2018 FB Card - have you got yours?

Just got home after some time away, expecting to find my new FB card waiting for me - but it wasn't there. Checked with a family member the other end of the country, and his hadn't arrived either.

Contacted Flying Blue... who told me that my card had been sent on 18 January!

It seems rather strange that two cards, sent to completely different parts of the UK, would both have got lost in the post... but then again, it's possible that this is what happened.

Have others received their cards?

I know I don't need it for most things these days (except for checking in at the lounges at NWI and HAM, both of which I will be using in the next few days), and I know I print out a temporary card, so this is not a tragedy... I'm just intrigued, that's all!

No experience at Norwich but I've always been able to show my electronic card (through AF/KL App or Apple Wallet) at Hamburg and most other airports (many don't even ask for it anymore, as long as the SkyPriority logo is displayed on the boarding pass and the card number appears on the back of the boarding card itself).

That aside, I haven't received mine either.

The membership number is no longer shown on home-printed boarding passes (ever since they changed the lay-out a few months ago) - which is why they now ask for the card at NWI, as they have to write the number in their little book (very low-tech!). I've got my number stored in my head but I'm not sure if they would accept that.

Not yet,

maybe we'll have a surprise with the new program (new logo? new card design?)

Best

Same here. The KLM Media App hinted at a refreshed look in their release notes a few days ago, so new cards might be on the horizon:

“... And on April 1st, discover Flying Blue’s new graphic identity on the KLM Media app !”

I live in Vietnam & received mine yesterday (30March)
I like the new design - with the changes & my new job, it'll be my last GOLD for a while....

Not a big fan of the Flying Blue for me part, but overall a step up from the previous card.

Hadn’t received mine in the UK as of Wednesday 28th. In YYZ for a few days so if I have to show mine I guess I’ll use the app.
