My new BD*G card a few days ago. Sadly it is the old card design that came through.

I renewed 8 months ago and still haven't seen either a new, old, or well designed card in the mail...

I know where the problem is - you all have status

I 'landed' to Blue from Silver a month ago, and this came in the post today:



Very clear and obvious what airline it is!

On a side note, there was no "buy up to Silver offer" in my Blue pack [not that I would need it anyway].

Here's what I wrote last March...

and given the adjustments to the airline and the frequent flyer programme, it's no great surprise that it's taking a while to get through the pile of old style Gold cards.

Got it!

I lost my Gold card (somewhere in Milan? maybe?) and called up to request a new one. The shiny new replacement card I received today has the new design

Key features:
Much, much bigger Star Alliance GOLD logo/wording in the top left hand corner
British Midland International wording and bmi oneworld globe in the top right corner
kt74 is online now

Got mine today as well. Looks much better - good improvement, BMI!

Am I in the minority here by preferring the existing (gold) card???

I have no problem with the larger *G symbol but the BMI logo is not in keeping with the darker style of the card (someone will now seek to educate me on colour contrasts etc but i shall remain unmoved!)

Oh for goodness sake, .

The card is there for two purposes - functional, and then brand value effect. Without the airline name on it, and illegible *G symbol it was not fit for the functional purpose.

If this will end the challenges (experienced a few times - by me and others - including with LH group airlines!) when using the card, then it is a huge improvement!

Yes I know it should have positive brand bits *as well*, but if it is not up to the functional jobs, asthetics simply don't make up for that.
