2014 Year in Review: Flights

Happy Thanksgiving!  I spent some time over the weekend compiling a few stats from my 2014 travel.  These numbers include my December travel.  You can read about my 2013 flights here.  In 2014, I didn't travel at all for business and flew on half a dozen award tickets so I will be losing my United Premier Gold status early next year.  I still managed to fly over 65,000 miles after flying 87,000 in 2013 and 107,000 in 2012.

I redeemed United, Singapore Airlines, and American miles for an awesome trip to Bali and our upcoming trip to Hong Kong and Taipei.  I flew Singapore Suites, Asiana Suites Class and will be flying United's 747 Global First in addition to American's Flagship First on their new 777-300 ER.

Here are a few of the highlights:
  • Visited 8 countries (2 new)
  • Visited 2 continents (Europe & Asia)
  • Flew on 6 airlines (United, Singapore, Thai, Asiana, and Winair, and Cathay Pacific)
  • Flew 40 segments
  • Flew 65,418 miles
  • Visited 22 airports in 13 countries including 7 US States
  • Shortest flight will be St. Marteen to St. Barth's at 20 miles
  • Longest flight will be San Francisco to Hong Kong at 6,927 miles
  • The best flight of the year was definitely our Singapore Suites flight from SIN to LAX
