I think these numbers are a little bit low. Probably most of the DA.Cers have at least been on 100 flights or so and some are even pilots here!

Tons! I'd say I've flown at least 200 someodd times; a few have been on 9 carriers (Alaska, United, American, Delta, Continental, PSA, AirCal, Southwest, Mexicana) there were also many private pilot flight lessons and other random rides. Notable flights include 2 solo flights in Cessna 172s, 3 flights in a Boeing B-17G, a KC-10, HC-130, RC-45 and a blimp flight.

Way too many to remember or count, but I will always remember my first flight 7 years old in the right seat of a AAL DC-7 over Grand Canyon and the Captain letting me take the wheel. Trouble was I couldnt see out the window unless I stood up on the seat. Imagine being allowed to do that today, well maybe on AFL.

Let's see now..........

Rome from Aberdeen twice as a youngster. That's 4 per trip. OK, so 8.

Luton twice which is two per trip so that's another 4.

Vacation trip Jersey-Gatwick-Atlanta-Roanoke-CVG-Chicago-Salt Lake - Seattle - CVG - Gatwick - Jersey. That makes 11.

Two ad-hoc business trips to Jersey back in the day. That's 4 per trip making another 8.

Perhaps as many as 50 trips to London for work over the course of a year and a half at Keith Prowse in Aberdeen making 100.

Lived in Jersey for 6 months and did two trips home to Aberdeen and month. That makes 8 a month, over six months, is 48 flights.

About 15 trips to London since moving back to Aberdeen from Aussie. That makes 30 sectors.

Moving to New Zealand, I flew ABZ-LHR-LAX-AKL-BNE-AKL. That's 6 sectors. During my time there I did a number of trips to Aussie and the South Pacific islands, maybe making an additional 40 sectors.

Flew home from Brisbane on BNE-AKL-LAX-LHR-ABZ so that's 5.

Vacation to Aussie in 2000 which flew me ABZ-LHR-BWN-BNE-AKL-NAN-BNE-BWN-LHR-ABZ so that's 9 more.

Last November's vacation in the US was ABZ-LHR-JFK-STL-SEA-DFW-BOS-LHR-ABZ so there's 8.

First ever trip to the US was ABZ-AMS-DTW-ROA-DTW-ABZ so there's 6.

This year's Dallas show took me ABZ-LGW-BOS-LAX-SAN-DFW-LGW-ABZ so there's 7.

LAX show in Jan was ABZ-LHR-LAX-IAH-MIA-EWR-LHR-ABZ so that's 7 again.

Did Newark in June which was ABZ-LHR-EWR-LHR-ABZ so 4. Also Seattle and the LAX show, also in June. That was ABZ-LHR-SEA-LAX-PHX-LHR-ABZ so there's six.

Seattle again in October was straightforward 4 sectors.

Barcelona was ABZ-AMS-BCN-AMS-ABZ so that's 4.

Newark show ABZ-LHR-EWR-LHR-ABZ so 4 more.

That makes 319 sectors within the past four years.

Lots missing from there too. Would probably put total at close to 500 - with 95% having been in the last 5 years.

Imagine that, with new job, this figure will probably double in the space of a year!

Nah, I've got a long way to go before I reach that level, not to mention that I haven't reached flight attendant status either, like our boy Eddy.

Hey Eddy, we didn't need a breakdown, just a number!

We actually have a contest amongst us mgmt pukes to see who flies the most segments and mile in a given year. Last year's winner: 300+ segments and 350K miles. The guy is nuts, especially given the fact that all the flying is done on the weekend.

Now Eddy, go back and add to that the particular aircraft type and the registration of each of those flights that you listed. Extra credit will be awarded for correct Boeing "customer number" of the a/c where applicable. And, penalty will be applied for each and every segment where you cannot specify a/c type.

Penalty to be paid in the form of worthy and noble Scottish exports, only.

Default Hard to remember

at least 73 flights from a point "A" to point "B". Some of this flights were as short as 35 minutes flight from SBA to LAX to a longer trip such as LAX to HNL or a LAX -SCL non-stop.
__________________________________________________

LAX-SJD-PVR-ZLO-GDL-MEX-LIM-SCL

My longest trip was going back to Chile after being away for 8 years. My flight started in Los Angeles at 8AM on 06/11/92 arriving in Santiago-Chile around 6AM the following day. In short a 19 hours trip for a 11 to12 hours/flight trip.

