I totally agree with you, it is a fine line between being prudent and paranoid. Not trying to come across as the later.

I received 1 back in 2017. We were flying ATL to HNL on flight 837. Thought it was very nice of the FA to take the time to write. It sure was better than the CD case that DL sent me when I became a Million Miler.

This. I heard them thank Diamonds once, when I was seated next to one, so when the thank us lower status members as well makes it feel extra special.

I get these once or twice a year, but not enough to detect any rhyme or reason. Perhaps the newest classes of flight attendants are being trained to do this.

This reminds of me about three years ago, when Delta clearly forced captains or first officers to come out of the cockpit and make their pre-departure announcement from the galley or forward cabin. This lasted a couple of months. There were even post-flight surveys asking if it happened. Then for a while the captain or first officer started to stand in the galley after the flight and thank passengers as they disembarked. Delta also asked about this in post-flight surveys. Eventually, both stopped though occasionally you still see it.

This happens more often than not in my experience. YMMV I suppose.

I seem to get these pretty consistently on intercontinental D1 flights. Haven't ever received one on a domestic (or in coach) that I can remember.

From time to time

I think it really depends on the FA...I've had quite a few come through the cabin and thank us.

My favorite was when I was flying with my lowly not-even Silver husband...we both have the same initials...so of course she thanked HIM for his status. We laughed as we said "Ummm...you need to thank HER.."

I'm still waiting for my first one... DL should really do this more often. It would be appreciated.

Except nobody can write cursive anymore and you wouldn't want to see my writing; a weird mix of printing and cursive that most people can't read.

I think even people without the best handwriting can pull it off. It would enhance the experience.

Sorry Mark - honestly thought these were fairly common. Received this one in an envelope on my last transcon flight home from AMS with all the FA names on it. This particular crew was wonderful!

I received one once, then the FA said I'm sorry, and took it and gave it to the person in front of me.
