I was reading it onboard today as well. But I missed that detail. I was only focusing on the routemap where to go next until hypnotitized and fell asleep.

Let's get some serious "German tank problem" analysis going to establish the sign-up rate...

Heh, while on games, I love Bayesian probability, there is nothing wrong in believing in it!
If throwing dice and getting 9/10 times number 6, I believe the probability of getting number six is higher that 1/6!

Later, my spouse got 692xxx, oldest son the same 692xxx, later the kids have been receiving 696xxx (could be also Finnair Junior series?).
Another 62xxx here!

What you are describing is actually a frequentist view. Bayesians would likely have a high-kurtosis prior for theta (assuming bernoulli trials) centered around 1/6. The posterior would thus still be around 1/6 despite the likelihood of the observations.

Maybe, heck, I dont care if I made wrong note but alright this is anyway like airline stuff. Easy to guess right. Example, probability of my evening ATR to take me home ON TIME is easy to predict.

Mine starts at 642 - I'm not sure if it's the number I got as a junior member, or if this was later as an adult. I'm a bit worried that I have no memory when I signed up as I should not be approaching Alzheimers age yet!

639 start, 9 digits. No idea when I signed, but didnt you have to be 18 back in the days? I dont remember Junior existing when I was younger.

I have a vague recollection of having first had the junior card and then an adult one. But I wasn't too aware of what the card was for, and didn't really care for a long time even as an adult.

Edit: I found an MA thesis which describes an earlier invite only -programme launched in 1978! Anyone admit they were a member then? P 14 https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/fb9...073853c2b0.pdf


Also, the junior card was at least around in 2001 (via google books: International Cases in Tourism Management, Horner & Swarbrooke, 2004, p 223)
