As many of you know (our customers who will be directly affected were contacted last week) in an effort to manage costs in light of record fuel prices, we’ve made the prudent business decision to close several of our secondary Crown Room Club locations at the end of this month. You can find a full list of updated locations here. At this time we will also be converting our BusinessElite lounges in Atlanta and New York-JFK into Crown Room Clubs to further streamline our efforts in these markets. Our international premium passengers will continue to enjoy BusinessElite-like amenities, including pre-flight appetizers, in these facilities.
Delta’s Crown Room Club product continues to be a major focus for us as we strive to provide our customers with a premium travel experience. You can count on receiving the same quality experience in our other clubs that you’ve come to expect. These changes are designed to strengthen our overall portfolio as one of the broadest airport lounge networks in the world.
Our members currently gain access to nearly 100 lounges through Delta’s own Crown Room Clubs and those of our SkyTeam® partners worldwide.
Later this year, we will open newly constructed facilities in Jacksonville, Miami, and Raleigh-Durham. We’re certain you will notice the upgrade to the lounge experience we provide in each of these markets. Our MIA location has been designed with the Miami scene in mind, including custom Maurice Villency furniture. Look for its opening, as well as the opening of JAX, this summer. RDU will open later this year.
