Most Wacky Itinerary

Wed Mar 10, 2004 10:16 am

Just wondering what your weirdest itinerary has been. I am going to visit my family outside of PAH, and instead of flying MSP-MEM-PAH with NW, I'll do the whole thing on XJ.

This means:
MSP-ASE
ASE-MEM
MEM-PAH
and back,
PAH-MEM
MEM-STL
STL-MSP

Going to Aspen on my way from MSP to MEM, must be one of the longest detours you can make on the XJ routes  Big grin

And also, this summer, I might do this on CO:

MSP-IAH
IAH-EWR
EWR-OSL

I wanna try the 777, so instead of going straight MSP-EWR in an ERJ or 735, I'll go through IAH and get a 777 on the IAH-EWR leg.

Im not sure if this gets the record for layovers, but for duration I think it gets first place!  Smile

CLD-LAX (35 MIN, UA, EMB-120)
LAX-SIN (18 1/2 HRS, SQ, A340-500)
SIN-MLE (3 1/2 HRS, SQ, B772)
Round Trip

Time = 22 HRS, 35 MIN + 4 HR layover in LAX, 2 HR in SIN

Grand Total Time = 28 Hours, 35 Minites one way.

Last year, on a QF FF reward freebie from DRW to ADL, the web site threw up this routing: DRW-CNS-ASP-ADL leaving DRW at 0610 arr. ADL 1500 or so, if I remember correctly. All different flt. nos. & a/c. Had enough time in CNS to grab a taxi and have a real breakfast on the Esplanande, on a beautiful morning.

Not a quick trip, but also not a bad way to spend most of a day, either! And, through all this my bag turned up in ADL when I did.

A few years ago from FAI-MDW

FAI-ANC-SEA-PDX Alaska
PDX-DEN-MDW Frontier
It took something like 18 hours.

I was supposed to fly the same route back skipping ANC but due to flight delays it went like:

MDW-MSP-PDX Northwest (shoulda been Frontier via DEN)
PDX-SEA-FAI Alaska
That took about 26 hours.

The wacky thing was that this was the summer that AS started its nonstop between ORD and ANC and I could have flown with them.

I think I got you all beat. PHX-ORD-MCI-DFW-SNA-JFK on AA. I left PHX at 7:35 AM and arrived at NYC / Kennedy at 5:11 AM. East to go south to go south west to go west to go east. None of you went within 740 miles of your target airport, then ended up over 2400 from it crossing over your origin in the process!

I remember one time looking up LGA-IAH information on Expedia, and they came up with the following ingenious routing for me on US Airways (well, they advertised it as US Airways):

LGA-DCA-MSY-DFW-IAH-DFW-MSY-DCA-LGA

(note: MSY-DFW-IAH-DFW-MSY operated by Delta Connection/Atlantic Southeast Airlines)

Needless to say, I instead waited another month, and saved 60 bucks by instead flying LGA-ORD-IAH-ORD-LGA on United, and also got two more free tickets, tickets to be used on two more trips with identical itineraries...certainly worth the wait (both for waiting to book travel, and for waiting 8 hours one way, 6 hours the other in ORD)

NW PHX-DTW
NW DTW-BHM
NW BHM-MEM
CO MEM-IAH

Return:
NW IAH-DTW
NW DTW-IND
NW IND-MSP
NW MSP-PHX

I just remembered I was helping a friend find flights from the DC area to RDU and this is what Expedia yielded:

BWI-PHL-IAD-RDU

That cost $209 roundtrip while just the last flight IAD-RDU was $350 round trip. Now that is something I just don't understand. Why would adding on two extra flights cost less than just the one flight?

General aviation in a 152 - ACT(waco,TX)-SEP(stephenville,TX)-ABI(abilene,TX)-LBB(lubbock,TX)-AMA(amarillo,TX) and back direct AMA-ACT!! due to extremely strong westerly winds aloft, needed plenty of fuel to spare.

Airlines: soon a Southwest flight DAL(dallas)-AMA(amarillo)-ABQ(albuquerque sunport)-PHX(pheonix sky harbor) then the same route back! Stops always mean a lot of time at the airport AND in the air!

I was using the Sabre booking system to get a flight from TXL to FRA (270 miles), and when it listed the search results, there were a lot of flights within the normal price range, and then there was one that was a couple of thousand dollars. Curiosity got the better of me and I looked at the details, to go from TXL to FRA I would have gone TXL-LHR-BKK-SYD-SIN-FRA ... 21,508 miles!!  Wow!

