DTWclipper: "What lounges are you talking about? Lounge accessibility has nothing to do with elite status, or am I missing something?"
, lounges cannot be accessed with a day/year pass. The only way to get in is to be flying in Club (Business Class) or First class, or be a Silv, Gold, or Prem MBR.
(or OneWorld equivalent)
If your a Silv MBR (OneWorld sapphire) you have access to: The Executive Club Lounges, The Club Europe/Club World Lounges, The Terraces Lounges, and the Molton Brown Travel Spa.
Gold MBR (OneWorld Emerald): All above plus the First Lounges.
Prem MBR: All above plus Concorde Room.
If you are a Gold, Club, or First PAX, then you also have access to the Arrivals Lounges at LHR
, and JNB
If you are a First PAX, you also have access to the Concorde Room.
