Brag tags for every medallion member

I don't know if this has been posted before, I just noticed the bottom of this page: https://www.delta.com/en_US/skymiles...llion-benefits

And everyone will get bag tags in 2019!

It looks like that only DMs and PMs will be the only ones to get tags sent out this year (Status earned for 2019) as it states that GMs and FOs won't get it until they requalify.

The big question is metal or plastic? I’ll vote that it’s plastic.

Hi, I'm John Doe and I fly X amount of miles per year. I think I should attach something to my luggage so everybody can also know. I don't get them.

Coolest part is official FO tag bearers get to board PREM with the DM whose bags theyíre carrying.

For some reason I thought PMs did not receive bag tags in 2018

You think Delta is bad....over here at AA they give AC members TAGS! Yes. They have zero meaning only to tell someone "hey look I'm an Admirals' Club member".

I laugh when I see one. When I got mine in the mail I promptly threw it in the trash.
CO-PLAT and jinglish like this.

I find the medallion bag tags useful for entering the Sky Priority check in area at airports where entrance is monitored by DL staff, rather than having to have a boarding pass out. Also, I like the DL brand and glad to be loyal to them and earn status, and I like having the tag on my bag. It's not at all about bragging for me.

I previously liked to fluant my Gold tags as I took my middle seat in the back of the plane due to my BE ticket.

On the contrary, you already have them attached to your bag. You have the new Invisible Elite status. You may enjoy all the rights and privileges pertaining to passengers travelling in steerage class.

I recall getting bag tags from EA and DL back in the 1980's just for being a club member.
Back then it was the Ionosphere Club and the Crown Room.

I want socks instead of brag tags in 2019.
Why brag with your bag when you can brag with your feet.
