The ATL B club appears to have the same seating density as pre-Covid. I do not sense that they removed seating to facilitate social distancing. In fact, the seating is so dense that I have to meander through the club to find a pathway wide enough for my rolling computer case.

Yep. Same experience last time I passed through there and E. I basically try to avoid B at all costs if I can, honestly.

A co-worker told me that ATL C was virtually full one morning this week and on the return in the afternoon no one was allowed in period.

My favorite is sitting upstairs or outside at F. Even when flying domestically. I detest B. Always a zoo.

Can't agree anymore!! We were there in March. We landed at concourse B so we went to the Sky Club B first.......and we immediate left for concourse F.
Sky Club Concourse B


Sky Club Concourse F (The Sky Deck really helped a lot but the "final count down" for shower room.....)

Waited 14 minutes (yes I timed it) at ORD on a Thursday last month. Seemed like they were doing one in one out. Once in, they had people escorting you in to show you available seats. They did bring out a cart with water and snacks for those waiting outside at least.

Thankfully there are lots of people that think it's the greatest, fLaGSHIP!! lounge. Let them have it. I'd rather take the plane train to A or C than wait for those slow elevators or walk up the stairs. I always go to F if time permits, but shhhh. I only stop in B if my departure gate is within a few gates and I don't have time to go anywhere else.

Last week I was in Seattle. Centurion lounge had about 30 people in line. It was one in, one out. SkyClub had no wait. It was busy, but we were easily able to find a table. They opened a second food buffet closer to the restrooms and most people didn’t seem to know was there.

MSP we opted for the Escape lounge. It was 3/4 full, food was much more limited than the SkyClub.

All of my flights last week (spring break for many) we’re packed. SEA was a zoo. Travelers are definitely back. I miss the empty terminals from last year

The worlds busiest airport midday on July 4, 2020 long weekend. I had a better chance of getting mugged than getting covid.

Passed by the D club in ATL today. Looked like the hottest club in town massive line stretching back towards the center point. I kept on walking.

This would piss me off. I got the Reserve Card a few years ago with this benefit in mind. My job reimburses club fees, which I dont pay since I have reserve card. If I knew priority was for paying members I would have happily purchased and expensed my club membership.
