Topic of the Week: 2014 Flying Summary


Well that’s it. 2014 is over and I had an interesting year of flying. I didn’t leave the country once, which seems crazy. But I already have two trips planned that will take me elsewhere in 2015.

For me, the most exciting part of the year was getting on the Convair 580 and flying around O’ahu on the Bellanca.

Miles: 32,199 (52,763 last year)
Segments: 33 (27 last year)
New Aircraft: Convair 580, Bellanca CH-300, A330-200

  1. Hi Brett!
    I assume you got this stats from flightmemory.com. Are you not going to post the route picture this year?

    As for my year, my work doesn’t get me up in the air much, so I always make it a goal to at least fly once a year. I was lucky enough, however, to get two RTs in this year. So…

    Miles: 2,013
    Segments: 5
    New Aircraft: ERJ-190
    New Airlines: N/A
    New Airports: PVD
    Most Common Aircraft: CRJ-700
    Most Common Airline: US & UA
    Most Common Airport: CLT (4 Arr & 4 Dep)

    Pretty pathetic compared to others here, but I was happy to take a quick layover in PHL on one the trips just add another TO & landing and to ride the ERJ-190 which I had yet to fly. :-)

  2. Miles flown – roughly 35,000
    New planes – 747-400 extended range
    New Airline – Qantas
    New Airports – Brisbane, Sydney & Auckland

    Most frequent airport – BWI
    Most frequent type of plane – 737(700 & 800 series)

    Happy New Year – Chris

      1. It was good – especially since the MSP-MDW route isn’t the busiest in their schedule. There were some problems with weather in Chicago (shocking!), and their ground staff was always sharing information, and were generally terrific. The in-flight product was decent – something between Delta and Frontier. If I ever have a reason to fly somewhere they can take me again, I would not hesitate to do so.

  6. Well, I don’t do the flightmemory, etc. to track my flights like a true fanboy, but since every flight I took this year was on DL (or codeshare) they track things for me pretty well, some things from memory of course.

    Miles: 21,782 (lowest in 5 years!)
    Segments: 24
    New Aircraft: 737-900ER
    Most common aircraft: A320
    New Airport: MSY, JAN
    Longest Flight: MSP-LAX
    Most Frequent Airport: DCA

    1. So close to silver… If I were you I would have done a small mileage run at the end. Also, as a New Orleans resident, sorry you had to experience MSY. They’re supposed to be building a new terminal that’s going to be real nice, but until then, it’s kinda shitty.

      1. Why do a mileage run? Most benefits from silver can generally be had by having a cobranded credit card.

        1. I wasn’t that close to silver because I counted miles flown that I didn’t get FF credit for because I paid with my skypesos.

          Silver is a joke status because the Delta Amex gives you the same thing…not like silvers ever get an upgrade. The Gate Lice for Zone 1 boarding is insane because of that damn CC.

    So why do I bother to comment on CFs blog? This morning, while at home, I became aware of the sound of an airplane engine and thought that normally people don’t unless it is really loud. I also thought that I am less and less enthralled with airlines. Anyhow, ’till my enthrallment is gone I’ll comment though i take no plane rides.


  8. Miles: 25,022 (26,189 last year)

  14. Only had six RTs this year, though that felt like a lot for me. Plus, all were in a 14 week span between March and June.

    Tried Frontier for the first time, with no complaints.
    I did get to experience an American charter and Delta charter (NCAA Basketball tournament; I was in the band)- both of whom were better than Southwest charters in previous years, but can’t compare to Miami Air International in 2013. Delta also lost a piece of drum equipment…still not sure how they pulled that off.

    Most common airport was OMA (former home base), followed by ORD (the intermediary with the new home base, MKE). OMA-ORD was my most common pairing (6 segments; involved on exactly half of my trips).

    More than anything, I learned that every airline is basically the same in economy, so there’s no reason to base a purchase decision on more than price, schedule, and plane type.

    As much as I’d like to fly more in 2015, I only had to pay full price myself for one of 2014’s trips, so that’s unlikely. I can only hope that there’s cheap availability on ERJ-170/175s when I do get to fly.

    1. One edit – Total 2014 mileage is 63,135. Can’t read or write today.

      and I am SoCal based.

    New Airport: IAD

    Airport I won’t transit through again if I have my druthers: IAD
    Segments Flown: 6
    Miles flown: No clue, I do this by hand. ;-)
    Most frequent non-directional flight: SEA-LAX with 2 flights
    Airline I intended to fly but didn’t get on: US. (Bumped to UA and AA)
    New Airplane Type: ERJ145LR
    Most flown on airplane type: 737-800 (5 segments)

    1. IAD is a place filled only with tears and misery… let me guess, you were connecting to a UA RJ?

      1. Yup.. Though the UA mainline side of things didn’t look that great either.

        I also got to ride on one of those moon buggies.. Though that was anticlimactic.

        I was also surprised at how poor my former home airport (DAY) was for watching the ramp. They only had these little skinny windows that left much to be desired.. (That and I was at the airport for much longer than expected… US set their connection times up far to close and I had misconnects that were pre-emptively reaccommodated each way.)

        1. Oh yeah, I got the moon buggy treat at IAD a few years back. Though my best moon buggy ride was years ago at JFK when I was 5 years old: I got on the buggy, promptly fell asleep, and was utterly surprised when I was woken up shortly thereafter to get on the plane — I thought the buggy was the plane!

        2. Eh, I will take DAY anytime over CVG. Reasonably easy in and out of there, though it still can’t beat TPA in my book.

          1. Been a long time since I’ve been at CVG. Flew out of A once. And the DL/Comair remote terminal once.

            Still CVG has to be easier than LAX.


    2. IAD B terminal is actually kind of nice. Which is funny, because it’s the non-UA terminal. At least LH got smart and moved its operations from C to B.

      I worked for UAX back in ’01/’02, and strangely that A terminal hasn’t really gotten better.

      1. I’m really quite surprised they haven’t just built a new terminal further out and knocked down the existing one.. Its not as if they’ve got a shortage of land.

        Though I also realize my one major complaint was the stupidity of going up stairs just to go down stairs so that there is enough clearance below, it just was stupid and annoying on my cranky lack of sleep from a red eye in a middle seat… (Have they not heard of digging down and making a ramp?)

    3. Also meant to say that while I live ~6 miles from IAD, I tend to fly a lot more out of DCA. I’m doing a bit of 1W flying these days, which requires me to get to ORD or JFK most of the time. AA serves neither from IAD (yeah, no ORD service even, although they do fly to MIA) but they do serve from DCA. So I find myself at DCA much more often.

      IAD is a rare “treat.”

    New airlines: MH, MAS Wings, JAL, and maybe a UAX carrier that I didn’t pay attention to.
    New airports: ICN, HND, KIX, ITM, BKI, SDK

    My flying consisted of the circle the pacific trip I put together with AA miles, which counted for 13 segments, and 4 more domestic segments to visit family.

    Next year is probably going to be more miles (and new airlines, airports, and products) as I’m planning a trip to Australia in a couple of months, and over Xmas/NY a trip to Vietnam.

  34. Actually had a few real flights that weren’t non rev, a quickie RT to SFO and a one way PHX-BWI (drove back!). Two or three non revs to Hawaii, a Cancun, and a few San Diego trips. Not much, sadly. But got some fun planned for 2015 on American.

  35. 169,504 miles on 140 flights.
