AC S*X?

I was looking at a chart for meal priority on the way to the bathroom and noticed that AC S*X (perhaps spelling issue) has precedence over SE? It was on same level as MM I believe.

This doesn't affect me since I have no status but I thought SE was the big shots on AC? There are levels above SE?

Could it have been AC*SM?

Super Elite Million Miler?

I've never seen a code that was not [AIRLINE]*[STATUS].

The AC ones are: SM SE DM D EM E F P. And maybe one for VIP? But it's always AC*xx.

and how do you know it has precedence over SE?
Manifests are in order of seating, not status.

Only ones higher than SEMM are VIPs.

It was HKG-YVR, I was in premium economy and outside the washroom was a page.

Top half: Passenger seating and meal preferences
Bottom half:
Chicken: list of numbers, 11 was circled, first 11 crossed off
Beef: list of numbers, 11 was circled, first 10 crossed off

At bottom:
Priority or order
VIP: AC * X AC * MM_________ (seperator) _______ AC SE


Cow's right I probably remembered the * as a S :P Lack of sleep haha

I've been informed since my post that X is VIP, and there may even be multiple levels of VIP.

I'm going to just say I know very little about VIP.

That would make a lot of sense since:
Others have posted pic of document that mentions RED VIP, while I have most def saw black VIP tags- like pure black with no maple leaf background design (Which I assume its the higher level?)

I guess the last part to solve this mystery is if anyone seen a Red VIP tag

In 2014 P25K was red.
In 2016 E75K is red.

"Old" documents about colors probably don't mean much.

I'm completely speculating here, but it's possible the VIP designation is similar to the MM designation, in that it attaches to the status you earn.

So AC*X is a CEO who rarely flies, but AC*SX is a CEO who flies 100k AQM.

carp, I thought there was just one VIP level. I mean, if you think about it, SE is like probably single-digit percentage of Altitude member base. And VIP is like mainly hand-picked people right? So it would be even fewer

I wonder what the different VIP levels are called ... VIP Prestige, Eh-leet VIP, Souper Eh-leet VIP?

What if VIP is traveling with family, would family members (wife and son/daughter) be classified VIP?

When I've travelled with no/low status people, they're often treated as "SE".

i.e. when we misconnect, we both get rebooked on whatever I tell them.

For meal orders, I'm first and they're last. I would expect VIP to be the same.
