Airports and Airlines XVI

My travels for 2014 are likely over — and I was surprised to realize that I had not updated this in almost two years — so I had to do a lot of thinking and examining of my calendar to remember all the new airlines, airports, and airplanes that I had used, visited, and flown.  There’s a tiny chance that I will fly somewhere for Christmas, but, if I do, it would be  on an airline I’ve used before, to some place I’ve been before, and on a type of equipment that I’ve flown before.

The highlights of the last two years? Asia, it’s airlines, airports — getting there on the 787.  HND, NRT, HIJ, FUK, ICN, and HKG — plus, depending upon how you count it, GUM — with ANA, Asiana, and, not that it is new, United.  Throw in northern bits of the UK, and my non-US count shot up dramatically.

Within the 50 United States, I’ve added only one mainline carrier: Hawaiian — one of two airlines named after a state — and it’s 717, a plane that is difficult to find and fly.

The first couple months of 2015 promise to be exciting (at least for me) with two new airlines and five new airports — and, I believe, one new type of aircraft, the Dornier 328 – 110.

I might note that at least one of the US airports that I have flown to will be losing commercial service in 2015 — and it would not surprise me if a second airport also lost commercial service: CLD for sure, LAR likely.
