How Many Times?

Mon Jul 30, 2001 9:03 pm

I would be interested - as a social and economical fact - to know how many times you flew on a plane vs the country were you live.

I think I did about 40 round trips (only) or less, mostly short flights, and I live in France (where the train is well developped).

Forget about your age, I'm just interested in average numbers.

But you must understand, NZ is spilt into two islands. You can nearlly drive the whole length of the north isl. in one day, the train system is terrible mostly for tourists, and the buses are for backpackers. So apart from driving flying is the only viable and quick way to get around. Hence it is cheaper to fly to BNE, have 5 nights accomodation in surfers paradise, with airport transfers etc.. then to book a 1.5 hr domestic flight at max fares due to necesity, and duo-opoly which until 5 months ago was the case, but has now changed. Look at Australia.

Sebolino,
I am living in France, and I have made:
- 1 round trip CDG- Tahiti
- about 10 inter island round trips in French Polynesia
- 1 round trip Papeete- Easter Island- Santiago
- 1 round trip from France to Chile
- 2 one way domestic flts in Chile
- Since 1997, an average of 10 round trips/year to various countries in Europe and Middle East (these flts are for business only)

Nana....
