Way under 85. I'd have to go find my list but I'd say it would be around 40. I should count how many times I've been in each particular airport. LAX would definitely win.

I also have a list of the airports with, IMO, the best food. Big Bear Lake, CA is currently winning.

Many of mine were shorter flights, but I have about 550,000.

Well I have 89,000 miles with American Airlines. And my flight memory says 198,000. Thats only since 1997 but I am only 21 years old so I am going to guess 220,000 miles.

I grew up as an airport brat, my dad had first a Bonanza and then several 310 Cessnas. Then we flew commercial from Portland to Hawaii every year and back east at least once a year mostly in the "family plane". Then there were other trips around the country. Then I took a year off and went around the world, been to Tahiti twice, down to mexico countless times...so I have nooo clue.

Probably >500,000. Most of that was as a pilot of small planes, and almost all of it was personal, pleasure flying -- vacations and weekend getaways.

Some 20+ times US to Europe, many trips inside the US, few trips Central Europe to south and far east Russia, 3 trips Central Europe to North Africa, numerous trips inside Europe ... to much to count

Check out this link, there are 10m milers out there (there are ways to "cheat" on these miles by getting ff miles from credit cards usage and special bonuses, etc, the article hints at it...I suspect that is the only way some of these guys got up to that mark).

If I added in all the miles I've "earned" from credit card use, hotel stays, sending flowers, etc., I'd be over 2M! Too bad they don't actually count towards elite status...
