    What is a non-directional route?

    • CF says:

      That means that you flew it either way. So I didn’t fly Long Beach – Phoenix 3 times, but instead I flew it twice and Phoenix – Long Beach once. But since I’m calling it a non-directional route, I combine them into one.

  26. yo says:

    This non rev king barely flew, a couple short hops to SAN and OAK a RT to BWI, one trip to OGG and one to LIH.

    But, I did fill in my Boeing card by getting on a 707 (KC-135R) PHX-ABQ-Andrews AFB R/T.

    I miss the days of getting the rare birds on my list, L1011, 747SP, Tu134, Tu135, IL 62M, Fokker F50, F70, F28, F100, MD-11,DC-3. Had a chance at a YS-11, but the airline was so dodgy I flew Lao Aviation instead..

    Only tough ones now for me are DC 4,6,7,8, 747-100 -SR, Yak 40

    • Hunter says:

      Seems the only way to get the rare birds anymore is to fly those dodgy airlines in other countries. I guess it’s all a risk reward question, huh?

      • yo says:

        Phuket Airlines was so bad that the Laotian Airline looked better. They also had several 747-100’s as well, but, it was a miracle there was no crash.

    I apologize to everyone who didn’t have their comments go live right away today. As you can imagine, my spam filter is working overtime since a lot of these comments with their aircraft types, airport codes, and city pairs look like spam. I’ve been clearing them periodically throughout the day, but if you see anything that didn’t make it, just email cf@crankyflier.com.

    The one new thing was winning a flight on the Boeing 40C at the Airliners International show in Portland.

    It was a lame year for me, unfortunately. I flew more but shorter distances as my flights to India were replaced by short hops like DFW-STL.

    Miles: 16,808
    Segments: 30
    New aircraft: None
    New airlines: None
    New airports: AUS, CLE, LIT
    Most common aircraft: MD80
    Most common airline: AA
    Most common airport: DFW (home airport); STL (most frequently visited)
    Most common route: DFW-STL
    Most bizarre routing: HOU-DAL-LIT and back. Why? I live in Dallas, but was in Houston on business when I had to fly to Little Rock. So I ended up hopping on a WN flight, resulting in being a connecting passenger in DAL, my home town.
