Million Miler Seat Mates At OWMD + AA Admirals Club Pass Give Away

I just returned from the AA MegaDo where I had the opportunity to learn about AA from some veteran million milers (MM). It was amazing how many MMs were on this plane. In fact, I was surrounded by people with millions and millions of miles. It was great to speak with my seat mates and learn what they like about the AA program.

Million Miler 3 F

Mr 3F has 8.7 million life time miles on AA. This MM has been top tier status on AA since 1989 and is still running strong.

Million Miler 3 E

When Mrs 3E is not diagnosing a patient’s ailment she is flying all over the world. This MM has a little over 2.5 million miles and counting. Hat tip to 3 E for donating the AA admirals club pass for this give away.

Million Miler 2 F

Mr 2F was my seatmate who helped me write the Steak and Drinks at 35k post where we are giving away another AA Admirals club pass (hat tip to 2F for donating the pass to the winner). This MM loves car racing, when he’s not at a race, he’s racing to the top of the AA frequent flier food chain with 2.7 million lifetime miles.

Million Miler 1 E

Mr 1E flew 163 segments for a total of 313,000 miles in just one year alone. This MM has been top tier status for the last 12-14 years and will have 50,000 AA status miles by the end of January. When he’s not earning AA lifetime miles he is helping the frequent flyer community track their miles with Award Wallet.

Million Miler 1 F

Mrs 2E’s life is a trip. This MM flew 220,000 miles last year and loves the LAX to NRT route. She is addicted to travel and does not plan to recover from it because it is the best form of education she has ever received.

2 E

I’m working my way to MM status with an almost respectable 440,000 life time AA miles over the past 10 years. I can recall AA flights to some great destinations like Buenos Aires, Las Vegas, Turks & Caicos, New York, DC, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Colorado, Nassau, San Juan, and I will never forget the trip to Anguilla

These were just the MegaDo MM’s sitting next to me. I wonder how many miles were on this flight, which would be easy to know if you are using Award Wallet.
