My 977th flight today from Penang to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was my 500th route.

Since my first flight 45 years ago, I have spent 131 days instead aeroplanes. If I count check in and waiting times, I have probably spent a year of my life in air travel!

Eleven of my Top 20 routes have been in Australia with sixty nine trips being between Sydney and Melbourne’s main airport Tullamarine. Not surprisingly Melbourne, Australia my home port which I have travelled into or out of 320 times features in eleven of my top routes. Los Angeles which I have travelled into or out of 99 times appears three times. Auckland, New Zealand appears a lot too!
