Current membership kit contents

Does anyone here have a photo of the current contents of the bronze/silver/gold membership kit contents ie. obtained when gaining a status level?

ISTR our last Gold renewal packs just contained the memebership card with no luggage tags.

Not been ‘promoted’ for a while, though, so can’t comment on that.

Hi,

Likewise my last recent Gold renewal pack just had the welcome letter and the membership card.

Regards

Got a silver and a bronze in our household in the last 2 weeks. Both same, membership card, letter and 2 bag tags. Both were people new to that status level.

I don’t have a photo, but - to the best of my recollection - my Gold welcome package (when promoted from Silver) contained the following:
  • two luggage tags (with two black straps)
  • one membership card
  • one welcome letter
  • one Golden Ticket and a small piece of paper which gave a URL to submit further compliments
IIRC, I received this around August 1 (of this year), so fairly recently.

Achieving Gold as per Infinite Possibilities post

Renewing Gold = new card and a golden ticket

I got my pack this week, renewal of GGL. Contained card, Golden tickets, and luggage tags, but no straps for the tags, which I found a bit odd.

What's the black sheet with gold lettering?

Thanks everyone for your input. Does anyone have a photo of the bronze/silver kits?

I'm surprised BA still issues plastic cards. There must be a few pennies to be saved there.

No exalted GGL for me ....just Gold. On recent renewal (couple of weeks ago) I received new card, golden ticket, accompanying letter, and that was about it.

Ref your strap-less luggage tags .... hmm .... odd indeed (though perhaps no great surprise !). Even Oman Air managed to include (quality) straps with their Gold pack.

just received mine. It had the new card, letter and 2 luggage tags with straps. Not that I care about luggage straps. I find it cheesy to walk around the airport with the Gold Tag on one’s hand luggage.
No Golden ticket at all.

@ BA6948 - like you, I never bother with the luggage tags either. My comment was more by way of reference to the absence of straps mentioned above by RichP.

As an aside ...... interesting to see that the missing bit in your ‘pack’ was the Golden Ticket. You gotta love the apparent variation in range of content received by so many of us. But then ..... I guess it wouldn’t be BA without the familiar inconsistency

As I say, they are inconsistently inconsistent. As for the Gold, they might have assumed I don't need as I am used to rant a lot about their service in Y!
