Congratulations! I still haven't received my Welcome to Gold Pack. I can live without a card for now as there's a virtual one on the App and for obvious reasons I won't be going overseas any time soon.
But does anybody know if those baggage tags are needed to get priority baggage treatment?
Re : Welcome pack - oh yes, I completely forgot about it. I have changed my address in the Personal Details section - hopefully a welcome pack will arrive soon
re : baggage tags & priority treatment - My answers : Yes & Not Sure.
Yes, because I think the baggage tags will have a barcode that's private to you and will identify the traveller and their FF tier. That being said, I can't REALLY say that you'd need the tag to get preferential treatment.
Not Sure because - even if you have the tag, you can always ask for a baggage tag printed for check-in luggage. This will also have a barcode that will identify the pax and their tier.
Also, from my experience with QF, the word "PRIORITY" will be printed. So the baggage handlers know to load your bag last so that it comes out first in the carousal. VA might be doing something similar to printing "PRIORITY" or something to that effect to visually alert the baggage handlers.
