Last week, Delta unveiled some changes to its SkyClub policies which apply no matter how you have access (i.e. American Express Platinum Card, Delta Reserve card, SkyClub membership, etc) – with the exception of invite-only Delta 360 members and Centurion card holders.

The changes were:

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

  • Flyers that access Delta SkyClub lounges will only be permitted to enter 3 hours or less prior to the flight except on connecting itineraries.
  • Passengers are no longer be able to use the SKyClub on arrival

In a rare move, Delta has backtracked on one of these changes as noted by Thrifty Traveler this morning.

The reversal applies to the use of the SkyClubs on arrival which will now be allowed again.

Plenty of high paying business customers may want to use the lounge on landing before heading to meetings, and I guess enough made noise to get upper management’s attention.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
