    Cool Year In Review Non-Rev Trip Stats

    As non-revs we deal with a unique set of travel “variables”, so instead of total miles flown or longest/shortest flight of the past year. I thought why not list uniquely non-rev stats.
    So, think back over the last year and share some of you own interesting statistics

    Gate Check Carry-On Bag 60% (100% on flights out of TUS)

    Running 70%
    ….between terminals/gates
    ….because of non-working walkways and trains
    ….to make my plan B/C
    ….to make a shuttle
    ….across the tarmac because it’s LGB, it’s raining and I don’t have an umbrella *wink*
    ….because my home airport is LAX which is undergoing improvements which often resulted in traffic jams on Century which forced me to get out of my Lyft ride and hustle the last mile.
    Non-Rev Rule 2B- Always dress to run.

    Swimming upstream to get my bag that was stuffed in an overhead 10+ rows behind me so I could make my connection. 25%

    Carry-on in an overhead within four rows of my seat. 20%

    Trips requiring a non-fight option because some flights go from green to red faster than a wildcat going for a loose football. Donna nods acknowledging the reference). 33%

    Time in air – Never enough


    Note: Guessing does surprisingly well when determining percentages

    Added bonus, they're also good running shoes.

    Yes, I 100% of the time prefer the non-fight option.

    As for my stats, 25% thinking I'd be smart by taking a connecting flight which seemed more open when if I had waited around for the non-stop, I would have saved myself much misery... and would have been more comfortable in First!

    Uh-huh I have one of those, LAX/MSY, my connection option DFW. That's right DFW, where you never run out of things that can go wrong.

    The hurried running is so funny to me when I look back at it. I feel so trollish as I stomp from one terminal to the next while my whole body is sweating buckets, hair sticking to my face and all.
