At the beginning of the year, Delta announced that they’d be updating their SkyClub access policy, whereby standard memberships would no longer allow complimentary guesting privileges. Of course they did that due to member feedback, as a result of overcrowding. 😉

A couple of weeks later Delta announced that they would be testing enhanced SkyClub amenities on a limited basis. This included services, like shoe shines, chair massages, and manicures, as well as enhanced food, like pancakes, sandwiches, soup, dessert, etc.
Well, it seems they’ve conducted their test, and Delta will be rolling out some new SkyClub snacks as of tomorrow, August 14, 2014.
They describe it as follows:

Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
So I’ve gotta give them credit for making it sound like a lot. I guess when you break things down far enough, that’s easy enough. I mean, when they’re listing eight types of breakfast spreads, they might as well list all the ingredients while they’re at it, no? 😉
In all honesty, it certainly sounds better than what other US airlines offer. But I do think it’s a stretch to call these “lunch and dinner options,” and for that matter to call it fresh and nutritious.
I’m curious if any of the services they were testing in the spring, like shoe shine, chair massage, etc., are sticking.
What do you think of Delta’s new SkyClub menu?