Needless to say, I did not book this itinerary.

This only involved 1 flight but combined with other modes of transportation, it was my worst and most tiring journey ever :-

ITH-NYC Shortline bus, 5 hours
NYC-BOS Peter Pan bus, 3 hours
BOS-LHR British Airways, 6.5 hours
LHR-SOU British Railway, 1.5 hours
SOU-ACI Channel Islands Ferry, 3 hours

Not including waiting time at bus stations, airports, rail station & ferry port. The whole journey took more than 24 hours.

In 1995 I did

KRP - CPH on SK
CPH - AMS on DM
SPL - MSP on KL
MSP - LGA on NW

That was one long trip. Usually I go KRP-CPH-EWR it is a flight
time of about 9 hours plus the wait in CPH about 1 hour.

The best one I ever pulled was my vacation last summer using Star Alliance FF miles:

Before the bombing in Jakarta, I was going to go to Bali with the following routing:
CAE - IAD -UAX
IAD - FRA -LH
FRA - BKK - TG
BKK - DPS - TG - I think it might have been 30 something hours?

A couple of days later:
DPS - SIN -SQ

A couple of days later coming home:
SIN - MAN -SQ
MAN - IAD -BMI
IAD - CAE -UAX


What I actually ended up doing:
CAE - IAD -UAX
IAD - CDG -UAL
CDG - BKK -TG

A couple of days later:
BKK - SIN -SQ

And returning home:
SIN - CDG -SQ
CDG - ORD -UAL
ORD - CAE - UAX

I will never, ever CONNECT in CDG again. EVER. However, I will one day visit Paris.

Domestically, I was late booking a trip home from my client in PA over the holiday season a couple of years ago, and ended up flying from MDT - CAE via:
MDT - IAD - CVG - CAE, whereas it was usually just MDT - IAD - CAE. Orbitz found me that routing, which was all that was available at the time.

Some of you guys have me beat, but mine certainly seemed a lot more complicated while I was doing it!

Expedia is notorious for throwing people around the country and in turn it may only save them a few dollars.
I have seen several routings out of Florida that use RDU as a connecting point on DL.
Some are sensible being the time of year or day of week it is as flights to the Northeast can be full at times, but I have seen these on more than one occasion.
FL city - ATL-RDU-BOS
FL city - ATL-RDU-LGA
FL city - ATL-RDU-LGA- final destination (ie MHT).
FL city - ATL-RDU-BOS- final destination (ie BTV).

THE BEST THOUGH is a routing to AVL that Expedia does.
FL city - ATL-RDU-CVG-AVL
I have even seen this one turn the trip into a layover in RDU and not break the fare, for instance arrive RDU at 11:30pm and depart for CVG at 6:00am.

As wacky as these are it is amazing that the passenger still chooses these options.
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

Booked this as one itinerary on purpose (must be an airline enthusiast), all flights left and departed on the same day, last Saturday, 3/6/04.

MNL-HKG - CX 905 (wanted to see HKG airport, and visit Cathay's Pier and Wing Lounges)
HKG-TPE - CX 450 (Heard from an FA that the CX lounge had great beef noodles)
TPE-Narita - CX 450 (needed to connect to AA for some FF bonus miles)
Narita-DFW - AA 60 (first trip to Terminal C Admirals Club)
DFW-ELP - AA 1373 (headed home)

Total Flight Time: 26:45
Thank Goodness they were all in Business Class.

A couple of years ago I needed to get from SJC to BUR just one way. It was near-last minute, so Southwest wanted $107 with tax. Playing around (and I could leave the night before) I found an AA open-jaw fare:

SJC-ORD-BWI (5 hours in BWI) BWI-DFW-BUR for $212.

Obviously, if I couldn't have left the day before it wouldn't have worked, but it was a pretty good deal  Smile BWI has a 24 hour Burger King and some comfy couches right near it for hanging out that made it pretty decent.

My most wacky route was from SYD to YEG- I booked more or less at the last possible second so my itnerary was as follows:

SYD-AKL with AirNZ 747-200
AKL-NAN NZ 742
NAN-HNL NZ 742
HNL-LAX NZ 742
Overnight at LAX and then:
LAX-MSP NW DC-10
MSP-YEG DC-9

I departed Sydney on June 5th 1995 around 12:00 in the afternoon, arrived in Edmonton on June 6th at 11:00 at night. And it was actually TWO days, since we crossed the international dateline and went one day "backwards" so it was equivalent to arriving on June 7th.
