    Any one else notice the UA Olympics lapel pin?

    I asked a CSR in DEN and she said management handed them out a few weeks ago.

    I'm not sure if they are for sale somewhere or hiding in a bowl in a UC, but it's a cool piece of swag!

    Got one at the SFO station tour a few weeks ago. Put it on my hat.

    No Doubt, I bet they are. Made in China, next to the uniform line for USA, no doubt.

    Awesome item, a very small but appropriate & fitting tribute to our athletes & the history of flying them where they need to go.

    Passing through DEN tomorrow, Tuesday. Can I ask where you obtained it? Customer Service? And I wonder If they still have another one (or two) to pass out to us PIA - DEN - SFO - OGG travelers? What a suck A - - routing.:(

    I got it internally from an employee friend of mine and it is company policy not to hand out uniform pieces to customers for obvious reasons so I don't think you'd be able to obtain one easily.

    Given that they were given out at SFO to those of us on Pat's SFO station tour, they're not totally inobtanium.
