Justin Does…2015 Travel Review

In 2015, I traveled more than in previous years (2014, 2013). I easily requalified for American Airlines’ top tier Executive Platinum status, even with the increased qualification requirements. While I didn’t blog as much as previous years, I’ve been working behind the scenes on a blog make-over (to be revealed soon)!

As for flights, I took 157 domestic flights in 2015:

A few statistics:

  • A total 129,829 butt-in-seat miles were flown – enough miles to circumnavigate the earth 5.21 times
  • I spent 15.7 days or over 376 hours in an airplane
  • I was at 40 airports in 8 countries
  • My longest flight was 7,256 miles (LAX to Hong Kong)
  • My shortest flight was 84 miles (Kona to Kahului, Maui)
