(Thanks to the View from the Wing blog for the heads up on this):
Randy Petersen, InsideFlyer’s frequent flyer guru, reports on some crazy stats about Delta SkyMiles:
The largest current mileage balance is 21,846,145 miles. Someone has 21 million miles. Really.
In 2005, someone flew 61 transoceanic segments.
In 2005, someone flew 519,676 miles.
And the youngest elite member is 2 months old.
There ya go. If you thought you flew a lot, you got nothing.
