    I think what happened is they complained about not being greeted and maybe people sitting around them complained about that

    because they know who you are, traitor!

    They only greet top tier elites on domestic flights

    It's exactly this type of DYKWIM attitude JAL is trying to describe in the announcement but in a nice way.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you were instrumental in instigating this announcement.

    Seriously... EVERY TIME for me. The CAs greet my wife, who is JGC through me, and completely ignore me. It became a joke with us, we'd be like... wait for it, wait for it, ahhh :rolleyes:

    I believe in gaijin power if you speak Japanese. You need to flaunt that you can speak Japanese by like randomly using it to prove you`re not some English only speaker than guaranteed you will get welcome greeting. I mean you know how complicated your surname is that i`d be scary off by trying to pronounce it as a Japanese let alone if i was Japanese (no offense but it is rather long and complicated compared to Tanaka!)

    Same here, well every time we fly together in C at least, they completely ignore me. When we fly in Y I think the CA's have greeted me nearly every time.

    Hmmm... I guess I'll never know about that. I'll be in Y this July / Aug for the first time since acquiring status.
