If you’re flying Delta out of London, you now have access to the fabulous Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse before your flight. That’s because as of April 2nd, all Delta flights from London Heathrow to New York, Boston, and Seattle are using Terminal 3 at Heathrow, joining Virgin Atlantic’s flights.
That’s great news because all Delta Platinum and Diamond Medallion flyers on Delta or Virgin Atlantic flights have access to the Virgin Clubhouse, even when flying in Economy class.
Of course this also includes passengers in Business Elite class. And this is a big step up from the SkyTeam lounge at Delta’s prior Terminal 4. The Clubhouse is a lounge like no other, and even has a professional recording studio available for use.
But even more important, these Delta flights are now more convenient to central London as you’ll have a one seat ride on the Heathrow Express to Paddington station, with no need to use the inter terminal transfer train for Terminal 4.
There’s also a ‘Revivals’ arrivals lounge where you can shower if you’re arriving in Terminal 4. That’s only available if you’re traveling in Business Elite class though. Platinum and Diamond Medallions who are in coach aren’t able to access the arrivals lounge
Unfortunately other Delta flights from London are still at Terminal 4, including those to Atlanta, Detroit, and Minneapolis. And Delta flyers don’t have access to the complimentary spa treatments and haircuts available in the lounge – those are for Virgin Atlantic flyers only.
But to Delta’s most competitive markets in New York, Boston, and Seattle, you’ll get the best ground experience available for a U.S. carrier.