Problems... problems... so many problems...

If you've flown exactly 10 flights do you vote "1-10" or "10-15"? How about those who have 15, 20 or 30 flights? And just think of the mental anguish experienced by those here who've flown exactly 71, 72, 73 or 74 flights? How do they vote? Jeez, talk about voter disenfranchisement...

Have done perhaps 200 sectors in the last five months.

100 of these have been on narrow A319s, A320s, 737-300s, 737-400s and 737-500s to get me to and from work in London.

2 of these have been on Boeing 747-400s for my fam flights to Nigeria and the remaining 98 have all been on British Airways 777-200s through North America and The Caribbean.

I've been on 18 commercial flights in my life not a whole lot but I've flown on several airlines Delta, American, Mexicana and Aeromexico. There have been some flights that I would Also like to forget. I have been on a flight were there were Thunderstroms the turbulance was insane I thought I the plane would crash like the Delta Airlines Flight 191 were it crashed becasuse Of windshear I Still get sweaty palms thinking about it. The only thing I get scared when I fly is that since I dont fly very often I get very nervous at the airport and when the plane is about to take off but I wish I wasnt scared of flying sometimes but I guess not flying a lot does that.

I get scared just watching those big things, I don't know how you brave guys can get up the guts to climb on one of them.
I'm glad that I'm not the only one who is frightened by airplanes, I hate to be alone.

Buford talks a tough game but in reality, he's a big 'fraidy-cat when it comes to flying. So when you see him at one of the shows (like LAX this July) he actually drove his tricked-out 1979 Chevy Chevette cross-country to get there.

You forgot to mention the best part about my Chevette; It’s a 1.8 Liter Diesel GT model.
It may not be very fast but it sure is slow..

Hey, other celeb's are afraid to fly too, such as my idol John Madden.

Default Short and fat vs. long and skinny

What the hell are you talking about (safety card)????

Is a ride in a CRJ-900 considered flying? (Not that I have).
I had an opportunity to get in one and have a look around, I stood in the back and looked forward, and it reminded me of looking through a 12' section of sprinkler PVC.
Do you think that they'll ever build a Regional that will hold as many as a wide-body?

I had the impresion that even a plane' safety card would give you the chills..

L-1011s seldom were used for trips shorter than 30 minutes, I think that should make this plane to be considered the very first RJ.

Things to do in order to overcome flying phobia:
a.- Practice booking a flight over the phone and/or online, explain the person that answer the call the full purpose of your call and to please cancel the booking after you have hung up.
b.- get yourself a plane seat in ebay. A coach seat builts character.
c.- Practice seating on it (at first do not buckle it up the seat belt) Practice asking for a fresh salad, matches or seconds in your meals.
d.- At the supermarket look for the longest line during checkout. When asked for paper or plastic ask for a window seat and tell her that you have an eticket.
e.- Look for a high building go to the roof and put a chair as close to the edge as possible. If you have already purchased that plane seat I would encorauge to use it. Sit down on the aforementioned chair checking that you have a good view od the street down. Move/shake that seat as violent as you can side ways, up and down, front to back. All this while looking down. have your seat belt fastened to make you feel safe.

It's time to overcome that fear.

Good luck!!!

OMG you are a baby just go up in one.

The best part is taking off and looking at the other planes taxing and seeing how fast you really are going

LoL

Landing is kinda scary because if you are by the window and the wing you see how flimsy the wings really are!!

I'm just trying to freak you out its fine just remember what I said

Get your arse in a plane and fly already. How can you collect the cute little models if you're scared of the real thing?

Last week was a 30-hour marathon run to rescue my folks: IAH-EWR-GVA-EWR-IAH, three legs of which were on the same 767-200. I was cooked by the time I got back home.

Around 20-30 I think. My last flight was on a Philippine Airlines A340, I think, from Cagayan de Oro to Manila.

Well i've been flying since I was 11 days old. Flown mostly on Cathay Pacific so my guess is over a hundred flights.

P.S. A A340 can land and leave in Cagayan de Oro?

Wish I had a job that would allow me to travel on Comm Air more often. But I've been lucky to have traveled this great land so I can't really complain.

Hey... there's no "0" selection on the pole!

Never been up in one, and not really sure if I'll ever have a need to. (but have been an avid follower since a very young age - planes are just fascinating!)
