...constantly searching to find the best travel deals and places to visit. A never-ending quest for adventure!

No, 1K is not a seat assignment.  And it's not a lottery ticket number.

It's the designation for United's 1K status - of which I have finally reached!  I wasn't quite sure if I was going to get this far ever in United's program, but with having to travel to Doha for dissertation research, I accumulated enough miles to put me over the top.

If you're curious about how the tiers work, you can find the grid here.

One of the best benefits is the higher priority for complimentary upgrades to first class, as well as Global Premier Upgrades (which can upgrade you to business class on international flights from purchased economy tickets).

Woo hoo!
