2013 Flying Summary

It’s for the year-end travel summary. This year saw a big jump in travel for me. I flew more more miles in 2013 than any year since 2005, the last time I actually worked for an airline. That’s definitely a surprise since my daughter was born in the middle of 2013 but the two European trips and one Asian trip certainly helped.

Miles: 52,763 (26,242 last year) – most since 2005
Segments: 27 (17 last year) – most since 2009
New Aircraft: ERJ-175
New Airlines: Korean, Jin Air, Compass
New Airports: Dublin, Seoul (Incheon and Gimpo), Jeju, Busan
Most Common Aircraft: CRJ-900, 757-200, 737-800, and A320 (4 flights each)
Most Common Airline: American (8 segments)
Most Common Airport: LAX (8 departures/8 arrivals)
Most Common Non-Directional Route: Long Beach – Phoenix (5 segments)

Here is my FlightMemory domestic travel map beginning when I started keeping track of flights in 1994:

And here is the international map, which finally had a line drawn to Asia for the first time this year.
