So you reckon you spend a lot of time flying? Probably not nearly as much as Tom Stuker, a Chicago-based automotive sales consultant who this year clocked up a whopping one million miles travelling on United Airlines alone.
Stuker racked up his millionth mile on December 6 onboard United flight 949 between London and Chicago, estimated to be his 400th United flight this year.
(Yes, the maths behind that boggles us – it means he's averaging more than one flight per day including weekends. We're sure that even the most avid frequent flyer could think of better things to do with their time!)
Stuker is believed to be the first commercial traveller to reach a million miles in a single year, and has flown more than 11 million miles flown on United.
To put those Ryan Bingham-esque numbers in perspective, Stuker's million mile tally is equivalent to two return trips to the Moon, while his overall 11 million mile total would see him get about a third of way to Mars.
