I fly quite a bit. I’m by no means anywhere close to some of my friends who seem to be up in the air more than they are on the ground, but I would consider myself a frequent flyer. Being a frequent flyer affords you some vital skills:
I can pack a week’s clothes in to a carry on, including 3+ pairs of shoes (impressive huh). I have a clear plastic bag of liquids of 3oz or less, ready to go at any moment and I have racked up enough miles to hold an elite status with an international airline every year for the last 4 years. I can pick the quickest security line at a glance by summing up the passengers in line and turbulence can rock me to sleep.
10 signs you travel a lot, or in some cases too much:
- Your carry on is never put away
- Your dog has developed a complex and falls in to a depression when he sees the suitcase on the bed.
- You travel with a seat power adaptor in your bag at all times
- You are the foursquare mayor at one or more gates in any airport terminal
- You are forever on the upgrade list. For every flight. (Damn those warm nuts are good).
- Immigration ask you to replace your passport because it’s too worn to work in the scanners
- When you check in on foursquare it says “congratulations this is your 10th consecutive week of being at this airport/at a hotel”
- TSA agents at your home airport know you by name
- You know the flight schedule of every flight in and out of your home airport to various destinations.
- You have circumnavigated the globe…. More than once…… In a year.
So how did you score?
