Same as on credit and debit cards, even in the US.
I agree, but it's been called out before for me and others before here.

I've seen three new Silver cards that were issued in the last month belonging to members who have just requalified or been downgraded from Gold and all are of the old design. I don't know anyone of any status level who's got one of the new cards yet.

Are you seriously suggesting that a lounge person or check-in person believes expiry dates consist of month and day but not year?

The /12 bit clearly refers to the year.

Yup, had that called on me at FRA of all places about 18 months ago. They caved in quickly, though she was suspicious...

cheers,

Henry
Mine has BMI on the back as well... Not all Lounge Reps are smart enough to check on the back...

Erm ... then why would you say

Just got my new Gold card after qualifying for the first time.
It's still the old design.

Perhaps we'll be asked if we want to select the new card in future. For a fee of £5.

When can one expect Blue card package after 'landing' from Silver?

Mrs Roger was just 'enhanced' from gold to silver. Her new DC card and baggage tag have the blue OneWorld-ish logo and airline name in blue.
