last week, I was flying on BA11 LHR-SIN in Y. In the final few minutes before pushing off, the senior flight attendant in Y came to my seat and said they recognised both my status (Gold) and title (Dr,) but there was no room in any other cabin for me. However, they would give me the food from "upfront". Also when they were doing the drinks, they gave me two each time. I found the proactive apology particularly strange, as i was on a Y ticket (fully flexible).

Have experienced that a few times from really motivated CSDs when I'm in Y or Y+.
Only been moved forward a couple of times once in CE and once to WT+ as I recall, but better food and drinks have come back to me most of the time, or a row protected for me to sleep in, or the seat next to me kept empty
It is always most appreciated, but at the same time I am also happy to sit in the seat I have paid for.
People demand recognition of their Gold when sat in Traveller... And, when it is done, it is deemed to be strange... I give up...
As a note on that... I pretty much always give people double drinks when I am doing the bar round... Just a force of habit I suppose...
On my Y-trip JFK-LHR I felt really recognized, crew chatted with me and also "protected" an empty row for me to sleep in It didn't feel strange, it was much appreciated but I certainly don't expect any better treatment when in Y.

I sometimes have to ask for a second mini-Diet Coke ...
Exactly... Those mini-cans are 150ml, less than half a regular can... Which I think is stingy.
If people order a spirit and a mixer, I always ask if they want one or two, and/or two mixers if they are only having one spirit etc... I also never mix any drinks like that when working in club, I don't know how people like to drink their G&t or V&T or Moscow Mule, or V&O etc...
