I received my package about 2 weeks ago.

Have not replaced any of the tags missing from my luggage yet, as I have not had the time to go to the hardware store to get some



Slightly related matter... I suggest checking your metal tags from time-to-time. No, not just the too-easy-to-come-loose strap. There is another issue.

Apparently, the tags are laminated from two sheets of metal. An examination with a hand lens confirmed this for both last year's and this year's tags.

The concern is that one of my tags, after typical baggage hold abuse, had become de-laminated at one of the corners and a 3/8-inch portion of the thinner layer of metal had been bent up to make what would likely have been a very effective cutting edge.

Just a heads-up.

Still nothing for this PM.... I haven't called in. The only thing I want to make sure I don't miss out on is the JWD's.

Medallion Credentials (2016)?

Packet came in the mail today. PM in ATL.

PM card, two ice scrapers...I mean bag tags, two JWDs, an SPG crossover flyer, and a nice letter "welcoming" me to PM status (for the fourth year in a row...) and saying my drink coupons are in the app.

I wish they sent more JWDs. Do they really expect people who fly 75k miles a year to only have two exceptional service experiences? Last year mine were gone by April.

Mine arrived today. I echo all of your comments, except that this is my third year as a PM.

Also, I recently had two good experiences on AA, where I have no status. I am probably on going for GM on DL this year, and alternate trips with AA.

I figured out what to do with the tags tonight. There was a family with two children who were excited about flying on their first airplane and on their way to MCO. I have the last 3 years' tags in my briefcase as spares and gave one each to the two children. Mom helped put them on their backpacks and then I gave the Mom and Dad my drink certs, figured they were going to need them.

Well done. I like your style.

Great idea. When they use to print HOOU on boarding passes and I got upgraded at the gate I would give them to people waiting at the gate and they loved it

PM in DC, no packet yet. Been PM for about 5-6 years. Always had my new card before the old on expired.

I find it funny that last year Delta made a big deal of #BragTags and this year they've eliminated them except for PM/DM.

That's roughly when I qualified. Hopefully I'll see mine this coming week.
