    Yikes. If my math is right (336-ish days), he has flown nearly 3000 miles each day!

    Quite frankly, I do NOT envy Tom... at all!

    This is just poor planning... If Tom learned to combine meetings by continent he could cut back these miles ;)

    Envy? Think of how many Smisek videos he has endured.

    I wonder if they counted his SMD4 charter flight miles! :D

    BTW, I only spoke to him for a few minutes at the United Club, but he is a super friendly guy!

    Too bad UA does not do this for all their passengers.

    "It has been a phenomenal year flying with United," said Stuker. "Everyone at the airline, from the customer service agents to the flight attendants to the ramp workers, has made my travels feel effortless.

    Probably has a bed tucked away in thr ORD united club and that is considered his home. And one in the EWR club is his summer home.

    It is truly a feat for someone to have flown 1 million miles in a year.

    crazy number if it's all Butt In Seat miles. If it's EQM, then it maybe a bit easier with higher fare...

    I think we are all overlooking the fact that he has little time to spend with family while flying all those miles. I love vacations, miles, status etc, but they don't even come close to spending quality time with those you love. We all need a happy balance in life if it is to have any real meaning.

    I remember reading an interview where he said he brings a lot of his family with him on trips. I think his son got in the same line of work, and his wife occasionally tags along. It's the only way I'd be able to travel that much.
