    Several of the other FF program numbering systems have produced curiosities. I just noticed the Delta thread today, and recall an entertaining AAdvantage one from The Other Place. The DM numbers have undergone major structural changes.

    Mine is 7A4D### while Mrs. jb, opened in 2010 has eleven numbers beginning 4006. I have no idea at all when I opened mine but it must have been fairly early in the Agony Airlines days.

    Fortunately, I don't have to remember it. I do have an all numeric AA number, being an old timer.

    And with AAdvantage all you need to do is sign in to get your signup date, for me: Member Since: Thursday, October 29, 1981

    May 1, 1981 for me. No wonder I'm Lifetime Gold, that's a lifetime ago.

    Old 7-digit US Airways #, I don't think I signed up until 1997 or so. Really the 7 digit #s have leading 0s, though, right, to correspond to the same # of digits as the old America West FlightFund #s?

    Both of us have the DM# which is the mix of numbers and letters: NLNNNLN. I can't remember if our are surviving American West numbers. Mid 90s sign up, probably.
    The kids have 11-digit ones, all numerical

    My DM number begins with 998 and is 7 digits all numbers. My old US Air number began with 720 (the 7 was added later so it really was 20). My AA number is E33 all numbers thereafter.

    I'm relatively new to Dividend Miles - 11 digits beginning with 400. On my membership card - it states when i joined - a sad "since 2009". (I've been a Mileage Plus member since the late 80s flying between Canada and Asia - and that's where most of my US flying went.)

    It's some stupid number - in the extremely rare cases where I must fly US, I credit my UA account, which I can rattle off by heart.

    I do wish someone (AA?) would kill that airline.

    Mine is the 'old configuration' consisting of numbers and letters. +1 is the same - mine opened in '96 - his opened in 2000.

    8##B0XX something like that. I joined the Piedmont Frequent Flyer program in 1987..... I was 17. :D When US came along, they put a 7 in front of my original PI number and that was that until US cutover to Sabre....or at least that's when I recall the next rendition of a US DM # came along. My AA # is 3 letters followed by 4 numbers....7 digits total.....like my US number was. I assumed it's a Sabre thing. Doesn't matter now that US is out of Sabre, and like gleff said, I think my official US # is preceeded by a bunch of zeroes to match the numbering convention of the new US and they just let me use the last 7 digits as my old #.

    My vintage DM# starts with "000"... I got it in 1987 when I joined America West "FlightFund". Interestingly, I've found I need to enter the leading zeroes in order for certain processes to work properly. Usually leading zeroes can be dropped... not in this case!

    Mine is 7 digits and a mix of numbers and letters...which is interesting because I think I joined in 2003, which seems much later than many others with this "old school" configuration.

    7 digits, alpha numerical. At one point I had 2 accounts (possibly one was an old PI account) but eventually the accounts were combined. Member since 1987.

    All numbers, beginning with 3000. It was an HP number.
    Had a US acct at some point, but the account went dormant and was probably closed.

    I'm actually thinking about asking US to give me a new number. I like my little 7 character alpha-numeric number, but United gives me hell every time I fly them...even though I input my number (both the 7 digits and even trying with leading zeros), my *A Gold status is not recognized...and I think it's got to be because of the number.
