After finishing up some work at the Sky Club in Terminal A I walked down to gate A3 and prepared to board my flight. On the dot at 3:50pm the gate agent began the boarding process and, when first class was called, I walked down the ramp through the jetway and into the first and only door being boarded. The flight attendant Donnie was friendly as she greeted the passengers. I also saw Katlin from my first Sacramento flight on Thursday and she was working this flight as well.
I left the Delta Sky Club about 15 minutes before my fight was scheduled to board. My plan was to walk the MSP Airport Mall that runs from the F Concourse to the E Concourse and back – and then down to gate F9. I’ve always enjoyed this part of MSP, the Mall that is. The MSP Mall is funky, looks like it’s been there a long time, and has a decidedly Minnesota feel to it. It is utterly unique to any airport or terminal I have ever visited and I love walking through it. When I got to the end of the Mall by the E concourse I noticed a sign for Escape Lounge.
I had approximately an hour between arrival and departure for my connecting flight at Minneapolis. The gate my flight was leaving out of was F9, and so I decided to visit and review the Delta Sky Club in the F Concourse of the Lindbergh Terminal at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Wow, what a mouthful.
I exited gate F5 at Minneapolis and walked down the F concourse to F1 and the intersection with the G concourse. The Sky Club’s bright blue glass doors help identify the lounge as they are sort of hidden behind an elevator. Upon entering the lounge, I presented my membership card and was polity checked in by the friendly associate.
