It seems some how a stupid thing to do, but i was wondering, after flying your roud trip, I put the tickets in a big photo album, a ring binder type.. as well as the boarding passes, ITs interesting, i mean after few years technology might change, boarding passes and tickets might be different. plus its nice to remember the places you have been to.
right now i have more than 20 tickets and boarding passes for each single flight i have flown in the last 4 years on different airlines including domestic flights in USA..

Actually it doesn't seem stupid at all. I do the same thing. Well, back when I used to fly with paper tickets anyway. Now, I save all my boarding passes and stuff them into my desk drawer with the intention of eventually organizing them into some kind of meaningful order. Since the dates are printed on the passes however, I tend to keep putting them off. But yes, I can see myself having fun looking at them years from now. Although I wish I had a flight log book to go with those boarding passes. It would make the experience more complete.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

I have kept my QF and AN boarding passes and e-tickets, mainly since I joined FF a few years ago. I also have everything from my international travels.
I have a quite a few [precious] Ansett ones, including my last Ansett A320 flight on 29 May 2001. The domestic flight ones I keep in a folder with other receipts and things, and the international ones are in a separate book.

I have all my tickets from 1976 to now. Most are boxed up out in the garage. Lots of EA & TW, some PA,BN & other fallen flags. Its fun to pull a few out and look at routes cost years/decades ago. When I have calculated it, air travel(per mile) is not much more now than in the late 70's/early 80's on discount fares. When you figure inflation over 20 yrs, even at 3%, air travel is even more of a bargin today than before.

I have a (very) large box with all my tickets since 1966 and some, but sadly not all, for the period 1959-1965. About 1300+ tickets. The older ones were very colourful in contrast to today's boring computerised e-tickets. In addition I log all my flights including a/c type, registration and actual flight time (not block time).
