Nice...I thought I was going to hear that you flew SOU-LGW or something on a prop and that was 58.011 miles.
Sounds like you were in the air quite a lot, hopefully you had some nice C class segments. What sort of aircraft does AV fly on MIA-MDE? 757 or something? How was the cockpit visit, did you snap any photos?
Incidentally, your routing from MDE to IND (via MIA, LAS and ORD) seems pretty long winded to get to Indianapolis - are you stopping in Vegas en route or something?
Enjoy your time on terra firma! Traveling is nice, but it can be tiring.
Yes, they use 757´s on that route. On Southamerica routes they use 767-200 and 300´s

Sorry, no pics, but the experience was really nice, not to much to see because of the bad weather, but just looking at the instruments is very fun.

Yes, sorry for that....the trip includes 3 nights in Las Vegas....I think will be very good
Quoting Mptpa (Reply 2): I have a massive trip coming in July TPA-ATL-DTW-EWR-ARN-KUL-SYD-CNS-AKL-ICN-CDG-YUL-ATL-TPA over a 18 day period. This one I am looking forward to it as it is pure pleasure: vacation with my wife!!!!
