As soon as all the flights from this past weekend post, I’ll be well beyond 50,000 elite qualifying miles for the year. It’s not all that impressive, other than the fact that all my travel was domestic, which means I’m at nearly 50 segments. I’ve flown every single week, have far too many redeyes to speak of, and of course all too many Saturdays where I had to get up before 5AM. But nonetheless I feel pretty damn good.
I’m taking next week off, and frankly the thought of a week without flying kind of makes me happy. I’m sure I’ll be itching to fly by the time I get back on a plane, but for a week I’ll get to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, not the least of which is sleeping in on the weekend.
And after that travel will get a bit more fun. Just a normal mileage run the weekend after, but then comes a first class trip to Asia which I’m still in the process of planning, so stay tuned.
Happy travels to all!
