18. STN-LAS (MaxJet 767-200 - Feb. 2007)

Could we expect a TR?

I have lost count on how many crossings at this point but since 1986 it might be over 30. Some of those carriers: TK, AF, KL, BA, EI, OS, NW..

Twice (three times if you count EWR-SIN), but those two were BA SEA-LHR-SEA and CO EWR-OSL-EWR. Here's to hoping for more hops across the pond!

I never thought I'd win one of these, lol. I was born in 1987 and since then, I've crossed the Atlantic 50 times. After March 10th of 2007, it will be 52. That's an average of 2.6 times a year! That's the good thing about having family in Switzerland and Greece, and there being very few non-stop options to ATH (and very few cheap ones).

Here are my routes, (number of times flown), (airline used), (aircraft), (total miles).

JFK-GVA, (13x), (Swissair, Swiss), (743, MD-11, 332), (50,219 miles).
GVA-JFK, (15x), (Swissair, Swiss), (743, MD-11, 332), (57,945 miles).
JFK-ATH, (6x), (TWA, Delta), (741, 762, 763, MD-11), (29,646 miles).
ATH-JFK, (7x), (TWA, Delta), (741, 762, 763), (34,587 miles).
JFK-ZRH, (2x), (Swissair, Swiss), (MD-11, 332), (7,862 miles).
JFK-VIE, (1x), (Austrian), (343), (4,240 miles).
BRU-JFK, (1x), (Sabena), (333), (3,667 miles).
EWR-FRA, (1x), (Lufthansa), (744), (3,869 miles).
FRA-EWR, (1x), (Lufthansa), (744), (3,869 miles).
EWR-LHR, (1x), (Virgin Atlantic), (346), (3,465 miles).
LHR-EWR, (1x), (Virgin Atlantic), (744), (3,465 miles).
EWR-WAW, (1x), (LOT Polish), (762), (4,278 miles).

Nine airlines.
Ten airports.
207,112 miles across the Atlantic.

Didn't know that this was a contest ...  Wink

In that case, since I've flown 52 round-trips over the Atlantic,that would equal 104 actual times over the Atlantic, diveded by my age, equals an average of 3 times per year.  Big grin  Wink

I have no idea . . . first time as in 1999 on a World Airways DC-10 CHS-FRA (US Mil charter) . . . after that, a couple dozen times, including a Concorde Westbound in 1982. Last time was in 2001 on a USAF C-130 . . . I know -that really sucked - but the wife was driving and the price was right, and I got to spend Christmas with her in Germany . . . .

Other trips include:

TW 747
LH747
BA747


Who know . . . way too many to count.

RE: How Many Times Have You Crossed The Atlantic?

Fri Jan 12, 2007 6:36 am

I've done about 60 segments so far, maybe more. That would put me in lead position right now Big grin. Since 1990, I have counted 52 and I have probably flown another 8 to 10 before that.

Airlines:
AA (763)
AF (744,772)
BA (741,744)
CO (762,764)
DL (313,M11)
KL (742,744)
LX (332,343)
NW (333)
PA (L10 or D10)
SR (313,332,743,D10,M11)
UA (772)
I also flew CP and Wardair but don't know the types.

Not quite ....

Quoting ACDC8 (Reply 16):
In that case, since I've flown 52 round-trips over the Atlantic,that would equal 104 actual times over the Atlantic,

I've got 6

EWR-CDG (CO 777-200ER)
SNN-EWR (CO 757-200)

EWR-FCO (AZ 777-200ER)
MXP-EWR (AZ 767-300ER)

EWR-ARN (CO 757-200)
CPH-EWR (CO 757-200)

So far my favorite was my flight to CDG- because it was my first transatlantic flight, and it was on Continental's premium flagship product. I love flying transatlantic to experience some of the shortest nights and most awful jet lag upon arrival.

Last time was in 2001 on a USAF C-130 . . . I know -that really sucked

How long did that flight take? Sounds like quite an experience!

Eastbound, non-stop

Westbound, RON in the Azores. higly recommended .. the Azores. beautiful place. Wonderous place.

Upon departure from the Lagez, my wife and I had a short convo . . . after we were all set she'd come down into the cargo area and have lunch with me. Two hours later, she hadn't shown, three hours . . . no show.

I stuck my head into the flight deck. There were maps, slide rules, laptops everywhere!

Apparently the winds aloft were more than anticipated . . . we were already bingo fuel for a return to the Azores, and we are now searching for an alternate in the middle of the Atlantic Since winds prvented St. John's and Gander was below mins . . . an error on the lead ship's Navigator's calculations . . . we turn rght, more or less and RON in Shannon for the next leg. Then on to Newfoundland and into Pope AFB the next day. Quite a ride I must say,but, again, the price was right. But no in light movie, no booze ** and no F seats.

*What sucked was a couple hundred gallons of Euro-Booze strapped to the rear ramp from our time there . . . couldn't crack it tho  cry 

At least I can check that block, been there, done that.

Twenty five times up to 2004, not flying anymore due to medical complications, but hope that in 2008 the Doc will let me do 5-6 hour trips again. I miss the trill of getting on the "bird" and feeling the power off the take off trust and the landings

Might be, but for some of us who have lived and worked on both sides of the pond for a certain number of years, having family on both sides of the pond, flying Trans-Atlantic 3,4, or even more times a year is very realistic.

Your a good 15 years my senior, wasn't referring to you. Since my folks have also worked overseas for a good amount of time, I can see you being over there often.

I have parents living in Switzerland (just read my trip reports) and an entire side of the family in Italy and another side in the States. I lived there with them for 15 years but being originally from the US means I travel quite a bit back and forth. Now that I have been studying in Florida for five years, I have gone back to Europe quite a few times to visit. The flights rack up pretty quickly. Also, I have been travelling to/from Europe since my early childhood due to my family situation. Thus, crossing the Atlantic 2-4 times per year (or 1-2 roudtrips) is not unreasonable.  Smile
