    Great idea for a thread. I am planning on wearing my MP shirt every time I fly. Still waiting for my tags!

    Feel really stupid but how do you tie the luggage tags to the luggage with that rubber band they give you? Doesn't seem secure the way I do it.

    Push the plastic thing ("PT") through the hole in the tag, then loop PT back through itself. Tighten that right down to the tag. Put the other end of the PT under the bag handle, loop the whole tag back through the PT, and tighten. :)

    Everything seems easy once you know how. It's finding out how that's the hard part.

    Glad to help.

    Only time I've spotted one was because I was traveling on the FF Geek shuttle a few weeks ago from UA Family Day to the launch party. And he was seated right behind me ;)

    No, actually. But he did say he hadn't really been on FT much lately and asked if I had "moved over to MP":D
