    SkyTeam has announced that they will use the SkyTeam brand and signage throughout the alliance. This will be implemented throughout 2012.

    FC, business class, and SkyTeam ElitePlus passengers will get special lines for check in, bag drop, transfer desks, security where available, etc., priority baggage handling, and early boarding privileges on all SkyTeam carriers.

    It seems that the name DL picked for their services for elite passengers was a smart choice.

    I wish there were more substantial benefits being proposed across the alliance, although consistency would be welcome.

    Probably increases the chances of my priority tagged bag being the last one on the belt if all the ST carriers are using the same branding for this.

    In PRG, I asked for the Priority Tags on a Czech Air flight to TLV and the check in agent gave them to me, but said,"Many people don't want them because they think they are announcements to baggage handlers that there are valuable things inside."

    Wouldn't people with priority tags be the ones smart enough to know they shouldn't put valuable things in their checked baggage?

    I would think so -- but apparently some others do not.

    But once people know that they should not combine priority tags and valuables, then thieves should target bags without the priority tags" ;)

    And here I thought it meant I fly often... ;) Of course, I'm not sure the Dunkin' Donuts (my coworkers like Munchkins) or the Trader Joe's items I bring back are all that valuable.

    :)

    The Jif, ibuprofen, and Velveeta (it's for soup) I brought back on my last trip sure aren't valuable.

    Almost pestered you, but then I was going to the US. Ibuprofen can be bought in such tiny quantities here that I needed a giant bottle like you can buy anywhere in the US :)

    Why the restrictions on ibuprofen? Do Brits think it's dangerous or likely to be abused somehow?

    You can only buy blister packs of 16 or 24...something small, but still at an appropriate price for the number bought. Apparently teenagers were taking whole bottles as cries for help (usually received treatment in time to not die). I prefer to buy hundreds so I can keep some in my laptop bag, some with travel stuff, etc.

    Smaller size packages of ibuprofen, but I can get some meds that have codeine in them without a prescription. Some things are very different here. ;)
