    Well as a result of following the Mileage Runs forum I now have reservations through the end of the year that will put me over the line for 1K with UA again this year. Doing all this on leisure travel and setting a goal of 8,000 miles a month. Thank you all for your insight, help, and posting of deals (and of course to FareCompare, ITA, and KVS!! :))

    Congratulations! I still need to book a few of my trips, but I will also do it all pretty much on leisure this year, mostly due to paying attention to what a good fare is and how to use ITA properly. In fact, I think I'll only be doing 3-4 MRs.

    Congrats, its nice to set a lofty goal of 8k a month. I took the summer off to enjoy. Work starts again in Sept thru Nov on finishing the qualifications for 1K. Have most of mine done for EXP on AA, just need to wait for the various airlines to sweep and post the DEQM's between ORD and LAX/SFO.

    +1. I went crazy booking runs yesterday. Positioning has been a challenge-but actually got some luck on some fares! Looks like I'll be a 100K CO PLAT ---> UA 1K with SWUs and CR1s come 2012!

    Congrats! I hopefully will get to taste all that is 1K by end of year with the TK $805 mistake fare & Spanair LAX-MAD special. Man that second 50k is a chore!

    What's the LAX-MAD special? I have completely missed that.

    I have all but 6K miles booked for 1K this year for the first time ever (and I'll book the rest soon)! Thanks MP! (Now, it would be a real killjoy if Ben/OMAT's rumors about UA MP were true.)
