More to the point, what I am saying is this: Shouldn't CO have something in my account saying something to the effect of "Elite Airport Services". That would let me know before I take my next flight that my boarding pass will say "Elite Access". I shouldn't have to wait until check-in time to find out something is amiss and then scramble to have it fixed. Right?
If I am not mistaken -- you do need to book said tickets on said PP MC! I'm not so sure that for flights booked on other cards -- that the 'Elite Access' benefits necessarily apply! I know this is true for the waived baggage fee benefit!
