Always domestic, never flown International. In fact, only Intl location I have gone is SW BC. Vancouver, Abbotsford,etc. Really did like the Vancouver Airport, though. Mix of big heavies and floatplanes. Fav is the South Terminal.

I might venture to Tijuana for to witness some sort of donkeys, but that is a different story.

Never flown domestic. There are few flights as the country is small.

I mostly fly international nowadays--between the US and the UK.

I attend King's College London, so it's necessary for me to travel between FWA and LHR/LGW every year (go home during the summer, return in September for the new school year). This year I went home for Christmas as well.

I have travelled internationally on AA, UA, EI, BD, US, and most recently (for Christmas this year), DL. I always depart from FWA (my home airport). I use LGW far more often than LHR, and I favor LGW over LHR for my flights (cheaper, smaller, less congested, better atmosphere, better views, etc).

Two-three years ago it was nearly 100% domestic US with a smattering of Canada flights and one or two flights to Bangkok each year.

Last year the domestic flying dropped very significantly but the Int'l flying picked up - five trips to Bangkok from the US in 14 months.

Now that I'm living in Bangkok, it is pretty much strictly international flying, with trips to the US, Korea, and Singapore in the past three months.

My flying is almost exclusively on Star Alliance, as I'm a UA 1K (or will be for at least the rest of 2006; don't know if I'll be able to fly enough to keep it this year). Preferences are UA (mostly because of the friends I know who fly for them and the upgrades) and TG and SQ for service.

Had a very good trip to Korea on KE, so would consider them in the future.

Last year, it was almost all international.

I only visited three states outside of Texas. A weekend in Missouri & New York + New Jersey (only EWR to Manhattan). Airports: DFW, DAL, IAH, HOU, STL, EWR, LGA

CO is very good for both.

Almost exclusively international. Britain is generally too small to fly around. Having said that I have used BD from LHR to MAN a couple of times, LHR to GLA and LHR to LBA (these were for work)

I fly alot internationally, as travelling is my absolute favourite hobby...

You're right... I have flown domestic in that sense.

There are no domestic airline flights in Belgium, is that right? Did they ever exist in modern times?
In the Netherlands there are now only AMS to Maastricht flights I think.
