For my teenager and kindergartner spring break from school, I always plan a trip to someplace warm. Living in a state that is freezing half the year, it is pretty much a rule that everyone takes a trip to escape the icy roads. Last month I took a quick poll for places to visit and that I could find enough seats using frequently flyer miles. Hawaii had the most votes.
Fast forward a month and now we are in Oahu. (Shh…I’m undercover so I can’t share my hotel yet.) Based upon information shared from the fine folks in the Delta forum at Flyertalk and MilePoint, I decided to include the route Atlanta to Honolulu for Delta’s A330 aircraft.
We woke up early to catch a flight from my hometown to Atlanta and didn’t have time for breakfast. My solution was to eat in Delta Sky Club Lounge in Concourse E by Gate 14. Using my new American Express Platinum card, we were able to go into the lounge at no extra cost.

The lounge was bright and clean. Seating was plentiful at the tables and upholstered chairs. (Delta is in the process of combining Sky Club by Gate 14 and 15.) Staff was plentiful, friendly and helpful. Perhaps they were friendly because they had plenty of time to visit with each other.
I didn’t see any Biscoff cookies or fresh fruit but they did offer the following:
- Hot plain oatmeal with mix-in choice of brown sugar, yellow raisins, cinnamon and granola. (Teenager said it was very hot and tasted okay.)
- Yogurt with granola and yellow raisins to mix-in. (What’s up with all the yellow raisins?)
- Plain bagels with topping choice of Smucker’s Peanut Butter, Smucker’s Strawberry Jelly and Kraft cream cheese.
- Mini muffins – chocolate and banana.
- Fig Newton bars/cookies. (Delicious!)
- Mixed yogurt trail mix thing.
- Hot beverage machine with a variety of coffee choice, milk and hot chocolate. (Tip: Cappuccino is delicious and the kids loved the steamed milk.)

Between wrapping up a few tax returns, lounging by the ocean and playing with my kids, I’ll try to post some information and pictures from our flight in economy comfort. Unfortunately I could only find first class seats for 180,000 miles/ticket though I did get complimentary economy comfort for being a Delta Gold Medallion.
