Tom Stuker is looking forward to scaling back his flying a bit in 2013 and getting back to his normal routine: half a million miles sounds about right.
As one of the world’s most frequent fliers, Stuker will receive an annual mileage statement many travelers won’t see after a lifetime of globetrotting – he is the first passenger to fly 1 million miles on United Airlines in a calendar year, reaching the milestone earlier this month.
The feat comes about a year-and-a-half after the carrier threw him a party for earning 10 million miles in flight, a celebration that included naming a Boeing 747 in his honor.
How does Stuker feel after flying the equivalent of 40 trips around the world in less than 365 days?
“Tired,” he said, laughing. “I know I’ll never fly this much again in a year.”
