Lounge review: ORD: SkyTeam
  • There are three Sky Team lounges at ORD
    • Delta lounge, T2, across from gate E4
    • Air France, T5, near M7
    • Alitalia, T5, across from M12

    The Delta Sky Club is open Sun–Fri: 4:45am–7pm, and Sat: 4:45am–5:30pm
    Free wifi for members and guests. The main room has a stand in the middle with coffee, and various snacks at different times of day. The back room holds the open bar, and that is where you will find bagels and a toaster in the morning.

    The back room of the ORD SkyClub, where the self service bar and breakfast bagels are to be found.

    The club was enlarged summer 2011, a wall near the front opened up to add an additional 20 seats.

    The Air France Salon is a small but pleasant place, with a nice view of the tarmac. Food offerings are excellent, including finger sandwiches prior to the AF departure. There is a back door that leads directly to the jetway, so that lounge visitors can have easy priority boarding. No bathroom- you have to go back into the terminal for that.

    The Alitalia Verdi Lounge is quite small, and doesn't have any windows. There is one computer for internet access, and a small self service bar with beverages, crackers, and an espresso machine. No bathroom here either.
