When I initially booked our flight to Hawaii with Delta, we had less than a 2-hour layover at LAX. We’d have a late morning departure from MCO and enough time to get to our connecting flight.
I booked our flights several months in advance, so I shouldn’t have been surprised when Delta sent me an email alerting me to a change in our flight times.
We now have four hours in between flights to spend at LAX. Looking at the airport map, there isn’t much in Terminal 2 besides a few places to eat. That leaves the Delta SkyClub as the only option.
Delta stopped selling SkyClub day passes to anyone a while ago. There are several ways to gain access to the club and most of them involve having the right credit cards. I don’t have any card that provides access, but I could rectify that before our trip.
Is it worth the effort to get a credit card so that we’d have access to the T2 SkyClub at LAX? I’d have to pay another annual fee and still pay to enter the club. The lowest level card that provides access is the Platinum Delta AMEX and with that, we’d also have to pay $39 each to enter the club. If I want a card with access included, I’d have to get an AMEX Platinum or Delta Reserve card that only gives the cardholder access. I’d still be paying $39 for one guest.
Part of me thinks I’m crazy for even considering doing this but the other part says that if I can do it, why not?
Any thoughts from those who fly Delta through LAX enough to know if the SkyClub there is worth the effort?
