We don’t fly often enough to really be considered “frequent fliers” (or is it flyers?), but when we do fly, our trips are long enough to rack up quite a bit of miles.
One of the airlines that isn’t in any kind of partnership with the programs we are already members of is Middle East Airlines, which is based here in Beirut, so I decided to sign up for their miles program. We may never earn enough miles to get anything for free, but I thought I might as well try.
This cracked me up. When you put in your info, it asks for your title. So, Mr., Mrs., Miss, etc.
Then it asks for your civil title. And this is required information. You can’t join without it. Some of my favorites:
Her Royal Highness (what do you suppose the difference is?)
My Lord (in case Lord isn’t specific enough, I guess)
The Honorable Mrs
The Sirdar (what’s a sirdar?)
It was so tempting to choose one of the more exciting civil titles, but thankfully they had the oh so boring Mrs. which I already filled in as my title. So now I am Mrs. Mrs. Nicolette H…
And, hey, anyone know what a Herr Dipl-ing is? Do I want to be one???
