I'm considering flying somewhere random just to do an interesting trip report. Do you guys have any suggestions for interesting routes? I'm sure that SFO to JFK on NWA is not going to be particularly exciting. Again, I'm looking for interesting flight routes on an interesting airline, which is not necessarily the same thing as just going to interesting destinations.

If you have the money, fly into Orlando. Half way between Tampa and Orlando there is a place called Fantasy of Flight. You cannot miss it, its right off of I-4. I don't know how much it costs but you can get a bi-plane ride or a balloon ride.
Also this sounds more geared for Av polls and prefs.

Quoting MadameConcorde (Reply 5): I would have recommended the Concorde experience but the Ladies are no longer flying...
You should go on the Singapore Airlines A380 from Singapore to Sydney with the return flight.
Quoting BNE (Reply 6): Singapore Airlines A380 flight Singapore to Sydney and return is a good one,
I'm sure those would be very cheap trips considering the OP lives in the USA
I know I'll look like an idiot saying it in light of my above comment, but it seems the TR's of flights in premium cabins seem to get the most views. So, if you're after the "popularity factor" with your TR, fly somewhere in First Class (or Business).
Also, there are already like 11x TR's running about SQ A380 flights, so another would just be a boring addition to the forum. If you want to get a ton of hits, try to get on something like an L-1011, DC8, 707 (Iran has the last couple I think), DC10, etc etc.

EAS routes have always interested me. What about AS in the far North of Alaska or out in the Aleutian Islands? IN keeping in line with what Transpac787 said, you could fly FIrst class to one of the smaller AS destinations. THat would make for an interesting report. A comparo of interisland service in Hawaii would be cool, but getting there could be expensive.

Oh, I've done several "for love of flying" trips...I was constantly on the go, never had a hotel anywhere...
My advise: go to orbitz.com, enter the multi city option, and just put in random city pairs. I saw one the other day that I was tempted to get: ATL-FRA-SFO-PHL-ATL for less than a normal roundtrip ATL-FRA.
Next trip 6/12 - 6/15: MSY-SEA on AS, SEA-LAX on VX, LAX-N.O on Amtrak

- LB flight from MAD to VVI in a L10 aircraft (when I had the chance to reach the destination in an A7 313);
- EO flight from BRU to FIH in a L10 aircraft (when I had the chance to reach the destination in a SN 333).
- BA flight from GLA to BRR in a DH6 aircraft (I wanted to know what was to land in a beach...)
- Saha Air from IKA to KIH in a 703 (amazing flight in the last Boeing 707 scheduled passenger flight)
And this Christmas, my wife and I, will spend our last days of holidays and the last 2007 and new 2008 days at La Gomera (one of the small islands of Canary archipelago).
We will fly to TFN with XG in a 320 and then we will take a BEH aircraft of NT to GMZ. Will be a short flight but I promise to make a trip report if I have free time.
