I'm pretty sure the same would be happening in the States if the drinks were free in the lounges . At least judging by the number of complaints about drink chits not being handed out in RCC.

My goal is to hit the gate 12 minutes before the scheduled take off time for UA flights. The jetway is typically completely empty and I can take my seat. When flying domestic F there is always space in the closet for any carry ons you might have. You just have to ask nicely.
