I'm at 3.96MM - nearing lifetime GS but never qualifying for it otherwise.

My first 10 years of flying I was at 2MM. It has taken nearly 25 years to get the rest for a total of 35

Frequent flyer miles, so includes bonus & credit card, etc?
Or real flown miles?
Many threads on this topic over the years

I think we can assume lifetime miles as calculated and reported by UA on our account summaries

1.95MM in 26 years and 358 days with UA thus far. North of 1MM on other star alliance airlines, and about 500K on oneworld and a bit of skyteam. Another 150K all over the place before my family or I knew there was such a thing as an airline loyalty program. Wish I could add those all together and get lifetime GS soon!

I have been preaching about flying exclusively on one airlines if one can resist the temptation to gain status on multiple airlines. I have over 1 MM on other *A carriers and have earned status on AA and DL over the years, but I also would rather consolidated them now looking back.

I'm at 1.08M, but the .08 has been the last 5 years or so, I really haven't been earning... as for getting status on other airlines, J is cheap enough if I'm going out of my way, its no problem.

1.285M lifetime in 20 years. Most of my heavy flying has only been in last 11.

Had done almost 400K on Delta in 90s.

1.65MM in ~23 years

(Didn't really keep track of programs or airlines for the first few years, but was EWR based for most of the time, so ended up with a lot of CO flights early on. Before the merger, most accrued miles (>90%) happened to be on CO and UA, so the merger worked out pretty good!)
