Sorry points not miles. I am qualifying with points not miles.

There was a thread on the United forum similar to this and I was surprised by those whose flying was majority MRs! Like 90% MRs

There was some discussion about that between myself and the visa folks (we were all in agreement that I need A visa, just not clear whether a tourist or transit visa), so I just got a tourist visa before I came, figured better safe then sorry. That just invited some questions from the customs folks about why I was leaving three hours after arrival.

All of my travel is on my own dime.. I earned EXP two years in a row (and hit 1MM/2MM) just doing MRs. I had QF Platinum status for several years after that so haven't needed to earn EXP since, but may go for it again next year.
