LX to hand out chocolate according to status as of April 1st, 2011

News: New status recognition on LX as of April 1st, 2011 - will LH follow soon?


LX will hand out chocolate according to status to passengers as of April 1st, 2011.

HON Cirlce members will receive the black chocolate bars by the purser after boarding. If there are less than 10 *G customers on board then these passengers will also individually receive their *G chocolate by the crew.
All other passengers will receive the chocolate (in red wrapping) as usual.

Here is a picture of the new chocolate bars (thanks Lohausen / VFT for posting! )



Will LH follow soon ?

So no distinction between SEN, SEN+ and BD *G or US *G?

Those chocolates say points.com on them and have directions to the FCL/FCT on the back.

Hi everyone

Thanks a lot for the good laugh!
Does anyone of you know Lohausen, who originally posted it on VFT? If yes, could you send me his email address to [email protected]?

Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend,
Christian
