With all the flying I’ve been doing lately, I’ve come to realize I may fly too much. I feel like Ryan Bingham from Up in the Air or at the least Johnny Jet. Over the next six weeks, I will be traveling to several destinations in Canada, the US, the UK, and Australia for both business and pleasure. It’s a hectic travel schedule and one that will definitely help me rack up a lot of frequent flier miles. I’m going flying more times in six weeks than I have most of this year. While I may not fly 100,000 miles a year like the true elite fliers, I’m up in the air enough to consider myself a frequent flier. Here are some signs that you might be too:
You have your passport number memorized by heart.
You refer to cities by their airport code.
The flight attendants know you by name.
You think airplane food isn’t that bad.
Airplane wine? Yes, please!
You have multiple airline credit cards.
You went through a special TSA security process so you can get into the fast security line.
Immigration greets you by name.
You don’t spend money if it doesn’t give you airline miles.
You sign up for new credit cards if they offer mile deals.
They named a plane after you.
You know the type of food each airline serves.
Even pilots don’t fly as much as you.
You are in airplanes more than you are in cars.
You know exactly how long it takes from your house to the gate…to the second.
You do all your shopping from SkyMall.
You actually know the names of the in-flight magazine authors.
You know the interior layout for every plane type.
You have airport layouts memorized.
You can identify planes just by looking at them.
You know airlines just by looking at the logo on the tail.
You’re on your second passport…..this year.
