ua1flyer's 10MM Lifetime BIS Flight and Celebration - 9 July 2011 [UA 942 LAX-ORD]

IT'S OFFICIAL. The 10 million mile flight will be Saturday July 9th UA 942 LAX to ORD. United will have a celebration planned at ORD and will allow me to invite about 20 FTers to the party. For those local they will provide gate passes. It will be in the terminal somewhere. For those interested United has requested names and email addresses of those coming. If you would like an official invite please contact me at ua1flyer[at]yahoo[dot]com. Should be fun....I know " I "will be celebrating!

Sorry...too excited. The flight leaves LAX at 11am and arrives in ORD at 5:01 pm

This would be a fantastic event to meet FTers. Unfortunately, if it can be viewed that way, I'll be landing in PVG that day.

Enjoy the festivities and the incredible milestone.

Will you be there? I think the celebration starts not much after we land.

Yes I'm there on 7/9 but it's in the morning as I'm inbound on the red-eye from SFO and turning back a little over 2 hours later-that's why I'm now hoping for an oversell on my flight so I can VDB until after you arrive

As I will be in Asia during this time and unable to join everyone in the celebration, let me add my congratulations now.

My mind has trouble wrapping around the idea of so many hours in the air.

Wow.

ua1flyer, congratulations on reaching your milestone and I am happy to hear UA will be paying you the proper honors. I'll create a new thread specific to this mini-Do to make sure those in the Community are aware of it. I hope FTers will be able to join you (and I will be there in spirit).

Regards,

Sounds like it would be a lot of fun. Will be passing though ORD a day too early however. I think the thread should be changed to point out that this is BIS miles not EQM too. All the more impressive -- here's to the next 10M!?
