I gotta agree with Postman here. A lot of the middle class people I know in Singapore fly way more than the avg Americans I know.

Naturally, Singapore is a small island, it's citizens have a lot of disposable income and there are a lot of cheap flights.

And airfare is way cheaper, with more access to cheap countries.

In the U.S., you will most likely be flying to yet another American city, and generally, a much more expensive, yet interesting one.

Flying out of the U.S. is almost inconceivable unless you've seen most of the U.S., and its tiring, which takes a long time! I mean, most people including Americans pretty much need and want to see California, New York, etc. before taking that much further international flight to Mexico or somewhere.

In short, just completely different geography and situations.

Yeah most of the US is globally pretty isolated. Singapore is within a few hours flight of so many countries. If you live in say, Seattle, it's a 10 hour flight to get to the nearest country that isn't in North America.

I don't know, perhaps the people around me and those that i mix with are not middle class and above then..

I don't see my friends or relatives doing that a lot

Flight from Seattle to Eastcoast Russia, Northern half of Japan or Northern South America (Northern Peru/Ecuador/Colombia/Venezuela/Guyana/Suriname/Guiana) is still doable in 8-10 hours.
