Ok, 104,000+ preferred miles and 20 segments. 18 segs if you don't count the reroute on AC to LHR via YYZ instead of the CLT-PHL-LGW that I had booked. That works out to 5,200+ per segment. That would be 3 transatlantic flights and I got out a little. </font>

Not bad. Anyhow, as of Dec. 31 (at 10:00 pm PST), it will be 102,250 status miles on 21 segments - or 4869 per segment.

God bless UA transpac service.

Yes! My UA IAD-ORD-NRT-ICN & HKG-SFO-IAD flights were a BIG help with US requalification this year. And all in C class too due to the generousity of a fellow FT'er.

Yah. I'm off international for a couple months. Thank God. But, it looks like I'll have one international hop each month from April to June or July. At that clip, I will probably re-earn the CP status quickly. Once I cross the 100K point, I'll probably switch the earning to UA to see if I can hit 1K and have the status on both carriers.

Ha, ha, ha.

Year to Date Preferred Miles: 15,500
Year to Date Preferred Segments: 31

Miles per segment: 500

18 shuttle, 9 RJ, and a whopping 4 mainline. I'd actually prefer the old upgrade system for the extra miles from converted upgrades.

Before US canned the Beechcraft from PHL, I used to connect to RDG weekly. Now that's painful.

Seeing that RDG-PHL is about 50 miles my number includes LOTS of 500 minimums. I figured it to be about 30 segments on that flight......that brings me down to 491/Segment!!!! HOW PAINFUL!!!
</font>
OK, so I'm not the only one pissed off about losing PHL-RDG service!

"Short" is an underestimate for those flights. But hey, they raked in a lot of 500 mile segs for me.

Before FT I qualified for CP on segments. No more, far too much pain. This year:

US
101,542 miles
58 segments
1750 miles per segment

UA
104,015 miles
29 segments (ahahahahah)
3587 miles per segment

AA
51,201 miles
32 segments
1600 miles per segment

The UA and US were helped a lot by bonuses. I sort of wish I didnt have a few shuttle flights in there on UA when they were giving miles on both UA and US for them. I think had I not had that I would have gone over 4K per segment on UA including bonuses.

There is a shuttle bus from RDG-PHL-RDG leaving at regular times. I took it and found it to be much more reliable and comfortable than a Beechcraft!

The shuttle is indeed nice. I've taken it a couple of times to get to PHL, sometimes for flights and sometimes for easy transport to PHL.

The only problem with the Beech was that it was fairly older.

Ever remember them flying anything other than a B1900 into RDG? For some reason in my pre-flying days I remember something bigger like a Dash8 or D328.

OK Here are my totals for 2003

Preferred Miles: 134,325
Preferred Segments: 140

Most of which were short east coast hops. No international this year, except for a quick trip to AUA (unfortunately on business).

Happy New Year to all, and thanks US for a fine job!

I think I have a very good chance to be the new Prince. I ended yesterday with 104 segments and 59,605 preferred miles for a 573 miles/segment ratio. I think that transcon skewed the result.

Also 60 segments on AA with an average of 569. I am surprised that AA was so short because I had a few trips to ORD and STL.

Starting with US on New Years with 2 segments.

Nominations begin January 1, 2006

Do we include just US and HP post merger or will all flights on either airline count?

As I was a UA->HP->US convert this year, I totaled all segments from the 3 airlines to come up with this total. I had 90,922 EQM in 85 segments for a score of 1069.7

I did have another 12,443 over 16 segments = 777.7 score split between Scenic Airlines, AA, DL & NW.

I am done for the year and will start 6:40am Jan 1 LAS-SFO-OGG on UA freshly hung over from New Years Eve on the Las Vegas Strip!

Actual - 34,087 in 37 segments

Random bunches of flights on UA, CO, AA, DL, YX - probably another 50 segements/40K.
