Hola!

Does your FF program greet you for Xmas?

IB plus does it its way:

I got a Xmas card through the mail from Lufthansa, came with a 20% off a flight coupon too  thumbsup 

My other FF accounts still have mailing addresses in the UK but in my experience I don't think I'll get anything from BA.

I liked that. Crafty idea usign customs/immigration stamps.

My wife and I both got one from NWA. It was just an email one. It wished us a happy holidays and hoped "to see us on flights in 2007". Well they will and if they really want to see us more they add service from NGO to places like...MSP or...SEA.

Last year we gave greeting cards to every crew member on our flight to the US. They gave us a bottle of champagne and extra snacks. The Purser and almost every other crew member came past our seat and thanked us individually. When we deplaned the pilot had the greeting card in his pocket and thanked us.

Mailed as in printed on paper? Wow! That is much better than a crass email.

Sure would be nice if NW sent a card with a shiny A330 or 744 on side and a greeting on the inside. Not just something that says hope you will fly with us soon and make sure you keep yourself updated on your Worldperks account. DL has human touch even though it costs much more than a mass email. I think spending a little money to show real respect and appreciation is better than telling IT and PR to send a mass email. Sounds like DL's took thinking, NW's took a memo and a scrap of paper.

Pretty pathetic, we sent out 10.000.000 fly-for-free vouchers*.

*excl. taxes and fees which may vary but are pure rip-off anyway!

Delta sends out Christmas cards to all its Medallion members each year. Nice little touch by the airline to do this.

I got a nice little card from NW suggesting that I take a break and thanking me for my me for my business in 2006. "signed" by the director of Worldperks

I'm a WorldPerks Silver member, for what it's worth.

I think yours might still be on the way to your mail box. We know that some of the first NW Xmas cards were received on Dec 13. See http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=635465 I got mine today. I guess it takes some time to send them out and deliver them.

It seems KLM send a digital card yesterday to all her Frequent Flyers and other customers known by e-mail address. So I got two, one from KLM Netherlands and one from KLM Nigeria!

BTW, anybody can check their season'sgreetings:

And it starts with "2006 was a very successful year for us", now that's a nice thought I want to keep in mind for Christmas...  sarcastic

Continental Airlines sent a nice electronic card to me, can't remember how long I've been receiving them but seems to be quite a while now.

Happy Holidays to all!

Nothing from Aer Lingus and to the best of my recollection they never have sent anything, either by post or email, for Christmas to FF members.

I got the DL card (Gold) and the e-mail from NW.

I also got an "anniversary card" from WN reminding me that it had been one year since joining Rapid Rewards. I thought that was a nice little touch.

Hola!

I just forgot to add that Iberia is adding 100 bonus points to all silver customers plus 200 extra if you buy a ticket before Jan.10th...

Not bad.

Salut!

They probably only mail cards out to elite level FF'ers. I got mine from NW today - the tricky bastards even put it in a real envelope with a REAL STAMP (no, it wasn't stamped by a meter!), making me think I had recieved a christmas card from a friend!

Very nice, but why does IB use the Radetzky March (a march composed by Johann Strauss Sr. in 1848. It was dedicated to Austrian Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky von Radetz, and became quite a popular march among soldiers) for a e-Card?

Oh, and yes, I got a nice card from NW today too.

I have no idea; IMO, just for the same reason they play it every year at Vienna's New Year Concert.

Bon Nadal!
