1MM Flight Today

Went over the 1MM mark today. Thanks to everyone here that has been helpful in sharing their knowledge. Also a big thanks to Delta and the great Delta employees.

On arrival I was met by the Delta Porsche service and they gave me a little notepad with RFID protected pockets and a thank you card. They also gave me their business card and told me if I ever needed a Porsche pickup just give them a call.

Very cool, congrats! Will be interesting to see if they do anything for 2mm, I’ll hit that on last flight of the year on dec 26.

Congrats on 1MM, the Porsche ride, and the cool swag. Was this at your "home" airport LAS? If so, I didn't know there was Porsche service away from hubs.

Did you notify them in any way that you were hitting 1MM? Nada for me at 1MM.

About 5 years. I wish I had discovered Delta and frequent flyer status earlier in my life. Back then I flew whatever. Somehow I managed to pick NW or Delta for a bunch of flights anyway so when they merged, I got a little boost from that. Then I flew SW for 6 years for some unknown reason. I've had a few double diamond years so that helped.

No, it was on my outbound connection at DTW.

I thought I would tweet them next time I flew but then it slipped my mind. So they picked me.

Lucky you! Congrats. This is something new or you must be special . I passed the 1 MM and 2 MM thresholds without special personal attention, but I could pick out a gift (carry-on luggage).

Wow, OP must be a 360. I literally got a middle seat for my 1MM flight.

I got a porsche ride a couple months ago but that was just luck. Nothing else except a letter from the local station chief a month later.

Seriously, I was thinking the same thing. Mine was 36B on a 739. Was a truly memorable experience

Hold the presses! Looks Ike my connection didn’t post yet. So still not a 1MM. Should I try for an early flight and see if I get picked again?
