1 Million Miles
Ok.. so I actually got to a Million a few days ago.
Work commitments and work travel (another 11,000 miles) have kept me from updating the blog.
So some totals -
Mileage earned: 1,003,625
Current Flight Segments in Aeroplan account: 276
Days I have been in an airplane: 56 out of the last 61.
Favorite Air Canada aircraft: B767-300
Times I have seen March of the Penguins: 0
I never actually got thru it without falling asleep.
and finally..weight change: +8lbs.
I attribute it to the lack of on board fruit plates in November led to increased consumption of cookies in the Maple Leaf Lounges..and what's a cookie without a glass of Baileys????
What's next? Well I have travelled 3/4 a way around the world in the last 3.5 days and completed my bi annual simulator session in Frankfurt (Calgary Frankfurt on Air Canada :) )
I am now in Hong Kong. Within 4 hrs of moving into my apartment I had a house guest. Fellow mileage runner Sean, in the middle of 6 back to back transpacific segments, rang me up and took advantage of my fresh digs to shower and sleep the 8 short hrs between his flights to from Chicago - to Chicago. Then back to Bangkok!
Well I can recommend the following blog or a very good friend who is the IT Manager on the MV Constellation Celebrity Cruise ship:
Those who have not checked out Flyertalk really need to
The information is as current as you will find anywhere, the people friendly, and the chance you will score some $20 Business Class tickets to Shanghai very high :)
I myself need to get to bed in a prone position for some serious rest,
Thank you to everyone at Air Canada, Aeroplan, and Flyertalk. This past two months has been a fantastic experience, and I met some truly exceptional people.
Thank you all, and good night.
