Gifts from SDs

I got these awesome pins from two different SDs on two different TPAC flights in the last few months.

Anybody else get any cool stuff from the SD or FA??? I am sure there are lots of stories of Kit Kats-to-go, small bottles of booze and sparkling wine, but anything else???

This is a fun thread. I have both of those pins, 2 Olympic pins, and a name tag. I would never mention the phone numbers and email addresses.

One time a Jazz FA invited me to "share" a hotel room. I'm not sure I made the right decision there.

Invitation to drinks with a mainline FA.

Both the pins shown in the photo (though a 7 year old helped with one of them - and it technically came from a VP, not an SD). I actually don't recall where/how I got the 80 pin.

Most recently, a hand-written thank you note on an AC card (fin 843 is on the front), expressing the SD's pleasure in having me aboard, and thanking me for my loyalty.

There are some other things, but the necessary backstory would potentially provide too much identifying information, and I don't want to get anyone in trouble.

If this thread has taught me anything, it's that I need to stop flying Y and start flying J.

... Just as soon as I get a real job...

The SD was too 'flighty.' I ended up with MrsITAG some months later, had 2 little fliers, and am left with fond memories.

See, this is why I tolerate Rouge. Today's lineup of mainline FA's are the same lineup of mainline FA's as you had in '86. Inapprops for me when I was 8, still inapprops at 39. Rouge mostly is 1/2age+7, so far as I can tell.

Only one? No SC or FB?

Clearly you haven't got the head tilt, hair flip and how to angle the air vent such that it gently blows your hair in the breeze (as you talk to the SD) down pat yet.
