Tom Stuker, 69, considers buying the pass the “best investment” of his life. In 2019, Tom became the first passenger to fly 20 million miles (3.2 crores) with United Airlines after having completed 373 flights. Without the pass, the flights he took in all these years would have saved him $2.44 million (Rs 20 crore). Tom once told The Washington Post that he always pretends to meet the first flight attendant he meets on board the plane. Apparently this person would usually be the main attendant and thus help you get some VIP treatment. He explained, “I always say, ‘I remember you! You did us a great service last time. I wanted to thank you again.'” When it comes to luggage, Tom has one rule: no checking bags. Tom only flies hand luggage, which he believes saves time. He too has had some disturbing experiences, namely four heart attacks on the flight. He said: “I met a couple of them too. They died right in their seats. The last guy was in business with me, from Chicago to Narita (Tokyo). They covered him with a blanket and put his seatbelt on him. What else What could they do? I guarantee someone in the business was thinking, ‘Hey, if I’m not going to eat your fudge sundae, would you mind…?'” Tom further said, “At the end of the day, it’s not about the places I go, it’s about the people I meet.”
