    This is not going to reduce crowding at all in the SkyClubs, it’s simply a way for them to charge more for a pretty crappy product. Currently it’s busiest during peak business flying times, and most of those are Diamonds who will be in the lounge regardless.

    I have a legacy lifetime membership from the NW days.

    we Used the delta lounge in nrt and sea both ways on a trip, not even close to the lounges by asian carriers. all 4 visits the meger spread and few showers were a waste of time.

    raising the price of a membership is a bad idea for those that have to pay.

    Airlines are in a sweet spot. I am not saying it is easy to make money but reduced competition, reduced capacity and “fees” for just about everything has tipped the scale to the airlines.
    It seems like the united/us airways merger was a smart decision. Way to go DOJ.
    Maybe I am extrapolating liberally, but there has to be a correlation, right? Hey, it has always been what is good for big business is bad for the consumer.

    This rate hike is ridiculous. It is nice to get out of the crowds in the terminal, but certainly not worth this type of rate increase. My husband has been platinum the last 5 years, and we are seriously looking at not renewing his membership. Shame on you Delta.
