Ha, SRQKEF, "only" 247+14 flights at 15! I'm a year older and only have 50 flights on my FD... (http://flightdiary.net/jiggyb2). I think the distance flown makes up for it; My family sort of likes distant holidays! How have you managed to get on so many flights!?
Hehe, well my dad is a former executive at Icelandair (now works as an aircraft lessor) so I get alot of flights on them. Actually, over 50% of my flights have been aboard FI. Hoping to reduce that percentage as I want to try new airlines but still, FI will always be my favorite airline as on my 130+ flights I've never had a bad experience.
Also, driving on vacations other than domestic isn't possible as we Icelanders are way out in sea and not close to any country. You in Britain can just cross a tunnel and you're in mainland Europe.
EDIT: Maybe to answer your original question, if I compare myself to all other flyightmemory users, I can see the following max values:
Number of flights: 11'976
Distance: 19.7m kms
Duration: 25'822 hrs
Not sure if all three values are from the same person, but amazingly these are 3 years airborne time!
For the time being, I have 7 flights booked :
CDG-LIS on May, 28th (Air France)
LIS-CDG on May, 31st (Air France)
CDG-LIN-CDG on June, 3rd (Air France)
CDG-IAD on July, 6th (Air France)
RDU-LAX on July, 21st (Delta)
LAX-CDG on July, 29th (Air France)

Unfortunately I haven't been able to fly a lot since I started logging my flights at age 16. I tried figuring out all +/- 100 flights before then, but it was a hopeless mission. So I decided it would be better to have a complete record from my 16th birthday on in stead of having bits and pieces of my previous flights mixed in their as well.

3,807 flights as of today. About half of them as cabin crew I guess, flying lots and lots of LH A320s, 747s, A330. My passenger flights are much more fun to look at in the logbook...
And able to add, very much to my delight, that flight number 3,805, just two days ago, was on a Boeing 737-200 that was virtually falling apart...

I'm about to leave tonight on an 11 sector trip tonight, taking 2013 up to 40 leisure flights in 6 months since January.
81,431mi/131,051km so far. I anticipate another 20-25 flights worth another 40000km before the year is through, but I haven't booked yet.
Total mileage is in another post previously posted. It's probably just as well that I don't travel for anything more than amusement/vacation.

For some reason I didn't start logging my flights until 2011, so I have "only" 396 so far, with another 50+ planned between now and the end of the year (I get to set my schedule ahead several months, but changes do happen of course).
