Frequent flyer loves high air-mile club

Mary-Anne Toy Herald Correspondent in Beijing | March 31, 2007



FRAN JELLEY'S itinerary sounds like the flight plan from hell. The 59-year-old education consultant flew from Sydney to Washington via Singapore, Shanghai, Tokyo and San Francisco so she could catch the inaugural direct flight from the US capital to Beijing. But the routing was deliberate. She did it just for kicks.


By the time Ms Jelley gets back to her home in Lewisham on April 10, she will have clocked up 42,488 miles (68,378 kilometres). That is 88 hours and 52 minutes in the air, not including delays.


This might sound unbearable to many people, but for Ms Jelley it was almost purely business-class pleasure all the way.


...

Sounds familiar? ;)

Kiwi Flyer and I (in this thread so far) have had the pleasure of meeting Fran Jelley at Flyertalk's ozfest I (2004). She is indeed a member of Flyertalk and doing a very FT/AFF type of travel.

Yup. In the current 2 week period I fly similar total distance, albeit over quite a lot more flights.
