Totally different circumstances....in the Hamptons you don't tip the staff because it's already taken care of by the classy host...in an airport lounge we're talking about about people who rely on tips from us. In the US it's cheap not to tip service people....It's called situational awareness. Lots of people don't have it, or class.
