Just outta boredom and curiousity. Where are you all going on holiday this year if any? Anywhere exotic, and what airlines you using to get there?

Here's mine:

18th June 2005
BA 2931 EDI - LGW Boeing 733

Then on to Southampton to catch Legend of The Seas for a med cruise.

Coming back:

2nd July 2005
BA 2942 LGW - EDI Boeing 734

Boring aircraft but at least i get to fly on my birthday  Big grin

How about you all?

Have great holidays/vacations in advance!

Niagara Falls, Ontario by car, which, if you can believe it, I prefer to flying! To paraphrase Groucho, I wouldn't fly in any airplane that would have me at the controls. But I love long distance driving.

In September we plan to fly to Vancouver, most likely on an AC A319/20/21.

My upcoming summer vacations:

June 24th
Seattle, WA.
Flying United Express/United. MDT-ORD-SEA
ERJ-145 MDT-ORD, B757-200 ORD-SEA

Same in reverse

Touring Boeing Factory in Everett, Museum of Flight at BFI, and all the usual sights in Seattle.

Other than trips to the beach, Ocean City MD, Rehobeth Beach Del, the Seattle trip is my only scheduled flying holiday.


My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

My In-Laws rent a condo on the beach, and they, my family, and my brother-in-laws family all go for a week. Because of my work, I just stay for an odd day or two.

So my vacation, is the fact I have the whole house and pool to myself for a week!

On July 11-15 I am flying jetBlue from JFK-FLL-JFK.

I am glad to go down to Florida, but it is so hot in NYC (In the mid 80's today) I can only wonder what South FLorida is like. I am going to my grandparents house (alone!) and I get to go to Golf Camp down there!

Can't wait.

I'm spending a week in South Africa, and I'm leaving tomorrow - flying SAA (A340-600, B737-800) to Cape Town via Johannesburg, and Thursday next week I'll be flying the same route back, that time on an A319 and A340-600.

Might also make one or two other trips this year - but haven't fixed any of those yet.

Mmm - CPT in winter, that'll be fun ! Take something waterproof  Smile

Haven't decided yet. Either go to DEN in August, or take a gulet cruise from Antalya in Turkey - or maybe go to Libya to see Leptis Magna.

Decisions, decisions.

I am just going to have a quite week in Tahiti prob in Sept/Oct time.

I am going to Coffs Harbour next week, but that doesnt really count as it is a mileage run, and only staying over night.

Going to SEA in September (still don't know the exact dates). Will most probably be flying QF, ADL-SYD-LAX-SEA, the same route back. Looking forward to that Big grin

Also, going to New Zealand next month (just for 5 days, to AKL, visiting friends). Will be flying QF B738 to SYD then a 763 to AKL I guess....

Early plans for our summer holidays will see us leave SYD on 27/28 Dec for VIE, most likely flying QF(B743) to NRT then SK Business class to CPH(A343) & VIE(MD87?). Then a 10 day bus tour to BUD, PRG, WAW, Berlin, MUC & back to VIE. Then off to VCE & the Vento, most likley by train, for 10 days to visit wifes relatives, then to MXP to CPH SK (MD87?), then SK (A343) to NRT, a coupla days in Toyko, then home on QF (B743) about 23 Jan for back to work on 27 Jan.

Routing may change but SKs mixed class fare looks like it will win again!

Tomorrow !!!

To NYC with my partner and two friends. Will be flying AA 777-200 LHR-JFK and return.

Still planning our holidays for later in the year. Maybe to Cyprus when we get the bathroom re-built (with a quick trip to Egypt on the boat from Limassol?).

Possibly LA to visit friends at the end of the year and perhaps drive up the coast to San Fran.

More likely is that I will tack a few days leisure on to my long delayed work trip to South Africa next month (it was going to be March, then April, etc, etc). As it seems work will take me to JNB, CPT and DUR, it'd be rude not to see afew things while I'm there. Also the clinet loves me lots and wants to arrange loads of leisure trips for me  Smile
If so it'll be a SAA 747-400 out of LHR and then various SAA A320s/737s between the cities once there I guess.

Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

Living in Milan, I'm very close to the Mediterranean where our family has a small summer flat, so we go there most weekends. There is no reason to fly although it would be possible I guess, but it would mean flying into Nice and driving or training back to our place in Italy, back over the border. That would be silly, so we just drive. It takes three or four hours depending on traffic.

Coffs Harbour on a mileage run. I could think of better things to do.

As it is winter in the southern hermisphere, I am going snowboarding from 14 August to 19 August in Victoria. Flying Qantas.

September 30 flying Air NZ to the USA and return Oct 17.
The US trip will include Florida, St Louis and Las Vegas, maybe Washington DC.

Why fly non stop when you can connect
