  1. @ Gary — Glad to see Chase going after thieves. The IRS should do the same to the former President.

  2. Gary, that picture you’re showing of UA is a cheap shot and you know it. Even for your own standards!! You are very aware of it too, c’mon man!! Totally misleading.

  3. The two United stories involve a great flight attendant helping a passenger with a baby and nice recognition for a frequent flyer but the photo is of a tail tip? For anyone not familiar with that story they’ll just want to know more about what happened there versus what happened in the two linked stories.

  4. The Captain came back and thanked me for my loyalty and recognized my hitting one million miles with United. Nothing when I hit two million. Since retired, I doubt I make the three million as I am sitting near 2.5 million now. No need to worry about the next level.

  5. @Gene
    Hey Gene, I thought you were a big lib. Now people who can’t pay their credit cards are thieves? Do you want to bring back debtors prisons? Some lib you are. I was involved defending people against Chase in those years, incl. victims of identify theft. Chase had the worse records in the whole rotten business.Then one day all the.in-house collection lawyers were gone.
    btw, Kudos to Gary for publishing this item, against his interest.

  6. Gene as usual had to bring in his warped political slant involving the former POTUS. The libs simply can’t get over they’re infatuation with the DT presidency mainly because they’re own hero, “sleepy joe “is doing such a poor job.

  7. In 2010, I got stuck in Amsterdam due to the volcano in Iceland. I finally made a flight from Frankfurt to DC and crossed over the 2 million mile mark. All I got was “we were stuck in Europe too, when I mention I finally made it to 2 million miles ” Thanks UAL
