I think this is incorrect too, plenty of B2B people have done this without issue. What I find really puzzling is how the agent would know? The agent sits with their back to the passenger flow, with a solid wall behind them and no line of sight. Usually the turn around is about 45 minutes or an hour, so at the same time people leave the aircraft people are arriving into the lounge for the departing service. And lovely though the NCL lounge staffers are, being blessed with ESP isn't something I had hitherto associated with them. Unless it was an extremely long lounge stay, that is......
