TPG reader Tiffany tweeted me to ask:

@thepointsguy– “I’m flying JFK-SEA on Delta over the holidays and wanted to see if I’ll have SkyClub access before my flight?”

Well, without knowing anything about this trip or your situation, it’s hard to say. If you’re just flying in economy and you don’t have a credit card that gives you SkyClub access, then no. However, if you’re flying in BusinessElite, whether on a paid ticket or by using miles to upgrade in advance, then you can access the lounge. Even if you’re on a full fare Y ticket on a transcontinental flight, Delta will also give you lounge access.

If you have the Delta Reserve® Credit Card from American Express, the Platinum Card® from American Express, or The Business Platinum® Card from American Express, then you get SkyClub access, but not for any of your other guests. You could always buy a pass for $59, or $29 if you have another Delta co-branded card like the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express.

Hopefully you’re leaving from Terminal 4 at JFK; Delta has a swanky new SkyClub lounge there that you’ll surely enjoy!
