Dude, just suck it up and buy a pass. It's $400/year, so at 100 flights a year, that's only $8 a week. I don't know about Deloitte, but ACN pays for lounge access for M and above.

Also... yeah it's pretty ratchet... hence my hesitation

I'm a 🤵🏻(no mustache though).. SA1 are you suggesting that I lollygag around the lounge entrance until someone invites me or just commenting to express your saltiness that I don't want to pay for it...?

SM and above at Deloitte

Shame on you OP

After having access this year for free I would gladly pay for it now. The bathrooms and lack of loud music playing in every freaking restaurant is worth it.

Deloitte doesn't pay for airline lounge membership for managers. But in extreme cases of delay, it's ok to buy a day pass and charge it in. I personally try to minimize my time at the airport and book short connecting times. It works in 90% of the times, so I feel that the year membership is a waste of money.

Its not a waste of money D3. You are just lucky.
