From my FF records and the other flights I remember, I did around 150* flights in 2005.

Absolutely crazy when you think about it!

I did over 110000 * actual miles. Most of my flights were domestic with several international ones in there as well.

The airlines I flew on this year were:

JAL
Cathay Pacific
Lan Chile
Qantas [including QantasLink and Qantas NZ]
Virgin Blue
OzJet
Malaysian Airlines
FinnAir
British Airways

* Revised due to flaw in my use of FF records.

I had a quiet year with only 20 flights. 18 on QF and 2 on SQ.

If even half of what I know about this year comes off, could be a big year for me. But then, sometimes a directive will come down from up high to cut back travel, and it all stops for a few months.

I did 12..
All QF - 2 international and the rest domestic

thadocta, does this mean you have a PPL? If so, do you fly out of BKK and with which organisation do you hire? (sorry to get off topic)

My records say 32 - but I may have missed a couple taken on airlines I don't belong to in the US.

Had a look at my activity statement and I did 35 flights with separate flight numbers. The breakdown was 31 Qantas, 2 Finnair, 1 British Airways and 1 Air France - 28 domestic and 7 overseas.

The flights included three CBR-SYD-PQQ flights that I would have preferred never to have made, with the serious illness and passing of two close relatives :(

According to my records I returned safely to earth 26 times last calendar year, all in the hands of QF.

This is following a pattern of purposeful flight reduction over the last five years as my wife and family have upgraded me from "lodger" status at home to "regular garden maintenance". :p

Never thought to tally it up and was surprised to find I took 23 flights, despite the travel budget being cut at work. It consisted of:

13 domestic - Qantas mainly (but with a Virgin Blue experiment thrown in)

10 international - distributed amongst:

Qantas
Finnair
Swiss
British Airways
American

All paid for in economy, but with many of the flights being award upgraded to business. Those Qantas people are just so nice... :wink:

I did 34 since April 05:

25: PER - SYD Qantas
5: PER - MEL Qantas
2: PER - Tokyo Qantas
2: PER - Saigon Malaysian

5 of those trips were in business (all domestic, all paid, not upgraded). The rest in cattle class. :shock:

Inneresting to add the ground miles that for me are always associated with the air miles.

However, always fly me there and back so's I'm not battling with the masses of (unrelated) ground feeders on the skinny blacktop that's supposed to pass as highways thru this wide brown .... etc.

128 flights - 94 of those domestic.

Airlines flown QF (96), SQ(12), DJ (5), 3 each on ZL, AA & TL and 2 each on CX, TG & EK. And none on JQ :D

The best bit - haven't been on a plane since Dec 13.
