The end of 2013 is here, which seems like a perfect time to summarize my flight activity over the last year.
Last year’s numbers were high due to a particularly busy July and August 2012, which were alone responsible for a third of that year’s travel. I didn’t end up having quite that busy of a travel season this year, so my number of flights dropped, but they were still higher than most years.
I visited 11 airports for the first time this year:
|#38||AUS||Austin, Texas, United States|
|#39||BOS||Boston, Massachusetts, United States|
|#40||DTW||Detroit, Michigan, United States|
|#41||DEN||Denver, Colorado, United States|
|#42||GRK||Killeen/Fort Hood, Texas, United States|
|#43||ITO||Hilo, Hawaii, United States|
|#44||PDX||Portland, Oregon, United States|
|#45||TUL||Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States|
|#46||IAH||Houston–Bush Intercontinental, Texas, United States|
|#47||MHT||Manchester, New Hampshire, United States|
|#48||MDW||Chicago–Midway, Illinois, United States|
I’d actually diverted to GRK before for a DFW thunderstorm, but we didn’t get off the plane, so I didn’t get to count it then. Otherwise, I was able to pick up a few hubs I hadn’t been to before, and the rest were new destinations.
I flew on three airlines for the first time:
I had hoped to maintain at least American Airlines AAdvantage Gold and United Mileage Plus Silver this year, but I only ended up having two trips on American, so I’m back down to nothing there. I did maintain Silver on United, and Gold with Hilton HHonors.
