I will start to narrow it down towards the middle to end of October. Tough call. Most important to me is sharing it with my wife and kids. I do expect to hit it by the end of year,could be as early as late November. I will be updating at 2.8,and every 50,000 afterward with possible date and flight of the 20 million.

If United were to name another aircraft in your honor--which aircraft type would you prefer now that the 747s are gone?
Thanks in advance and Safe travels,

Only 50,000 flown miles in a week... that's pretty slow, Tom.

Passed 3 million PQM last week. Today I pass 19.9 million Lifetime miles. I will be hitting the 20 million mark before Thanksgiving. In the next week to 10 days I hope to be able to guess within 2-3 days ,maybe the exact date.

My plans are constantly changing , but my best guess on hitting the 20million would be between November 3rd and November 11th. These are 2 troundtrips to Australia. I was contacted by United yesterday ,informing that they would like to do something at the Chicago Polaris on a date following. Don’t have any details. Not sure what they will do. I’m expecting something along the lines of much less 6han the 10 million. I would be thrilled with cake champagne a new jacket and my family by my side. United has always ,Day in and day out globally givin me more than I would expect and more than I deserve. I should throw them(my second family) a party for them!! I will post another update about the exact date and flight as well as any party info in about a week.
