FTers win 24 million United miles
The results of United’s 2008 elite choice team competition are coming in and it appears that about 100 FTers have between them won 24 million United miles (plus a few other goodies) by flying lots. With only 50 teams winning 1 million United miles each that is a fantastic collective achievement. The 24 teams of 4 people all earned more than 350,000 additional United Mileage Plus EQMs in 2008 compared with 2007 (added over the team), with one team the Grateful Ted amassing 2.2 million EQM in 2008. Congratulations to all the winners. The 50-odd FT teams taking part reported over 28 million EQMs in 2008, an increase of over 17 million on their 2007 figures.
