Meet United Airlines' first 1 million-mile frequent flyer (in a single year):


It’s one for the record books.

While many United Airlines passengers have been busy the past year loudly complaining about the world’s largest carrier, intrepid traveler and businessman Tom Stuker has been busy doing something else — flying United.

I can't imagine how much time this guy actually spent in the air this year. Anybody care to guess?

Too long! 

Would this mean he would fly just about every single day?

Quote:
Cruising at 570 miles an hour, a single nonstop flight of 1 million miles would land 73 days after takeoff.

Add some more on to this to account for stops, and you're looking at 25-30% of your time on the airplane. (Last year I did about 10% of my time on board.)

Be sure to ask the question--did he actually fly 1 million miles or earn 1 million miles in some form? There is a big difference.

That was my first thought - take into account the status bonuses and booking classes, and he may only have flown a third of that distance.

This guy again? Last year he was in the news as the person with the most flights on UA. There was a party in ORD and they gave him a titanium Global Services card, which is awesome, along with a few cases of wine.

This is quite the accomplishment - I guess - but honestly, given the economic conditions of the day, you have to wonder what kind of successful business model factors in such exorbitant travel costs. I suppose that question would be better directed toward his customers who presumably underwrite his client/site visits. IIRC from the earlier United celebration's article, he's married with children - how does that work?! Seems he's away from home as much, or more than many servicemembers....

I hope the company he works for allows him to keep his earned miles as a perk of being a super fantastic road warrior, although I am unsure if could find the time, nor the desire, to get onto another aircraft to go on any decent vacation. He can donate them to make a wish, or something that that if one was feeling generous. A peace offering to your family for being gone the whole previous year.

I used to have a job that took me on a tour of Asia Pac every 3 months which meant a RTW in J x4, plus I would do an RTW in J to go home to Oz once per year, plus I would go to NY one or twice in J for a long weekend. This led, based on bonus miles, to nearly 250 000 miles per year and I was not travelling that frequently, spending most of my time in Paris. I would get 100% bonus miles, plus 5000 mile bonuses, plus a 50 000 mile bonus on reaching 2400 status credits in one year with QF. So, without being in the air that often, I made 25% of his result. Had I flown a lot more, I can see how 1 M miles is not science fiction in one year....


When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

Just to put it in perspective, that's roughly 65 LAX-SYD RTs in a year. Jesus christ. He would have to be flying almost exclusively long haul to reach 1 mil BIS - he surely didn't do it with a bunch of domestic hops.

Of course I make no coment this particular case. But only that in life things aren't always what they seem.


Early in the merger process my sUA partner told me how long long ago a then much smaller UA sold for what seemed like a pile of cash at the time *lifetime* flights deals. Various deals at various prices.

One of the most costly (I forget maybe a few 100k) got you and any buddy you wanted to bring along unlimited lifetime confirmed first class travel. Just imagine that value in a modern context!


If only someone had the vision to have purchased one for me way back when (if I was even born at the time)

I'm not sure "accomplishment", which implies a worthwhile end-goal, is the right word. I see nothing accomplished here in terms of whats important in any job: working efficiently time-wise and cost-wise for the benefit of your customer and your employer. I see alot of wasted time and money and an obsession -- an unhealthy one.

Quoting DLPMMM (Reply 13):

Exactly. If I was one of his customers, and heard about this, I would insist on the following:
1. More conference calls, and fewer face visits.
2. I will buy his airline tickets (not on Star Alliance either) and expense him.
3. Insist on a rate/price reduction on whatever he is selling me, to ensure I'm not paying for his unnecessary travel.

This story is more sad than anything.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

No way to know how far he actually flew. He would have earned 1 million miles. Miles are calculated by great-circle distance from origin to destination airport. In reality, actual air miles flown would be higher by perhaps 5%, no?
