1K Club on United. That's a traveling claim to fame. Not as impressive as a Global traveler, but worthy of an airline's attention. I've dedicated ten plus years and over one-million miles to the cause. Each year, I aim to hit the 100,000 mark so that I can continue to use the special toll-free customer service number, get the occasional upgrade, better seats, and general LOVE from the airline. Being beholden to an airline goes hand and hand to other traveling must do's.
