For those of you who have hit your 100th flight segment, did you do anything special to celebrate or acknowledge the occasion?

I remember my 100th flight segment was an early morning FCO - MUC hop on an LH A320, I was moving back to the US after a number of years in Italy and had been up all the night before packing. I was deathly tired, and had taken the first Eurostar of the day from Florence to Rome and then the Leonardo Express to make my flight. it wasn't until we had already taken off that I realized it was my 100th segment, and had done nothing to make it special!

Hopefully some of you have some more eventful stories to share?

100th sector flown ? Those were the times when I did not even count flights, let alone collect reg numbers.

The only I remember is, that I spent my 600th flight segment onboard a -600 series B737 flying from TOS to LYR (Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen, Norway) in 2008.

Mine was on EC-FOG, an MD-88 of Iberia, flying between Mahon and Barcelona.

Until I just checked, I had no idea it was my 100th flight.

Not really. I didn't start logging my flights until I was 16 (I flew for the first time at the age of 2), so I really don't know which one was my 100th segment. I'd guess I had done 50-75 segments before I started tracking them.

As for the 100th segment that I've actually logged, that was this past March - it was a Delta flight from Detroit to Boston, on board a DC-9-40 (N762NW). I was returning from a grad school tour at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Segment 99 was actually a bit more memorable - it was on a Saab 340, one of only a handful of turboprop flights I've been on.

That's a good question, I never really thought of it. Looking back at my Flight Memory, my 100th flight was on March 26, 1993. It was on Continental Airlines, a B-727 from ONT to DEN. It was memorable for a few reasons:

1. I was traveling with my Model United Nations club from college to our annual convention in NYC. There was a group of about 50 of us college students from UC Riverside.
2. It was my first flight on the new CO globe livery.
3. It was my last round trip through Denver's Stapleton Airport.
4. It was my last round trip through Continental's Denver hub.

We were still using the old Ontario Airport at that time, where you boarded by stairs. I have a photo of friends and me with the pilot at the aircraft's door. I didn't realize at the time that it would be so memorable, but it made for a good 100th! Unfortunately I wasn't tracking flight or reg numbers at that time, and it pre-dates the BTS stats online.

I took the effort to make some calculations ...:
My 100th sector flown was in NOV-1994, flying on a HF B734 HAJ to AGP for a week of vacation in Torremolinos.

I have to check my personnal log for the 100th. I know the 1000th was a Comair Metroliner from APF to MCO in 1995 and number 1001 was was a DL 1011 MCO-CVG..
I did number 2000 a little over a year or so but cannot remember the flight or equipment...again, thats why I keep a log.
My next flight should be around number 2080......close but not exact

I'm not sure what flights I took before age 5 (must have done about 50), but counting from then, my 100th was Singapore Airlines 1st Class Kuala Lumpur to Singapore in a B772ER. My 200th was British Airways A319 Heathrow to Edinburgh. My 300th was City Jet (Air France) from Dublin to London City on an Avro. My next flight (no. 338) this Saturday is Lufthansa A321 from London to Frankfurt.

Like many here, I didn't even know what it was until I looked. But now that I have looked, I see that it was AF383 from CVG-CDG in June, 2006 (I even wrote a trip report about it). That was my first time on AF, first time in Europe, and first time on a 340. Not bad for a 100th flight.

Looks like no. 100 in my life was a Delta MD-88 (N950DL) on a quick GSO-ATL flight in 2005. Took me 20 years to get to 100 flights; in the past 4.5 years I've done 393 flights. At this point, they all pretty much blend together.

I've only kept track of my flights on WN (which I fly almost exclusively).

My 100th flight segment on Southwest was a TUL to PHX leg where my wife and I were returning from a Christmas trip to her folks. It was flight 905 on 28-Dec-08 but for some reason, I didn't get the tail number.

My 100th flight was on 12/07/2006 CHC-WLG Air New Zealand Link ATR72-500 ZK-MCW. It was an extremely turbulent flight up the East Coast of South Island New Zealand, but at the end of it, I was in what has become one of my favourite world cities, so it will live long in the memory!

If we are counting sectors, rather than flights, then my 100th sector was just a few days earlier, 02/07/2006 LAX-AKL Air New Zealand B747-400 ZK-SUI. Another memorable flight, as 12 hours after leaving LA, I had finally arrived in the country I'd always wanted to visit, and has since held a very special place in my heart!

Just two days ago, I flew my 250th sector, DUB-LTN with Ryanair EI-DLW. I still await my 250th flight, but hope to get there this year!

Mine was FLL-DCA on NK it was a good flight I got the big seat up front. I did not do anything special for it though. I will do something for my 200th maybe.

My 100th was flying LAX-YVR returning from a quick trip down there (where my parents were on vacation). I didn't even notice until I looked now. That was in June 09

My 200th was flying YYJ-YVR to do a YYJ-YVR-YXT-YVR-YXC-YVR-YYJ trip (all in the same day). That was in November 09.

Not the best time of year to be arriving at the windy city. There's a reason that WLG's local rugby team is called the Hurricanes! Have you checked out the You Tube video of some rather hairy landings at WLG?

I have checked those out yeah, great footage!

This wasn't just windy in to Wellington, it was from the moment wheels were up in Chrischurch, all the way up the South Island, and in to WLG.

Flying out few days later to ROT was much smoother, and afforded great views of the city on departure.

Looking back at my log, it looks like my 100th flight segment was actually on G-NFLC, the HP Jetstream 1 used by Cranfield College of Aeronautics.

While I was at the University of Limerick studying Aeronautical Engineering, the Cranfield based aircraft operated out of Shannon for a few days in 2003 as part of our flight mechanics course... some interesting flying!

As others have listed them...

200th Flight:-
22nd February 2007
CDG - TLS
AFR7786
A319-100
F-GRHF

300th Flight:-
29th December 2008
CLT - PHL
AWE1528
B767-200ER
N253AY

...next flight will be #373, so still shy of the 400 mark.



Most Flown:- G-BUVA (20 Flights), EI-DEB (12 Flights), EI-JFK (11 Flights)
