I wasn’t even planning on visiting the Delta Sky Club at SAN this morning, as I was hoping to wander terminal 2 and do some aviation photography before my flight to Detroit. The weather wasn’t on my side, however, so I decided to splurge on a one day pass to the lounge. I’ll come right out and say that the price that Delta charges for this pass is ridiculous ($50) but it was worth it just to see it so I could write this review. It should be noted that if you use your Delta Airlines American Express card, the cost drops to $25 – assuming you just want one-time access to that particular club (and not any others at other airports that day). But $50 is required for a full 1 day pass which is good for the entire calendar day.

Both the Delta Sky Club and United Club have recently relocated to the new terminal 2 extension at SAN, and they are both located next to each other upstairs above the food court. I have already reviewed the United Sky Club, so I was anxious to see how Delta’s compared.

Overall, the club is open and bright, and it offers seating both inside and an area outside overlooking the food court with downright awesome views of the action out on the ramp.

The food spread wasn’t all that impressive, but there was a nice selection of light breakfast items such as pastries, fresh fruit, and cereal.

One of the most awesome toilets I’ve seen in any airline lounge. How cool is this??

So, was it worth the $50 one day pass? No. However, it is a really nice place to spend time between flights – assuming you’ve earned your membership for “free” as a status benefit.
