In late August, cheap fares to Dublin returned, so I picked one up in anticipation of working on my American Executive Platinum requalification. As I was packing flights into my fall schedule, I wound up scheduling this trip the day after my drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, leaving me with effectively a long layover in New York City.
As far as the trip title goes, I:
- Departed New York on Wednesday for San Francisco
- Departed Los Angeles on Thursday for New York
- Departed New York on Friday for London
- Returned from Düsseldorf the following Thursday
15316 miles in 9 days… an average speed of 70 miles per hour, a need for speed.
