Exactly this day one year ago (3.9.00) I flew FRA-STR-FRA-ATH-FRA just for the fun of it. I spent the whole day in the Cockpit ot the Lufthansa A310-300 D-AIDF.
And on saturday I spent the day @ DUS with two A.net friends and there we checked the counters if any airline would sell us a ticket to leave within an hour so that we could arrive still the same day... No airline wanted to help us...so we couldn't fly.

When Easyjet began their services between Liverpool and Luton, I used to pay £20 to fly the return journey "just for the sake of it".

But I do arrange my holidays around the airline I am gong to fly with...like this year I had a choice between all the UK Charter airlines, and Virgin. Obviously I chose Virgin, not only because its a 744, but also because of the serviec, entertainment and reputation!

In 1996 when I was a senior in college I very nearly bought a 'spring-break' roundtrip ticket on Air France Concorde as a graduation present to myself, just to fly this plane (I'd return from Paris a day or two later). I booked the flight, but at the last minute I canceled. I decided I did not want to spend that major chunk of my hard-earned savings quite yet  Smile Maybe in a few years I'll do it.

OK, it's a pity I can't afford "flying days". But when I used to travel to Athens, Olympic was flying triangles: two days a week ATH-MAD-BCN-ATH, and two days the opposite way ATH-BCN-MAD-ATH. Whenever it was possible, I used to arrange my days so I was able to fly BCN-MAD-ATH (35mins+3hrs10+extra t/o & landing) instead of BCN-ATH (2hrs30) and back home ATH-MAD-BCN. The price was the same!!! Big grin

I forgot: next Christmas I'm going to Brazil, BCN-CDG then CDG-GRU on 777, GRU-SSA, and back SSA-GIG, then GIG-CDG on 340, CDG-BCN.

For a similar price I could fly BCN-LIS-SSA and back.

I don't have the money to fly whenever I feel like it but when I do fly I try to fine tune my itenerary to take more flights or get on specific types if my schedule allows it. For example, this weekend I could have flown AA CID-DFW-CID on ERJs, but instead I paid $10 more so that I could fly on TWA for the first time, go to STL for the first time, and tonight I'll hopefully fly on a 717 for the first time.

I do it as often as I can. In addition to job/holiday related traveling, I enjoy traveling to the airport, buying a ticket for somewhere I've never been, and leaving several hours later. I'm thinking about a trip to California in a month or so, and in just two weeks I'm flying BOS-LHR-BOS to give the triple 7 a try. Spontaneous flying is the best kind!

I once flew YYZ-YXU-YZR-YXU-YZR so I could try out a Convair 580. Loved it!

Check out our 'hop' from Denmark to Canada this past July:

SK D94 CPH-STN
US 333 LGW-PIT
US M82 PIT-EWR
B6 320 JFK-BUF
B6 320 BUF-JFK
(US Airways then shoved us in a taxi between EWR and PHL)!  Pissed
US 767 PHL-LHR
SK 738 STN-CPH

I have never actually done this but I have thought about it many times.  Smile Now with cheaper airfares in Australia it has become more affordable to fly interstate and back in the one day or next day 'just for the sake of it' (and to check out a new airport). When I fly I often arrange my itinerary so I can choose (or avoid) a particular type of aircraft, or one I haven't flown in before.  Smokin cool

It's good to try it for the sake of it. When I was commuting to Singapore this year it often cost less to go beyond so I went to Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong and was going to get to Japan, China and Bangkok but don't go to Singapore anymore.

I purposely flew on Qantas A300 VH-TAA once when I went to the Gold Coast in business class (they retired those aircraft that year).

I always used my wife's ID travel priveleges to the max.

I wanted to fly MD11 last year and went to BNE from SYD and took EVA to Taipei and on to Sanfrancisco and then Vancouver on Alaska. That was a long trip. Came back one stop via TPE to Sydney though!!!

