Its something I do quite a lot of.
First time was in April 2004 PLH-BRS
-PLH just to try out Air Southwest and the DHC8-300, the irony was that I didn't think the service would last so wanted to fly it before it died, yet now its a route which I take every other week.
In August 2004 I did PLH-BRS
-PLH with Air Southwest and Ryanair just to fly on the B737-200, again ironic as I managed to get on 3 other 732's by 'accident' in the following 5 months!
July 2005 flew on the Iran Air B747-100 sightseeing flight, although that was not a return flight as such.
October 2005 MAD
on Iberia A340-300s, as part of the Mega MAD
December 2005 BHX
A320s, just to see Dublin and meet Ben, although we didn't actually manage to find each other till we got back to the airport in the evening, lol.
January 2006 BHX
738, another look at Dublin and do some research.
February 2006 BHX
; Had never been to Scotland before so decided to see what it was like and also get to try FlyBe and their DHC8-Q400/ BAe146-200.
February 2006 BHX
; booked well in advance, set me back only around £70 in total. On BMI
Baby B737-500, Easyjet B737-700, Air Berlin B737-700 and FlyBe BAe146-300 respectively.
Next one dayer will be tomorrow; PLH-BRS
-PLH, business though, not for pleasure, I could get the train non-stop up to Birmingham but the station is 6 miles from my house, and the airport only 1, which is a good enough excuse to fly half the way to Bristol then get on a train if you ask me
I also fly countless indirect routings, not always cheaper but I do just for the hell of it!;
. (to get the EI
one day I'm going to get to Plymouth from Birmingham by doing; BHX
-PLH on CO
and Air Southwest, again, just for the hell of it
Might get the picture that I like flying a bit too much
...love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...
