English term or phrase: mile high club
I know what it means, but I can't think of an equivalent in Spanish for "the mile high club".
The context is, someone arrives at an airport and a friend picks him up and asks: "You joined that Mile High Club yet?"


Thanks!

"cardar a les altures"
Explanation:
Jo proposo dues alternatives:
1) "Ja has cardat a les altures?" que és molt col·loquial -adequat en una conversa entre amics- i deixa clar quin és el significat de l'expressió anglesa, o bé
2) "Ja pertanys al Club Mile High?", que manté l'expressió anglesa, però que potser molts lectors no entendran.
