I tolerate being called 'Sir' once, whether it is long-haul, or on a cruise. I prefer my first name once the introduction is made. If the F/A doesn't remember my name, then he can call me whatever he chooses.
On a cruise, I always introduce myself as John, and this is my wife 'Theresa'. I dislike being called 'Sir' continously because, to me, it smacks of being patronised. I don't call anyone else Sir, and I don't expect people to call me that, once they know who I am.
I have always considered myself as the same 'class' as everybody else in the world, maybe just a bit luckier, perhaps, but the same.
