With 113 total flights, this was a record flying year for me – the first year I’ve ever exceeded 100 flights. My work flights alone this year exceeded my total flights last year.
My hotel nights were pretty consistent with the prior three years; I ended the year with 109 total nights.
I only visited five new airports this year, which puts me at a total of 78 airports visited so far.
Jacksonville, NC (OAJ) • Destin/Fort Walton Beach (VPS)
Bakersfield (BFL) • Tampa (TPA) • Peoria (PIA)
Peoria wasn’t a planned visit – we ended up diverting there and deplaning due to weather in Chicago.
I maintained American Platinum and Hilton Diamond this year, and earned Silver status for both United and Marriott.
So, for the first time, I have legitimate Marriott status – my previous Marriott Gold was a reward for having Gold status on United.
