This happens to me all the time. Finally I remembered to do it at Frankfurt and asked for document check at the gate. They told me I didn't need it which seemed unlikely. When I went to board they...

AC FA recently had me remove my earbuds for takeoff. Seems overly cautious to me, but at least it was consistent.

Are you sure they're not reused? I noticed on one (EK) that it had a little breakaway tab so you could tell when it had been opened. It made me hope they gather up the unopened ones for the next...

FYI an update. You don't get silver until you've flown the 10K PQM. So all it does is accelerate reaching silver by 15K. Which is better than nothing, but given you can only do a match once every 5...

Actually I called and was told current customers can do a challenge but only for silver. 10K PQM in 90 days. Hilariously they tried to sell me silver outright for $1300, because I am such a good...
