Many many thanks to all of you! Both NEWARK and LA gave me great send offs. Looking forward to celebrating at the Chicago party Jan 12 in the Polaris. United has been so kind to me. I am so appreciative of everything they have done for me!!!!!

Congrats sir! Good to see a bit of appreciation for united instead of the usual cliche stuff. Altho I fly budget airlines domestically most of the time, united has been refreshingly comfy for me when I do fly them.

I have a very busy 2 weeks ahead,but starting the 23rd when my wife is finished teaching for the year, we are traveling all summer. It will be only about 100,000 miles over 10 weeks because we are staying much longer at each destination. We start with a trip to Israel, then on to Amsterdam,back to Israel, down to Florida, to Hong Kong, Chang Mai,Phuket, Bangkok, a Mediterranean cruise ,trip to Chicago, back on another Mediterranean cruise and then Labor Day weekend in Paris to celebrate her birthday before she goes back to teaching. I am blessed with the ability to travel with her all summer, but whether we are in a country on the other side of the globe or just hanging at home, just being with her for the whole summer is heaven !! Im the luckiest man on earth! Safe travels to all. Make every day count! Be happy and bring happiness to as many people that you can.
You are living the life I want, traveling everywhere! What do you do that you can fly this much? 20M miles is just unfathomable to me; I've been working for the USG for 36 plus years and consider myself well traveled. However, if I count all the airline miles with every company I have flown I may have a couple of million miles; with UA alone, I am currently just shy of 800K! Good God, man, you must live on aircraft and fly some long routes! Super jealous! Congratulations on another milestone!

Yes, given my connection woes with United's entertainment system, that would be the absolute worst case scenario.
Congrats. Seems like just yesterday you crossed 10 million. Astonishing!

Another impressive year coming to an end! Will you hit 4 million PQM by the 31st? I may be dumb for even asking such a question!

For cruising tips there's a board similar to FT called Cruise Critic. I'm not an NCL cruiser but I can say the Go Karts look really fun.

I've cruised NCL quite a few times and have only three words to say: "Ultimate Beverage Package"!!!

ENJOY!!!
