How Many Miles Do You Have?

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.

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.

As for me: I currently have a balance of about 60,000 miles with DL. Yeeha!

I don't travel enough anymore to collect FFMs plus I bounce around with the airlines, so its just not worth it.

Having said that, I still have about 15000 with KL/NW, 15000 with LH and 10000 with BA.

When you log into your OnePass account at CO, it gives you your lifetime flight miles. These are actual miles flown, and do not include any promotions or non-airline activity.

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.).

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.  eyepopping

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.
