HON Golden Ticket holders

a comment and a question.....few weeks ago while in LX F/HON JFK lounge i noticed this guy with a yellow golden ticket holder and his boarding pass with huge HON VIP signs printed on several different places (he made sure that all 6 of us in the lounge knew that he was very important! to a point of throwing his ticket on a table where three of were sitting while going to get a drink for himself) the other two guys that I spoke with were also HON's but had just a regular boarding passes

this is the first time I have seen something like this (i do travel LX form time to time but mostly LH)...is this unique to LX HON's? i am well aware of the LH red ticket holders for HON/F class pax

I have seen this ticket holder in GRU, its basically a golden version of the LH Red f class slip. looks exactly the same (but gold), has the LX fonts saying

FIRST CLASS
-
HON

on the top left corner instead of LH's first class only version.

That could have been me.
I always carry my passport and my bp in the shirt pocket. Not really minding which face it shows. Do I need to worry about not putting non hons off?

no body says that certain things are done on purpose, I have the same habit of keeping the passport and ticket on the shirt pocket...many times LH red ticket holder can attract stares

Same here.

Shall I really care, what the BP shows? What would be the problem with that? I mean, shall I take out my Rolex and put a cover on my LV bag as well (just as examples)...

well i don't really have this "problem" since i hardly wear shirts with pockets , but i do always look which side is visible because i don't want people to stare at my name really, even in the lounges...

sometimes it is a bit too obvious though for my taste with some people and their showing off the BP. but i certainly enjoy the look on their face when the dr. so-and-so types head to the bus and "slacker" sentom jumps into the limo...

You have shirts without pockets? Where do you put your Montblanc ball pen???
I am confused.
Valid point re privacy. But I guess the need to show off my hon seems to top that concern.

Why pay 10k+ or spend valuable miles for a First Class BP when you can get one and a holder for 1? The seller seems to be a "mere SEN", so some photoshopping might be necessary.

Hmm, I doubt that there is a standard how things are handed out.
I hand them my passport (in a black cover), with my courtesy card in it. They put everything in the back sleeve where there is a little compartment, I put it in my pocket and off I go. I really do not take note or care in which direction the bp faces.
The more I think about it, I will use a neck pouch from now on, just to make a bigger impression.
