So I was talking with my dad about his airline miles and found out he has over 5 million now, of which 2 million are based on actual flight miles (versus earned points from partner promotions and credit card purchases). It seems like a lot but he's been a "Miler" since the program started.
So I got to wondering what others here might have and who has the most. I know this has been asked before but I don't see it too recently so I figured might as well ask again!
I am a relative nobody in Miles-land with only around 100k.
So wha'cha got?

I have about 155k miles on Delta; currently I'm a Platinum Medallion on DL and use the SkyMiles credit card for pretty much everything I buy.
Next year should be quite nice - should earn 200k miles minimum, based on flying probably 80k miles on DL (plus 100% bonus miles for being PM) and then between Credit Card, SkyMiles dining (earn 10 miles/dollar there due to bonuses, etc.) I should have no problem earning 200k miles.

I have about 1.5 million, my highest balance is with CO (around 500K) and the lowest is with DL (around 100K). The airline that I use the most for FFM redemption is US, not because it's my first choice, but because it is the easiest for me to redeem/ find availability.

18,522 Skymiles, of which about 4500 miles were from non-flight activities (rental car, buying miles, website promos, first class bonus). All them earned in the last 19 months, as I pretty much fly twice a year. One of these days I'll eventually have enough miles to get an award ticket (I'll probably never get to use them for an upgrade because of the route I fly combined with the booking class.).

Quoting Flexo (Reply 3): Is this all the miles you've earned in your life or what you currently have as a mile balance?
Just curious because it sounds like your balance and I was wondering why you wouldn't redeem them.
It is the account balance not lifetime miles. I have not redeemed them for a very simple reason, I have not wanted to redeem them.

US - 1060 (Just redeemed an award ticket to the Carribean so, life: 31060)
NW - 23053 (Trying to cap it off, most in my family)
DL-2067 (Probably expired by now. Really mad that my dad signed me up for it and didnt put it to my WorldPerks )
I'll hopefully be there by the time I'm 30 - currently at 185k MM miles and it's looking like I'll do 125k MQMs on Delta next year, which would put me at around 300k when I turn 24 (and having earned about 275k of those miles after my 20th birthday).
Lifetime DL miles earned for me is 275k miles. Sadly, I earn about 50k more miles in the next month (trips to LHR, LAS, BUR and IAH...)

Million Miler on NW Worldperks. I've had a million points balance in my account at times but redeem awards from time to time. My acrued points are over 3mil. Of course, I also have points with AA, DL, US, UA, and WN too.
