Thrilled to have finally made 1MM on a EWR-LAX flight yesterday! The captain and co-pilot invited me to sit in the pilot's seat of the B-777 for a photo-op at EWR and the Captain gave me a copy of the Operational Flightplan for UA 751 for May 26 upon deplaning. I also got some free snacks back in Economy Plus (I'm only Gold and don't get RPU's).

Very nice. I'll see what I get when I cross later this summer. The normal seems to be no recognition.

In honor of Captain Denny's retirement, I put up some pictures of my MM flight with him -- it was a great one from DEN-LGA.

Note -- this is a link to my blog and FT rules require that I disclose this.

I finally made 1MM on May 12, ORD-DCA.

A couple of days ago, I got an email from United that said I would receive credentials in 4-6 weeks. I guess this is just a new MP card.

On the new card, it denotes that you are a million miler

Congratulations! Enjoy your new status! Credentials often come more quickly than the 4-6 weeks.

Wow! What a way to pass that milestone (MM with Captain Denny) he is such a great guy. He will be greatly missed in his sky office. Thanks for the photos! Safe Travels..

Made MM this past Sunday - and again on Tuesday ;-) While waiting to board at LAS, my name was paged and asked to approach the gate agent, not the podium. I did, fearing that I was being bumped or there was a problem with my checked bag. Instead, a big smile and genuine 'Congratulations and thank you for being a loyal United flyer - we truly appreciate your business' and was handed a printed UA card welcoming me to MM and signed by 'your LAS UA team.' It was very nice. The funny thing was on the return trip Tuesday from NYC, more or less the same thing happened - without the paging. When my bp was scanned, the gate agent thanked me and handed me another of the cards, this one signed by 'my' LGA UA team - about 8 names. A very nice touch.

Congratulations to all newly minted MM and multi-MM flyers.

Truly a wonderful personal accomplishment!

I hope you get yours. Mine never showed up, even after multiple calls about it, told it was being reordered...nothing. I did get new credentials this year for 2016 but not whatever that plaque is that MM's are supposed to get.

I crossed 1MM on TPE - SFO last Saturday. Ironically, I was #1 on the upgrade list from T-24 through boarding (there were a total of 7 passengers on the list), and no luck. I ended up in an isle seat in coach on 787-9, which wasn't too bad compared with other older aircrafts UA still uses for trans-Pac routes. No recognition by the staff - I guess perhaps at my next flight.

Probably because your Sunday flight has not been posted on Tuesday yet. Highly doubt I would have the recognition of my MM status next week as I will have three flights before reaching MM, but I will be taking all on the same day.
