I just got a happy 20th anniversary banner on my Mileage Plus page. How long have you been a member? According to Wikipedia, FF programs have been in existence since 1979.

How long have you been a FF member?

I noticed that my MP enrollment date is annotated in my account summary on the iPhone app.

Same here, EA ET. They initially used our Social Security Number as an ID, then switched to home telephone number!

On UA, ~1983 with 00070xxxxxx.
