There’s another year in the books. My mileage wasn’t much higher than the year before, but my segment count? Well, that was 4x last year. I went back to the more normal pattern with more short-haul, but this is still far from normal.
Miles: 11,674 (10,041 last year)
Segments: 16 (4 last year)
New Aircraft: None
New Airlines: Avelo
New Airports: Arcata/Eureka, Ogden
Most Common Aircraft: 737-800 (6 flights)
Most Common Airline: Southwest (6 segments)
Most Common Airport: Long Beach (3 departures/4 arrivals)
Most Common Non-Directional Route: Long Beach – Phoenix (4 segments)
While I’m here, I thought I’d look back to when I started keeping track of my flights in summer of 1994. Since that time, I’ve flown nearly 940,000 miles. My top airline was, unsurprisingly, America West with 209 flights. Southwest follows with 141, then American at 74 and United at 66. That’s pretty crazy considering I actually worked for United but not Southwest or American.
My most common aircraft type is the A320 with 136 flights followed by the 737-300 on 131 flights, both types operated by America West. And my most common route? It’s no contest with Phoenix – LA at 68 flights followed by Phoenix – Long Beach at 37.
How’d you do?
