This may be the first 787-9 that NZ took delivery of on Monday. Maybe they are flying them around the US a bit to train crews. I believe it's scheduled to depart for NZ next week.

The simple answer is to *fly* enough to earn 100000 EQM miles every year. Lifetime miles don't figure into the annual 1K qualification, unless you have achieved 3 MM milestone.
