Whatís on your notes?

So I had a little nosey at my profile on the pursers tablet yesterday

my life time EK miles are 1.8 million (not bad in 5 years when I donít travel for work)

apparently i like dom Perignon and loves dom rose

also a big fan of napa wines like the mascot 2009

oh and I like the sheepskin blanket as well as a duvet

🙂

Ha! I was shown mine last year too after the purser took pity on me being rebooked on my connection:
  • Find aisle access if not already seated there
  • Preference for French reds
  • Espresso and OJ before breakfast service after sleeping
  • Very friendly, please give great service (Majid)
I'd say I can tell that someone has read this about 80% of the time. I reckon I have so many because pursers really take notice of certain pax on the ULH routes ex-AU.

That can't be right surely... !

That's over 500 trips to Manchester!

Just checked my travel, and I've done 860K miles in 484 sectors since 2005.

I do like the attention to detail there. And - more importantly - the fact that you can see the benefits in action on a regular basis ^

Maybe it's Skywards miles, not BIS or tier miles?

Definitely interested to see mine but I think in Y there might not be any notes

I would imagine mine to be something like:

1.Snores loudly, turn him on his side when he starts
2.Farts in his sleep. Caution when doing number 1.
3,Gets paranoid when thereís a bit of ice outside. Just humour him - I Thought The Wings Were Iced Over On My EK Flight. Would You Report It To The Crew?

😬

You know what good question, i have never asked what is on my notes. However i have had two pursers mention on separate occasions that i prefer traveling by myself, which i did not really take into account , but thinking at the time a bit strange they would mention something like that. This is probably on my note file, will try to find out next time.

Iím onboard and Iíve just asked nicely to see mine. Purser mumbles something nervously about not being able to see it or connect.

Presumably, then, mine says generally grumpy, and likes to be left alone.

Does every Skywards member have this Ďnotesí page on their profile? Or is it for a certain tier and above?
Forgive my ignorance, but this is the first time I have heard about it.
Surely the purser canít check the notes for every Blue member in Y....

I'm sure they can add or view notes for any Skywards member, but a Blue member in Y will have much less interaction with crew and thus less likely to have any notes. That's why I wonder if I have any, 3rd year as Gold, maybe 40-50 flights in J, about 100 in Y, 2 in F, Not Sure if I ever got enough attention to warrant a note, I usually keep to myself

Sample note for non frequent flier:

'Travels once every three years in Y. Likes to ask for extra pizza slices on ULH flights and free upgrades.'

Essentially 92% of EK pax then. Yawn.

Surely your 'notes' should at least mention your diplomatic status on FT
