Red face Observations on the new (Y) BPs

OK, I admit, I travel so infrequently on SQ that I notice little things, but anyway, here are some trivia I noticed on the new Y BPs (I won't have a chance to get one of the premium class BPs until 2008 ) ...
  • The stub is wider than other BPs -- no big whup, just an observation
  • The *G designation is now on the same line as the KrisFlyer number (I banked with KrisFlyer on this flight); the checkin agent underlined the 'SQ*G EG' line, so I guess that helps the gate agents check that you aren't boarding ahead of the proper sequence; I flashed my EG card, though, rather than test whether the underlined BP was sufficient for priority boarding
  • There's a machine-readable print at the bottom to facilitate reading the BP -- I wonder if this helps when you have to claim missing miles
  • The Boarding Pass Privileges program features prominently (and neatly) on the reverse side. I always forget to check what I'm entitled to under that program, so it's typically wasted on me.

    I'm curious: has any SQTalker taken advantage of this (award-winning) program?

Thanks for the pic, jjpb3. Is this only for Y or for all classes?

They have it for all classes, including Suites and Excecutive Economy.

Yeah, I believe the seat number is enlarged and bolded for passengers to locate their seats easier. I kind of like that idea. Occasionally, SQ uses MI boarding passes too!

That's weird, the new BP that I have is almost similar to the old one, except for the change in font and the new 'Economy Class' logo...

Maybe mine is still the 'old' one? Oh I just noticed that my meal request is on the older boarding pass as well, but not on the new one.

Looks like you got the transitional BP, quik! . I have one of those as well.

I like the fact the e-ticket number now shows on the stub. I dislike the missing-miles-claim process particularly when I have to dig out my invoice to find the e-ticket number.

It's the sequence in which you are checked in. It's always nice to be first 001.
