Top50 customer?

At check-in at JFK for the second time I was welcomed as Top50 customer by LX-staff (Swissport). I saw that was also printed near my name on the list of F passengers, when I was escorted from the lounge to the gate.
Any idea what that means? Is it a LX speciality or even a local (LX at JFK) matter?

Every LX outstation gets a list updated frequently of the top 50 customers on that route, so that they can take extra good care of them. I imagine the JFK list to be quite competitive, so well done on making it

Nice feature by LX! Is that base on frequency of flights or revenue?

I'm guessing revenue!

And what is a customer? LX only or LH group combined on a specific sector?

Back when I was doing ZRH-JFK at least once a week I was told that I was one of the top customer for the JFK station. Besides the fact that I got to know everyone on the LX JFK team there where a few „unofficial“ benefits like getting friends and family into the JFK FCL, almost absolut upgrade priority or individual escort to immigration.

I believe the criteria was a mix of frequency and HON status.

I believe no one does more than at least once a week...

HON is not worth the "fidelity" - the F lounge staff at ZRH make a habit of being stroppy to HONs who are not long-haul in F (yeah, honest), LH and LX hava a nasty habit of using remote stands at airports outside Germany/Switzerland so you are stuck on a bus after your flight, the Xmas/birthday presents are getting pathetic and so on - not worth giving all the flights to LH/LX to be treated like a gate-crasher half the time.

Out of interest, what was(/is) your line of work? What caused you to travel that frequently?
