Anybody else want to cross a milestone at the same time. ( donít want to steal anyoneís thunder though)
I actually looked at it as we were combining our thunder. But our milestones were close at 4 & 5 MM.

Make it memorable like ORD-CLE on a CRJ200!

That's actually a great idea. You've been on UA's greatest flights, on its most memorable aircraft, enjoying the best UA has to offer. Why not cross the finish line as a testament to all of us that have to fly that plane occasionally. I'd like to see how UA spins your experience on that flight. Sort of like switching out your Tour de France-quality cycle for a tricycle for the last few meters.

Tom - we've known each other a long time -- and I cant think of a better place to cross the goal than Narita -- your favorite destination by far.... We've spent so many flights together lol - never seen you happier than Tokyo!

Looks like Tokyo is reopening to tourists at just the right time for this to be possible!

And agree with this suggestion. You can never go wrong with Tokyo.

I don't think he's crossing the finish line . . . it's just another lap around the race course.

that is probably where Iíll cross my first million this year. But maybe it should be DEN-FNL to complete the CoUniHound!