Ok lets start.
When I was 9 years old I always asked my father to go to the downtown airport of Buenos Aires just to see the planes land and take off. And every day we went I always cried because of I could not be on the plane. One day, my father , bored of seeing crying me, bought two RT tickets to Rosario (ROS). 45 flying time just for give me a trip for present.
It was on a Bac 111 of ALA ( an old argentine airline) leased registered G AWGG.
We departed early in the mornig got a excellent breakfast!!! , we stayed 45 minutes of touraround of the plane there and then we came back to Buenos Aires in the same plane..Good experience and then started my relation with Aviation... It was on jan 18th 1969.
Times went on... In 1979 I joint Aerolineas Argentinas, and got my first free international pass in 1982..We can use our free passes for a year, and I used it for flying to ROM.
I depareted on saterday on AR160 EZE GIG FCO arrived at ROM at midday, Had lunch in Via Veneto and again in a rush to the airport and jumped in the same plane departin 10pm again to BUE......Just for not lose my first free international pass.
Then a lot of time jumped on a 737 for a ride to MDQ on Sundays just for flying...40 minutes...turnaround in the airport 30 minutes and again other 40 minutes flying....
Thks for the free passes!!!!

I did it once, about a while back I was looking in the America Way (AA's inflight mag) and I noticed between personal flights and deadheading flights for work I flew on ever aircraft AA and eagle owned except the 777 and the MD-11 so I decied one day to non-rev to DFW (I'm bases in ORD) and Catch the 1pm DFW-ORD flight which is a 777 (the one of the few domestic 777 flights AA does) it was a ball got to fly in first, and let me say a 777 is only loaded with about 50 people and not that much cargo is takes off like a rocket......

AA usually offers many last minute deals with a Sat stay. Many times first class under $400!

I too have gotten on last minute on the ORD-DFW 777 flight. Never more than half full and if you are lucky, you can pay coach and get a seat in business class.

Also, I will fly between BMI (Bloomington Il) and Atlanta on Airtran. They also have good deals without an advanced purchase and a good FF program. Sometimes I will find a connection out of Atlanta, and go further.

Rgds,

When I was in college, I knew a guy who did this all the time. He'd book a return ticket on a flight to a city, depart and arrive back the same day. I thought it was a big waste of money. However, maybe if I had money to spare, I might do the same, on an infrequent basis.

When I was in my final year of public school, I took my girlfriend (now wife), from BWI-BNA-PHX-LAX-PHX-BNA-BWI for lunch and to meet Dave Ralph (a popular DJ out there at the time) for lunch. We flew in an aging WN2H4, and owing to her abilities to talk to just about anyone, and my love for all kinds of aircraft (even airbus...well maybe, but only in the way a chevy owner would drive a ford over walking somewhere), I came home with a new job. One thing leeds to another, and whammo here I am. The moral of the story? It wasn't a waste of money

BA used to do a fare called the FunFlyer. It cost about£20 ,you had to turn up at LHR at 9:00am and they then told you where you were going-usually Amsterdam ,Paris or Frankfurt.They also told you what time( we flew at 4:00 in the afternoon) and you had to fly back on the return flight.
easy Jet do some good deals, someone mentioned £9 each way Luton to Liverpool , you can also get Amsterdam for about£25 each way.
The best deal I ever got was when my Aunt got me a seat on one of the route proving flights for the BAe 146.We flew from the old Hawker Siddley factory at Hatfield to the Airbus facility at Toulouse and back in an evening. Prototype 146 operated by British Air Ferries

thank god I am a non rev or I never would any flying just for the sake of flying. I've flown EWR-IAH-EWR one day just to fly on the 777 when CO first got them. I've also flown from EWR to many places in FL just to have go have lunch or just get away for the day. Most of my trips are just so I can fly. The things I do when I get there are usually just the excuse to be able to fly. Sure beats going to the mall around the corner to eat or shop...

Ayy of you's who can't aford to buy real tickets like me, just get a nice part time airline for an airline.

I love to fly for the heck of it! Thats the great thing of being a non-rev, if you get to bored at home one day, hop a flight to FLL or if I have time MDW and check out Chicago for the day! I have not had the chance to do that in a while though. I think when December comes around I want to head up to New York to see all the christmas sites and maybe some snow if I am lucky  Smile I have yet to see snow! Can you believe that!?

Three times in the past two years I have flown from PHX to ANC (via SEA or LAX) and back, a total distance of more than 5,000 miles, in less than 24 hours.

