    I am a DM member based out of Columbus...while a long shot, I would love to have a Sky Club in the Columbus airport. Any idea what the minimum requirements are for Delta to even consider expanding their network? The Delta terminal has plenty of free space, and I am sure the real estate costs would be less than expensive. I know what you are all saying...dream some more, as it will never happen, but a boy can dream...right???

    They don't even have one in DEN, and they have significant traffic (and want to grow but are constrained due to gates). The basic requirements are that the club has to sustain itself from the people I've talked to.

    For some reason PHL has one and BWI doesn't. PHX was closed and we won't even discuss LAS. DL's logic never makes sense, although we do know they prefer to pack as many people in the club as possible by any means necessary.

    Key Example: SLC, downgraded the quality and now they're packing it harder.

    Heck, I'm not even sure the "expansion" of E or addition of the F SC in ATL helped at peak times! ;)

    MSP F/G and DTW B/C were also Delta'zied to allow more packing.

    The addition of GM as ST Elite Plus (and one guest) also adds to the crowds. I know this was to match other ST program's, but it does add to the amount of people in the clubs...

    CMH...CSG is an airpot on life support and the power keeps failing. Only a matter of time before Delta ditches that as a "mini-hub".
