    I work in IT but that's not really relevant. I commute between SYD and BNE 3-4 times/month (from August plan is to reduce the commute to twice a month) and travel is self funded but that's not really relevant either. Add another 4-5 trips to Thailand every year and the flights add up.

    Re: What jobs does everyone do, to do so much flying

    I have a national role in Franchise Development, this allows me to travel around the country meeting current and potential Franchisees.
    25% of my role is dedicated to Asia pacific and the development of our network in AP, so flights to Asia a couple of times a year and a trip to the International Franchise Associations conference in the US every year.

    We don't really have a BFOTD rule but company prefers VA so this allows me to never book getaway fares and flights with Singapore/Delta etc.

    Re: What jobs does everyone do, to do so much flying

    I am a National Sales Manger. I work for a compnay that imports parts from the USA based in Indianapolis and Nashville strangely enough. We also have a warehouse in Singapore. So that sums up my airtime.
    Good thread and as someone has already said, "interesting".
    Safe travels.

    Re: What jobs does everyone do, to do so much flying

    I'm a General Manager for an Australian company in the sheepskin leather industry. We have a factory in China and wholesale in Australia, and regularly attend exhibitions around the world, mainly HK, China and Milan. I also travel to Istanbul twice a year for business as well bringing back leather samples. That's my opportunity to fly business class as I require the extra baggage and need to be rested.

    Re: What jobs does everyone do, to do so much flying

    I work in IT for a national company, I travel a little for work mainly between Sydney and Brisbane. But most of my points come from other earning potential, of the 1m points I racked up in the last 18months only ~70k where from actual flights.

    I'm a private investor in tech companies.
    Manage investments in Melbourne, Singapore, Tokyo, San Francisco and Washington DC.

    About to make an investment in Vietnam.

    i travel 2 weeks a month, typically 3-4 countries in 5 days within Asia and take 2-3 trips to USA. When I don't travel I laze about in BrisVegas.

    All self funded, economy everywhere and PE to/from USA. Most USA tickets are return from LAX/SFO to Asia, PE usually less than $2k return, just need to plan in advance. Fly Southwest in USA, sometimes AA. Already clocked up 50+ nights w SPG this year, easy to do in Asia.

    Cheers
    BF
