so many people typically (and not just in these days) are cool with open mouth coughing, blowing their nose, sneezing into their hands, etc., in public places. Sometimes I haven't had a choice and had to travel when sick, but I guarantee you no one else knew because it wasn't hard to invest <$10 in cough drops and cold medicine.

And absolutely allergies can happen all year. I live in FL and Flonase and Visine are a year-round thing.

As of Jan 4th, the SkyClub at ATL A center point was NOT open. No reason was given on the sign.

JFK-T4 has no warm breakfast options that I could tell....maybe thatís not new? Their lunch options a couple of months ago were pretty good and warm dishes.

Not even oatmeal? That would strike me as odd.

DL needs to limit capacity in the SCs by taking out seats to allow for social distancing. You canít really expect there to be good mask compliance or enforcement in the SC which is essentially like a bar/restaurant which has people constantly eating/drinking.

I have two SC passes from when I had the Reserve card. Is DL accepting day passes?
Also can you still use them if not a Reserve card holder any more? Still in My Wallet and have a 12-31-21 expiration date.

There was a discussion somewhere upthread (or maybe in a different thread before). Per the T&Cs, I don't believe you can use the pass if you are no longer a Reserve Card holder (the pass can only be used when accompanied by a reserve card holder).

If you did still have the Reserve card, I believe you would be able to get a guest in.

Some new food selections at MSP. The new chicken curry pita sandwich was quite tasty--the only sandwich post-COVID I dared to eat--the others sounded gross.

They seem to have replaced the Saran-wrapped noodles in a cup with some "Asian noodle bowl" that appears to have been packaged in the SkyClub kitchen. I initially tried to eat it straight, but it didn't seem right... so then I added the hot "vegetable broth" in the water warmer but then I wasn't sure if that was right either . Club seems to be staying busy later than normal tonight.

Why isn't Delta using the C gates? It's my favorite club. If Delta really cared about "keeping people safe" they would spread out over all of their gates to reduce crowds.
