I'm not sure why everyone thinks that these meaningly gestures are an indication of a particular customer's "worth". There might be a million reasons the algorithm prompts an FA to say something to a particular passenger on a particular day and not another.

Don't take everything so personally.

Had mine (2MM) app. 6 weeks ago... nothing happened. Did choose the nice Hartmann briefcase... it's still sitting here in my office, I love my B&R. I'll find a worthy friend in need of some good leather to give it to.

Edit to add: I didn't care that nothing happened and wasn't expecting anything to happen. :-)

That’s what I was wondering. I didn’t get anything at 1MM, either (at the airport/end of flight, I mean). I got the customary gift selection, etc. in the mail later.

Ouch! That’s rough. I had a FC window seat for my 1MM, but it was on a boring (read: routine) ATL-MIA flight, which I’ve flown a thousand times if I’ve flown it once. I did suppose at the time that it was fitting for it to occur on such a regular segment, but as I zero in on 2MM, I want to try to plan for something more “exciting.”

Maybe his 3mm are worth more than mine....hehe
You’d think after 3MM he wouldn’t need a reminder to raise his seat.

They don't care about MQM, only MQD. And then they probably care more about margin than total.

Same thing happened to me. I gifted my wife gold, and they leaned over me to thank her for being gold.
