    'CIP' - Printed on QF Boarding Pass - Meaning ??

    Hi all,

    For some time now when i pick up a BP with QF it has printed in the service information 'CIP' - does anyone else get these abbreviations and understand what they mean?

    I always forget to ask them, as it is always a mad rush with me.

    Who gets what on theirs?

    cheers SPRUCE



    Cheers

    Computer Ink Problem. Were there any parts of the printout on the boarding pass missing?

    (Actually, yep - Commercially Important Person/Passenger). A tag that can be added by your travel arranger for certain people. Supposedly gives you some preference when things go wrong. There are a few threads on the topic here, I'll try and track them down.

    How do you get Star Alliance PLAT? Which program is that?

    CIP is Commercially Important Passenger(Person)

    Usually means your a friend or relo of a staff/travel agent/senoir management.

    I think it's Starwood Frequent Guest platinum, rather than *A platinum.

    That would be the Intercontinental Hotels Group program (Priority Club), with the Plat reference relating to the subsequently identified Royal Ambassador recognition level as shown on the one membership card.

    I read it as Star Alliance PLAT as well. Otherwise it leaves Star Alliance sitting out there on its own.
    Something big is about to happen.
