How My 2019 Went

Hey!

(Yes, I realize it’s already January 2, but I forgot to post it)😅
Last year, in 2019, I flew many times to various destinations around the globe, all for leisure! The year was amazing for me both in terms of aviation and personal life, and I hope 2020 is better!

With over 35 flights taken onboard 15 different airlines, it was one of my best years in terms of travel! I traveled on 19 different aircraft, ranging from the small CRJ-900 to a much larger A330neo, and even an A380! The airline I flew onboard the most this year was Lufthansa, with 9 flights, although United was pretty close with 8 flights taken. I flew the most in November with 12 flights, and most of my flights were on Sunday. The aircraft I flew the most was the Airbus A320 family, and I flew from San Francisco the most. I flew in Economy 24 times, Economy Plus/Premium Economy 7 times, and in Business Class 5 times.

19 different aircraft in 1 year? Wow…

In all my time of flying, and I fly maybe 10-15 times a year not much compared to you and I have only ever flown 2 airlines and 2 different aircraft.

Never been on a widebody. Looks like you had fun!

Because of United’s hub at San Francisco, even flying short haul routes means you can fly wide-bodies!

I didn’t actually realize how many different aircraft I flew until I put them all in FR24, so I suggest doing that!

Wow…, that are a lot of routes.
The only routes I’ve done with a plane this year was AMS-BCN and BCN-AMS.
Hope you had fun in 2019, lets hope 2020 has some good things for everyone too
