The world’s most frequent flyer

Tom Stuker has taken the term ‘frequent flyer’ to completely new heights this year, logging just over 1.000.000 miles in 2012 all on United, all in first class. Generally, he has travelled over 10 million miles. The 59-year-old Chicago native and New Jersey resident says he’s flown a total of 13 million miles, much of that in his capacity as an independent consultant and sales trainer for automobile dealerships around the world.
