"Lifetime Flight Miles" rankings at the end of 2012 (Now with poll options!)

Think of this as the door jam where your parents would measure you and your siblings height as you grew over the years. It will change and grow each year. Where will it rank amongst your peers? I was going to bundle these together, but they each deserve their own thread. This will see where you rank amongst FTer's for lifetime flight miles. I'll do the same as the yearly PQM rankings and post it by ranking and alphabetically.

We all know that UA did an adjustment last year to include EQM as a one time adjustment when CO and UA merged. This skewed the # from ONLY BIS miles to then include all EQM activity. It upset many of the BIS purists in the process and even moreso when the million miler benefits were changed.

This is what UA says on their website about lifetime flight miles:

"Starting January 1, 2012, flight miles on United and Copa accrue toward Million Miler status.

Because the 2011 MileagePlus and OnePass programs tracked lifetime activity differently, we re-calculated lifetime miles for 2011 MileagePlus members and then combined all members’ lifetime balances in both programs. This combined balance is your starting 2012 MileagePlus lifetime miles balance, which we then carried forward into the 2012 Million Miler program. The 2012 starting balance incorporates all lifetime elite qualifying activity earned in either OnePass or MileagePlus through December 31, 2011."

For more info read on: https://www.united.com/web/en-US/con.../lifetime.aspx

Lets set all the angst aside and see where you rank. Simply log into your UA account and report whatever number is next to "Lifetime Flight Miles." Let's see the HUGE numbers from some of you, and of course Tom with whatever ridiculously high number he has.

Moderator Edit: Poll options are now added and one can review the results of each category by clicking on the number of votes for it.

Posters should also note that posting exact lifetime flight mileage on a set date might allow UA to identify the corresponding account. As such, it may behoove posters wishing to ensure the privacy to respond with a more generic number (e.g. 1,53x,xxx or ~1.53m) rather than the exact amount.

[This is strange. It won't allow me to have an upper-case 'P' after the 1. Three times I have tried editing it, and it keeps changing back to lower-case.]

[Tried it a fourth time, and this time it stuck. Go figure!]

[mahasamatman graciously explained in a PM why this happened: the software will not allow posts with all caps (in this case, one solitary cap and the rest numerals) to avoid screaming.]

2,730,000 (with ~10K to go in '12)
GS for '12, expecting '13 too
1K for life, by virtue of ex-CO Infinite Elite Plat (earned before my 8 years as ex-UA 1K)
