Dr. Cheong Choong Kong (the last SQ CEO) was on my flight MXP-SIN.

Greg Grundberg from Heroes was flying on SQ 38 in Raffles last August. Seated a row in front of me, he was extra cool, pulling all sorts of jokes around the cabin and joking around with the FAs too.

He & his wife were travelling in First Class and I saw an LPP tag on his cabin bag. Not sure about the free travel entitlement though.

I do know a former top exec at SQ. He's definitely LPP but doesn't get free travel. Then again if any well respected former exec ever ended up with a Y ticket, I'm certain that any station manager or IFS would ensure they were upgraded to the best available seat.

I had seen Philip Chen (former CX CEO) sitting in CX A330 Y class from HKG to PEK...! & without priority boarding / disembark treatment as well...!

I knew different carrier had different benefits for their employees but by far I still think China Airlines still the most generous, their employee benefits can even extend to their relatives...not just the spouses, mom & dad, sons & daughters, etc....

Alright... This is not SQ related. Not too sure if it is celebrity related too depending on which part of the world you are from.

Disembarking from Business Class cabin on a UA 747-400 SIN-HKG, we had to walk into the First Class cabin to wait for the doors to be opened and voila... Christy Chung was in her seat. She is VERY SMALL SIZED in person.

Boarding an MAS 737-400 in SIN bound for KUL, I settled into Seat 1A and lo and behold, Malaysian singer M. Nasir walks past with his family and into the YCL cabin.

Is there a way to distinguish between TPP and LPP members by the luggage tag? If so, how? I'm curious... I thought they look the same...

Just that it says "Lifetime" below the "Solitaire" wordings.

Lucky him to have "Lifetime."
My card only says "LIFE MEMBER" below the word "SOLITAIRE."

His should be the same as yours - "Life Member".
Blame it on my bad eyesight.

Since SQ doesn't love me anymore , so perhaps I got the old style card, while the new one shows "Lifetime."
