News from a recent blog posting at the Points Guy reports that Delta Airlines is getting into the grab-and-go experience. This will enhance the options for people short on time. I think this experiment will help with lounge crowding and will work like other to-go options operated by Air Canada, Capital One, Chase, and United Airlines.
The grab-and-go locations will open in May 2023 and be located in the lobby area of two Sky Clubs at two different airports.
- Atlanta - Hartsfield International Airport (ATL), Concourse B (near B18)
- New York - Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Terminal 4, Concourse B (near B51)
They will have many food options, including sandwiches, fruit, and snacks. They appear to still be working on the name for this concept. Based on what I have read, it will differ from the Delta Sky Club Express locations found in Boston (BOS) or New York (JFK).
I recently had a tight connection in Detroit (DTW) last month. Luckily my gate was right across from a Sky Club, so I was able to pop in and grab a quick snack and a drink. I was only in the lounge for 10 minutes. If there was a grab-and-go option, I preferred to take my food onboard. I look forward to checking this out next time I am in Atlanta or New York.
