I don't see how this would make a significant impact to check-in times, could you elaborate on what you mean by "Everyone will need to be manually checked in"? A boarding pass is already required to be scanned to enter, so the only difference would be turning guests away if they do not meet the 3-hour rule. This still even applies to self-service check-ins, just have the screens deny entry for anyone who comes too early, but I don't really see how anything would change for people who have access and are visiting during valid time frames.

You do realize that these occupancy limits are government imposed?? DL can't simply say, oh well one more won't hurt.

I would happily skip going in club for voucher.

Depends on the voucher, I guess, but yeah.

no way, he used his "diamond" verbal pass and it worked.

Another thread pointed out some clubs are getting signs to allow 360, D1 and Diamond guests priority access - as it should be. I'd also add paid members to that list.

Yeah. Someone who spends $500/year to be a member (or get it via choice benefits) should have priority access as opposed to someone who simply has access to the club as one of many the many perks on their credit card.

The comparison is to Diamond, 360, and D1 passengers.

I mentioned this in another thread and people threw a fit saying everyone is equal. But they'll defend boarding groups lol.

Hmmm... and for the last remaining Life-timer, who are at or nearing senior citizen age, have to make way for the freshly minted 360, Diamond Medallion, or Delta One..... have to wait in line?

Jiburi

....and bit off the subject, "Diamond Medallion" needs a more impressive logo than just "type face".

For that SC I can understand it given the size. Are these in place at the other ATL clubs? I won't find out until next week.
