After almost exactly 7 years to the day, I am today at:

Program to Date Miles: 1,001,605

Now I wait and sweat out the "awarding" of my account over to 1mm. Anyone else qualify today/recently and want to wait it out with me?

Best,
Lewis

The system crawls for MMer qualifications once a week or so. You should get the "congratulations on your AAdvantage achievement" email within a week, and the new elite card and luggage tags within 4-6 weeks.

Woo Hoo 1mm

OK, so it took 20 years (of which 10 with TWA).

"and there was much rejoicing"

Thank you for your response... I am getting a little worried because it has been about 10 days and no 8 upgrades, etc...

Best,

Finally made it to 1MM/Lifetime Gold after 10 years. Would have taken longer without FT. Already begun the countdown to 2MM

Sorry to hear about the delay. Assuming your flights have posted and your Program-to-Date miles reflects 1MM, why not call AAdvantage Customer Service and ask what's going on?

Made 2 million last week

For whomever said the second mill came faster than the first, it was true in my case. I made 1 million just four years ago; now, I'm in my second year of EXP and made 2 million miles (and counting--two more trips to go this year).

Cheers,

For your reference, I met the threshold on Wed 11/28 and received the upgrades and a congratulatory email Wed 12/5. The short wait might have just been luck since I was near the end of the month when maybe their system does some accounting.

WooHoo! Just made 1,000,000 miles. I've been an AAdvantage member since 1982, but most of my miles have been earned in the last 6 years.

I may recall someone posted the 1M processes irregularly and can take longer some times than regular status postings. Or, as indicated above, sometimes not. But it does happen; congratulations.

In any case, congrats to all, and mjpflyer, you are truly, irredeemably hooked!
