I’ve always thought there’s no such thing as too much travel, but I think I’ve finally reached that point. Looking back at my travel since the double EQM promotion started in mid-March, I’ve flown around 150,000 miles and 150 segments. That comes out to 50,000 miles and 50 segments per month, which is roughly the same as what most pilots and flight attendants fly.
The funniest part about traveling so much has to be flying out of Tampa, because so many flight attendants and pilots live here and commute. Last month I sat next to a pilot as he was on his way home from a trip, and three days later we both flew back to Washington. He had the three days off, I had class.
After this weekend I probably won’t step foot on another airplane for at least a month, which will be quite a transition. While I’m looking forward to it as of now, I’m sure in about a week I’ll want to fly (but worry not, I won’t).
Either way, I never thought flying could take such a toll on me. For the first time I can remember, I actually took a nap this afternoon. I’m just plane exhausted!
