    Apparently (I have not seen them yet - hoping to next week) there are AC 75th anniversary luggage tags floating around and being given out on some flights or MLLs. If you get one let us know what you think?

    Here is a video on what they look like ...

    Rumour has it they are appearing on a number of flights - I will keep an eye out for them and grab as many as I can to provide to those here who are not able to grab them... assuming I see them that is :)

  7. I have been flying weekly lately on several flights and have not seen these tags at all either on board nor in the lounge or with concierges.

    I thought I may ask at the YYZ Concierge office. Did you stop in there? I always do to say hello.

    I will in at YYZ on Monday AM to update my Nexus/Global Entry with a new passport - so will stop by the Concierge office an inquire.
     
  15. You can now do that on line and in fact I believe it is now the only way to update your PP in the system if your Nexus card is still valid.

    Thanks for the reminder 1.gif Updated with no surprises. Nice that the system now allows this. When I am at YYZ I will still drop into the Nexus office to get the GE (CBP) sticker put into my passport but now the primary activity is done. Thanks again.
     
  17. You are welcome and the parking thieves at YYZ lost another $20:D not that they worry about that.

    Well not much luck for my fellow MPers so far - sorry about that.

    Concierge office: Had never even seen them

    I did chat up an FA and get her to part with her unused one ... it is a nice tag ... so will continue to see what I can find...

    MLL Lounge: No 75th Anniversary tags - but the desk agent was kind enough to give me an AC Olympic baggage tag. So if you ask you may receive.

    Not sure where I will use these tags - too many milepoint tags on my bags already :D Plus I suspect using the 75th Anniversary tag may cause it to "disappear" :rolleyes:

    I have managed to acquire a few items of various sort ;) When I am back from my travel will group them together and see what I can offer up here - I know I will not need them all so may as well share what I can :)

    I think the word "valet" rings all the wrong bells with our corporate expense people, kind of like the letter "J"!

    I enquired about the tags at the lounge in LHR yesterday. The agent was very helpful. She said she had seen some last week on a trip to YHZ. She called the concierge to find out and reported that they didn't have any on hand, but there might be some on board. So, on board AC899 I asked the SD, who said she had seen some and had wondered about them, too, but there weren't any onboard. Then the key point came out. The SD said she thought they had been given out on one day only. So the bottom line seems to be that if you were lucky enough to fly on the one day you got the tags. Any others appear to be left-overs.

    I obtained this luggage tag from the MLL. It is not the anniversary tag, but is one of the Olympic tag series.

    If you at interested please start a conversation with me here on milepoint.

    To clarify - I am giving this away if anyone wants it :)

    I happened to find these in a MLL yesterday. I figured they would all be gone by now. I can provide the MLL name to anyone who contacts me via PM.
