About three years ago I made it in about 25. I flew ORD-SFO-SYD several times so that did it.

I imagine you will have some California residents who go over the big pond that can do it under 20.

I made 1K back in September with 39 segments. Last year I did it on 32 segments. Mostly TPAC.

I made it last month on 61 segments. I fly out of a small airport, and always connect

If I am an existing GE member, can I use the PIN/ Info to get my wife her GE membership?

I will make it next week on my 27th segment (I have 99,841 miles at this point).
A caveat for my situation - I had a few paid F domestic and J international (including EWR - India and EWR to TLV) this year.

57.5 segments this year.
101,210 EQMs.
~85,000 BIS miles on UA, 1 *A partner flight for 1,000 EQMs, some 1.5X EQMs on premium fares and a few thousand EQMs from the Legacy UA Signature Visa.

...And I'm done with paid travel this year. Well planned, I think.

Looks like I'll cross 100k PQM at about 41.5 PQS this year. A lot of short domestic segments on award tickets this year.

I hit it last week with 120 segments. Most of my travel is domestic and I have to connect everywhere I go so all of my *A flights start with a short hop on US.

68 PQS and 100738 PQM next month. I plan to fly another 2 PQS just to be sure.

First time ever as something higher than Silver.

(First time Silver last year.)
