Fresh off of a red eye flight from Salt Lake City, I arrived at Atlanta airport tired and groggy at a few minutes until 6 in the morning. Although I was connecting domestically (Indianapolis in this case), I decided to take the ATL plane train down to Terminal E because the Delta Sky Club ATL Terminal E (along with the Sky Club in Concourse F) one of only 2 Skyclubs in the Atlanta airport to have shower facilities. Since I was not going home and going directly to a friend’s wedding, I put a high value on being able to shower and freshen up for the morning.
Delta Sky Club ATL Terminal E location and hours
The Delta Sky Club Atlanta Concourse E location is in Terminal / Concourse E, right near Gate E15
All of the terminals / concourses in the Atlanta Airport are connected airside by way of the “Plane Train”, which makes it easy to move from concourse to concourse. I arrived in Concourse A and it took me longer to walk from my gate to the main part of Concourse A than it did to go from Concourse A to Concourse E on the Plane Train.
The Delta Sky Club Atlanta Concourse E is open from 6a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. I got access by way of my American Express Platinum card, since I was flying Delta.
Delta Sky Club Atlanta Airport Terminal E showers
The main reason I went down to the Delta Sky Club Atlanta Concourse E was to take advantage of their shower facilities, which are located past the entrance, past the bar and all the way in the back of the club
I had not been here to the Sky Club in Concourse E before, so I had done a bit of research. Most of the information I saw was fairly outdated, as there are now 6 shower rooms
It is true that you’re likely going to have a wait to use the Delta Sky Club Atlanta Concourse E showers. I got there at 6:08 (only 8 minutes after the club opened, and all the rooms were already full and I was the 3rd person on the waiting list
Once your turn is up, the attendant (above) will call your name. I chose to just wait in the shower area (there are 3 chairs there). My wait was about 30 minutes, though by the time it was my turn to shower, there were (at least) 5 more people on the waiting list.
The showers themselves seem fairly new / updated
There are towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided. Contrary to the reports that I had read, there were no problems getting the dispensers to dispense and I enjoyed my “Sage” body wash and my “Peppermint” shampoo but opted not to use the “Cilantro” conditioner
I also saw a woman using a club-provided hair dryer, though I did not see razors.
Delta Sky Club Atlanta Airport Terminal E seating
There is ample seating located in the Delta Sky Club ATL Concourse E. Since I got there right after it opened, it was pretty empty and you could have your pick of seating areas.
I would imagine that later in the day things get a bit more crowded. The wifi was quick and one other thing that I noticed was that there was a room in the back that was partially curtained off that seemed to be intended for people trying to sleep (at least that’s what people were using it for when I was there!)
Delta Sky Club Atlanta Concourse E food and amenities
The Delta Sky Club ATL Concourse E had a decent variety of cold breads, pastries and fruit available
One note that I found interesting that I had not seen at other Delta Sky Club locations I had been to before (SLCl, CVG or MSP) was that there was also additional hot food. It wasn’t much but in addition to the oatmeal there were biscuits, french toast and spots for turkey and veggie breakfast burritos (though those were, tragically, empty)
All in all it was a pleasant time at the Delta Sky Club Atlanta Concourse E. Since I had heard such nice things about the Delta Sky Club Atlanta Concourse B, I decided that would be my next stop before my flight to Indianapolis