Another personal mark I have set is in flying 7 segments in one calendar day. This is one I will try to top some day if I can put together an intinerary that makes it possible.

My "joy rides" were possible becasue of my airline employee flight benefits. I will admit the trips I include in this category were mainly flying for the sake of the enjoyment of flying, but I was also motivated by the challenges of PHX-ANC-PHX in under 24 hours and as many segments as I could fly in one calendar day. These trips also allow me opportunities to familiarize myself with the "real world" of the airline I represent.

I have never actually done it, but i have thought about it. If i lived by a larger airport, i could do it alot, i quite often have £40-£50 to spare and that is enough for a return ticket to the Med or somewhere within 2 or 3 hours flying time.

Fun huh?

Currently planning BRS-CDG-QKR QKR-CDG-BRS, and its all free, whats more i get to fly Buisness class on the QKR-CDG sectors.

And its all free!!

I have done it just for the heck of it, and also to obtain miles in the FF program (UA) to maintain 1 K. I have done several times:

PHL-SFO-PHL (somtimes overnight)
PHL-IAD-LHR-IAD-PHL ( Generally one or two nigts in London).

when the us airways flight attendants didn't strike, the airline was offering double tier miles, and i jumped on that like ugly on a monkey. using my company american express card, which got me in trouble later, i booked an a4coach ticket chs-clt-sfo-clt-chs for the weekend.

this weekend, i saw a 119 ticket on us express from pit to msn. i had a friend working there over the weekend on business. i told him that i was coming into town and that i needed a place to stay. he was amused.

when i worked for big blue, i would quite often book a ticket for my biz travel, and once it was ticketed, call the airline and rearrange it so i could get more connections and miles, fly the aircraft i wanted, and stuff like that. it's fun.

one day, i told my boss that i was going to get out of the office early since i was flying to sfo for the weekend to visit a friend. he asked me if i was connecting in frankfurt. honestly, if i could have, i would.

That's something I really miss doing. I lost my flight benefits on Delta when I left ASA, so I'm really wanting to fly really bad, thank goodness I've got friends at several airlines that can hook me up with a buddy pass. My biggest fly for fun day was ATL-MCO (on a Delta 777) MCO-JFK (same 777) and JFK-ATL (on a 767-300 with BusinessElite setup). I also did ATL-PDX-ATL three times last year when Delta still flew the MD-11 on the route. I did a lot of daytrips to Boston and Washington D.C. in my time as well.

When I was working out in the bush I used to hop on the aircraft that belonged to the 135 carrier that was out there and fly to the small villages around.

But of course since I worked for a different airline I was non-rev and part of the deal was that I had to help unload the aircraft. So cost really wasn't an issue.

Do it all the time - especially on business trips. The best and cheapest are the taiwanese domestic flights. Loads of carriers and aircraft types to choose from. Single fares are about $35, or $50 for business class. Took FEAT 757 and TransAsia 321. The Rio-Sao shuttle is cheap and very regular. Took TAM, Vasp, Varig and Rio Sul, I think. Flew four Indian domestic routes, and domestic in Korea is cheap, too, though the choice is KAL or OZ, but good ways of flying A300s and 330s. Japan is fairly reasonable on the Tokyo-Osaka run, and they have lowered the fares, so yu can choose from A300s, M11s, 744s or 777s. Took the YS-11 for $50 return on one domestic service. Saudi domestic fares are cheap and managed a L10-11 and 737 flight before they were retired.

I would ne interested in any other cheap domestic markets as I am on the go all the time.

While i havent specifically flown just for the heck of it, many times i have rerouted and taken crazy routings just to fly on a certain aircraft type/airline.

i had to travel many times to BLR from my city (PNQ). the only eqpt on this route r A320's and 737's. can u believe for 3 years since i started flying regulalry i had NEVER got to fly a widebody. so for the heck of it, i once re-routed BLR-BOM(on a A300) and BOM-PNQ(A320). SInce then i have done that a zillion times! An added adv: since the flights arent connecting either way, there is a 3 hr wait at BOM, which gives plenty of time to do some plane spotting.
