For many, this would be a nightmare. But not this man.
Tom Stuker, a Chicago-area man, was the first United Airlines customer to fly 1 million miles on the airline in a calendar year, the carrier said today.
Stuker, an automotive sales consultant who has a home in Bloomingdale near O'Hare airport, is United's most frequent flier and on Dec. 6 flew his millionth mile of 2012 aboard a United flight between London and Chicago.
"It has been a phenomenal year flying with United," Stuker said in a United news release. "Everyone at the airline, from the customer service agents to the flight attendants to the ramp workers, has made my travels feel effortless."
Of course, his experience isn't the same as most coach-class travelers; he qualifies for all the best upgrades and amenities at United.
