I’ve been a frequent flyer on American Airlines for many years. I didn’t know it at the time, but while I was flying back to San Jose from the east coast last month, I had accumulated over a million miles on American since I joined the program. Last week I got a letter from them, depositing additional upgrades into my account, and new luggage tags and frequent flyer card with a “1 Million” logo on them. The kicker is that regardless of how many miles I fly on American ever again, I’ll always be guaranteed to be at least in their Gold program.
I had heard that some airlines had special recognition awards for their million miles club members – now I know.
