I was all excited when I received a free pass from Delta to visit one of its Crown Room Club airport lounges.

As much time as I spend in airports, though, I haven’t been able to use the pass.

Because it expires on July 31, I don’t want this to go to waste: someone out there deserves free drinks while killing time during a layover!

I’ll be sending this week’s freebie–a one-visit pass to Delta’s Crown Room Club–to the first person who posts a link to their Matador profile and who includes their expected destination in the comment.

And if you don’t win it, check out this video, which shares tips for getting access to airport lounges:

In case you’re curious, the following airports have Crown Room Clubs:

Chicago O’Hare
Dallas/Fort Worth
Ft. Lauderdale
Kansas City
New Orleans
New York (LGA & JFK)
Salt Lake City
San Diego
San Francisco,
San Juan, PRSantiago, Chile
Sao Paulo, Brazil

    I am off to Tela Viv Israel on a mission trip by way of Atlanta on a pass with Delta early tomorrow AM 1/19/09. I have to wait at the airport from 10AM to !0PM to connect to TLV so a day pass to their crown room would be a gold blessing to me!! Thank you any one out there in a position to help!
