Now, I’m completely jinxing myself by writing about this beforehand, but it looks like it’ll be a fun day of flying. I’m headed from Seattle to Tampa via Washington Dulles this afternoon, and both flights are “zeroed out” (meaning the flights are booked out, no more seats are available for sale). The awful weather in the Northeast is certainly helping, though at a certain point it will likely have a negative impact on bump chances, as a travel waiver has been issued and many people traveling from the Northeast will probably misconnect in Washington Dulles.
To those of you in the Northeast that had year end mileage runs planned to requalify for a status level, well, my condolences!
This should be my last couple of flights of the year, at which point I can do the math as to just how much I’ve flown this year. It has definitely been a record year for me, though I’m not sure by how much. I believe I did well over 300,000 “butt-in-seat” miles, though.
Here’s to hoping next year will be a bit more slow paced!
