Worst case, just walk up to the EK chauffeur lounge outside of arrivals. They'll likely hook you up even though you only have an 18 hour layover (at least one way).

If I have to renew my passport, do my long term foreign visas move along with them?

My passport is expiring in 2014. I have a 10 year India business visa that's a big sticker in my passport. I also have Global Entry with my current passport. Do these transfer to my new passport?

I hate sand, but love the ocean. I prefer hanging out at a pool with a wide, long view of the ocean beyond.

Don't worry, you'll get into the lounges, it will just take some insistence and persistence from your end. Just make sure they understand you're flying on AS miles, and that you're not EK staff.

You beat me to it. I immediately thought of this scene after reading the OP. I'm glad you were able to dig up the video. So classic "Are you going to throw me in airport jail????!!!!" Classic.
