Both of my interesting routings were on frequent flier tickets, so I would expect a more round-about way than normal. I went to BIS
last July and ended up flying ATL
on Continental, then IAH
on Northwest. The return was BIS
on Northwest and EWR
on Continental. Both routings were about 900 miles out of the way. Over this last new year, I went to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to go skiing. The outbound trip was not too unusual. I flew ATL
on Delta. The return trip was, however, a bit strange. I left JAC
around six o'clock in the evening, flew to SLC
, then on to LAS
, then did a redeye flight from LAS
, which was a thoroughly miserable experience because the passengers nearby were extremely loud, all the people in the row in front of me had their seats fully reclined (I know they paid for the right to recline, but I find it to be rude to recline all the way because it restricts the person behind's space so much, thus I never recline a lot.), and the plane was extremely hot. I don't want to sound like I'm complaining though.
Delta was fine and the flights as a whole were good.
