pedals? That may be a problem - petals perhaps, though.

That will only happen of you reach Kettle Kryptonium status.

Laugh all you like but there are a few DMs around here that wish it were true as the "faux Medallions" are diluting and watering down their benefits, along with a terrible loss of exclusivity.

not a lot, but you need to sport the right attitude and pay even the shoe shine guy with your AMEX card.

2) will I get gree soup at DTW ? lol
yes. however, it will be inventory controlled. you only get it if they have clean green cryptonium dishes available.


3) do I get a hat as well ?
hat, socks, underwear... the works.

4) will the captain salute me when I board the aircraft ?
Actually the captain wont be able to because he/she will have to park your car that you used to drive up right to the plane across the tarmac.


5) does it come with a direct line to RA ?
yes. 24/7 will be forwarded to homephone/cell phone as needed.


6) will FO's be allow to even say high to me ?
Depends. If he had to stow them in the overhead bin to give you an empty seat next to you in FC, this may be a bit hard.

7) will my upgrades clear 30 days in advance for domestic travel, and 15 days in advance for international travel ?
[/quote]

Domestic upgrades will clear as you book the travel no matter what fare class, even if we have to stow a FO . But international travel: No luck. But instead of having to by an M fare, you have the option to buy a secret M&M fare that will only cost you twice of what an I fare costs.

(Forgot to mention: You may qualify for some unpublished international upgrade awards, but your boarding pass will be stamped as Non-Revenue in large fluorescent letters to make the other passengers throw food at you during the flight)

I need an MP3 of the sounds that these tags make so I can respond appropriately when I hear a Kryptonium Medallion approach.

It has to have a more noble sound than the mere "jingling" of the DM tags. Will trumpets play? Maybe a full orchestra? Will I confuse it with the voice of God?

If FO's are not allowed to speak to DMs, they will most likely be forced to avoid any direct eye contact with KMs.

You can still make them carry your bags however.

To answer a few questions...

Yes I am really printing these... They will be actual luggage tags ready for use. Not going to sell them as I wouldn't want to incur the wrath of Delta - but I'll make several hundred pieces. Just ask for one and I'll hand um out. I hang out in ATL and DTW lounges quite a bit. (matter of fact I'll be in DTW waiting the HK flight around noon tomorrow)

Maybe I should add "entitled to free HOOS coupon..." See if any FA's go for it.

You'll notice on the card that interstellar upgrades are free but Earth international still has that darn Y,B,M requirement... sigh...

No - FO's are not allowed to look at you as they are not immune to Kryptonite. They become ill and usually fold up like a lawn chair within 60 seconds.
