Some People Are Insane

Nearly two weeks afterwards, I still haven’t started posting my photos from oneworld MegaDo (besides the Cathay Pacific 777 masthead for this blog).

At Dallas, American gave us some statistics about their customers (and us). As it turns out, some people are more insane than myself when it comes to frequent flying.

The American representative confirmed that those miles flown were entirely butt-in-seat.  To put those numbers in perspective, flying 1.033 million miles per year requires flying 2832 miles per day.  New York to San Francisco is only 2568 miles.

If constrained by flying only 271 segments per year, each flight needs to average 3814 miles.  New York to London is only 3451 miles.
