As I was only 4 months old, I don't remember it well... Luckily for my statistics, my dad kept a flight log at the time and I could just import these flights into mine when I started my own log. Since my first flight I've flown nearly 250 flights.

Here is it:

Seat 2F, Saga Class (J). Sitting on my dads lap.  

Connected to a MetroJet by USAir 737-200 (N277AU) the next day, my one and only flight on that airline. I've flown TF-FIN over 30 times after this, last time was exactly 2 years ago (2/6/2010, FI 631 KEF-BOS). Since my first flight on it FIN has been painted into the new livery, got winglets and more. Fun fact: TF-FIN was delivered the very same day as I was born! Appropriate it was my first a/c too.  

cheers, Sveinn Thor

I was around 10 months old and don't remember it at all, I have just the memories of family and a few pictures to recall it by. The background is that my grandfather sold one of his businesses and took the entire family to Malta for Christmas to celebrate.

I was 8 years old.

The flight number was KL1358, I believe. This is extrapolating from the data I have, since it was the morning flight OTP-AMS. Aircraft was definitely a 737-400, and my seat was 19F.

Departure Time 06:00
Arrival Time around 07:50

Connected to a 747 flight to MSP and then a DC-9 flight to MCI.

I'm not sure if this is it, but the earliest flight that I do remember was MRQ (Marinduque)-MNL on a PR Fokker 50. I believe I was 5, and I still remember how at that time, flying PR meant being served orange juice and ensaymada (Filipino brioche) on such a short flight. Now I'll be lucky to even be served the same way when flying longer flights such as MNL-CEB!

DC-7 from PHL to SFO via ORD in 1955 (about 7 years old). At Chicago we disembarked while the plane was serviced and we got box lunches; I don't know if we bought them or the airline gave them to us but I remember that there was an apple in it. At the time I felt disappointed taking United because the United airplane only had one tail and TWA's (Constellation) had 3. I still remember the very bumpy ride over the Rockies and my mom crying. We took the train back to Philly!

Sadly I doubt I will ever find out the registration and therefore marque of TriStar (as they had a couple).

I was 9 months old so I don't remember it at all, but it was March 20 1992, MAN-ORD on an AA 763.

My mum kept the boarding passes from that trip and gave them to me when I was 18. She said she evidently for-saw then that they would some day mean something to me. And I lost them

From various 'cross-referencing',

5 Dec 1993, QF 52 SIN-BNE B747SP.

Someone mentioned to me on this forum that it should be operated by VH-EAA since it was based in BNE. And the sad/unfortunate thing is that I have absolutely no memories about this flight.   All my parents remembered was that I was irritating all the economy passengers on board .

Hi

My first flight would probably be on my first birthday (21/03/98) when I was on a flight to Australia from London Heathow which was a BA B744, and then a couple days later i was on a QF B762 and went from SYD to PER and then back again. It was a BA B744 and apparently I hated all the flights! We went there to see family down there, but I wish I could remember it.  

Sorry to go off topic but would anyone know where i could obtain the reg of the flights i was on?? I have searched the internet but no records go back that far.

5 months old in late 1984. IB 747-200 MAD-BOG, but obviously don't remember a thing.

After that, I flew LH 747-200 BOG-CCS-FRA in Dec 1989. My best flight so far! I remember it vividly. I got a few toys from the crew, I spent about 4 hours in the cockpit (my mom thought I was lost!). I visited all of the plane! I even remember the smoking section at the back!

My first solo flight was in 1991, I was 7yo, and I flew from LHR (or perhaps LGW?) to FLR on my own on an AirUK prop.

My very first flight, which unfortunately I don't remember being only about a year old was on a BOAC Boeing stratocruiser,
LHR-SNN.

This is not the actual aircraft, but this would have been the colour scheme.

This is the actual aircraft, which I can hardly believe is in the database.

My first flight was in October 2003. I was 23 years old. It was RDU-ORD on an Air Wisconsin / United Express BAe 146.

If you want to make it the first trip by plane rather than just the first flight (which seems more meaningful to me since I was only connecting in ORD), that would be RDU-ORD-SEA on United / United Express. The first leg was of course already mentioned above, the second was a B757-200.

The thing I remember most was being completely confused about the consept of codesharing and "express" partners, and not being sure whether I was supposed to check in with United or Air Wisconsin. After all, the itinerary I got from Orbitz said something like "United flight XXXX is operated by AWAC dba United Express -- check in with operating carrier."

My first commercial flight by myself was on 2/26/1983 on an American Airlines 72S from MEM to DCA. I remember sitting in probably 7A (it was the third row of coach at the time). Seated ahead of me in 5 ABC ( the bulkhead row) were Bill and Hillary Clinton, along with their then young daughter Chelsea. This flight had originated in LIT, as at the time there were no nonstop flights to DCA from west of the Mississippi River. I recognized the then Governor Clinton as I boarded, so sometime mid-flight I walked up and spoke to him. He was extremely nice, and when he found out I was going to Washington on my own to attend a student leadership seminar, he told me how he had been on the same program in the 1960's and had met President Kennedy. The very graciously signed my notebook for me, which I have to this day, and therefore know the date. A very exciting trip for me!

Summer, 1953. Age 7. Capital Airlines DC-3 from Norfolk VA to RDU, via ECG and RMT. A birthday surprise from an uncle who had visited my military parents in ORF and he took me back with him to stay in our hometown for summer vacation. My ticket cost was $4 and change, and he reported back to my parents I seemed to enjoy the flight but that I vomited buckets, and that I got moved to a back row seat so the hostess could keep an eye on me. It was apparently too turbulent to serve, so she babysat me. I on the other hand was hooked on flying, barf bags and all. I begged my parents to let me fly back home, but alas I ended up in the family sedan.....a 1949 Hudson.
An auspicious start to a later-in-life career in aviation...........
