On March 5, 1997, I signed up for the American Airlines “AAdvantage” loyalty program.
I was 18 years old and didn’t know anything about travel. Back then it was exciting to even set foot on a plane.
But over the years travel has become a huge part of my life.
I’ve been all over the world to more than 120 countries and have travelled millions of miles, including on American Airlines.
Last night, in fact, American Airlines sent me an email informing me that I had just crossed the two million mile threshold.
