Well, I guess one of these two flights would probably be the craziest for me (the "/" represents destinations at which I spent more than 24 hours along the route):
HAJ- CPH- EWR- IAD- ORD- MSP- DEN- SEA- PDX- SFO/SFO- LAX- LAS- DEN- ORD- MIA- FRA- HAJ on SK, SA)">UA and LH
HAJ- LHR- IAD- DEN- SFO- LAX-LIH/LIH- SFO- FRA- HAJ on BD, SA)">UA and LH (yes, the return was quite direct)
Then again, this one was a bit strange as well...
HAJ- FRA- HRE-MUB-BBK/VFA- JNB- DUR/DUR- JNB- CPT/CPT- JNB-VFA- HRE- FRA- HAJ on LH, UM, BP, SA, BV and BA.
Smile - it confuses people!

Well, I haven't flown this route, but when I was looking to book my trip to Seattle I checked into
CO from MDT (Harrisburg Int'l).
CO would have flown from MDT to Albany NY. Then to EWR. From EWR to CLE to IAH to SEA.
For all that I would have expected the price to be at least competative.
That's why I'm flying UA. MDT- ORD- SEA.
My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

A few times, to save money, I've flown
CLE- DTW- ABE. Basically flew right back over CLE. On the way back I almost always make the "someone give me a parachute" joke.
The itinerary bit me in the a** one time, though, when there was a line of severe thunderstorms just hitting DTW at landing... and of course then they had to move s-l-o-w-l-y eastward until they passed CLE before my connecting flight could depart (it's only a 20 min flight DTW- CLE.)
Up, up and away!

When I worked at Skywest, I set out one day to just fly as much as I could in one day.
LAS- SBA- LAX- SNA- LAX- IPL- LAX- SAN- LAX- LAS.
All were Metro aircraft except for the LAX- SAN- LAX.
A few months later, I tried it again, going:
LAS- SBA- LAX- SAN- BUR- SAN- BUR- PSP- LAS.

Non revved PIA-
SUX- DEN in the 70's on Ozark. Got bumped in SUX flew to DSM. Then ORD. Off to ALO, finally on to DEN. Left at like 7am got to DEN around 8 or 9.
I was just a kid and remember lots of the airports. There may have been a stop or two I forgot about. But those were the airports where we disembarked.
Next Up: STL-OMA-STL. Just a day trip and one more state off my list.

When I worked at
BUF, to avoid the full flights from the west coast, I flew
BUF- ORD- NRT- HNL
It was a long day, but well worth it (first class the whole way!)

I was trying to book a flight from London (any airport) to Strasbourg. Air France was the only airline operating to Strasbourg and their website suggested flying from
LHR- MAD- CDG and then Strasbourg - three changes of aircraft and a total flying time of 7.5 hours! Now why exactly would I need to go halfway round Europe for this relatively short journey?

ORD to LHR via SFO once. Hardly crazy when compared to the above...
