Mileage runs with the most AC visits?

Ran the SJC/CLT route, thru SEA-ORD-CLT-DFW-SNA this weekend. I tried booking through as many airports with AC's, for first time visits. Sorry to say, I only made 3 out of 5 possible. Skipped SJC because SJC-SEA was on AS metal, which is always delayed in the evenings. SNA was closed early(!) on Saturday afternoon, but I've been there. For the other clubs, here's my take:

Seattle, by far had the best staff, and they were very friendly and personable as reported. Unfortunately, I didn't see anything from the bar's windows, this late at night. The SEA folks are having a hard time convincing skeptical folks you can now take the shuttle from C to A. Otherwise it's a brisk 15 min. walk.

The size of ORD fits the scale of O'Hare, it's simply huge. Windows overlooking the entire airport go around the whole place. I was trying to imagine the place getting filled around late travel season, almost no early birds with me on Saturday morning.

Due to a gate change, I managed to only visit DFW C. True to AA's welcome to military people on leave, there were quite a few service members both in and out of uniform. It's refreshing to see AA is still looking after them, which makes all the FT whining about missing pats of butter all the more insignificant.

Has anyone scheduled their runs, mindful of how many AC's they're passing through? I know one of next year's goals is trying to visit them all domestically. Well, except for MIA

In june I did a MR, and in 24 hrs went to these clubs: AUS (Three times), DFW A, DFW C (3 times), ORD H/K (twice), SAN, STL.

If AA tracks a member's visits, I'll bet I had someone scratching there head

Not the AC, but the old Flagship Lounge run was pretty fun. On a single itinierary I was able to hit BOS, MIA, LHR, and ORD. I was only missing the DFW club.

I did YYZ-BOS-PBI-BOS-LAX-BOS-YYZ early in the year during the free ticket promotion. That was 3 AC's including BOS 3 times. Would have included MIA as well, but a schedule change had me drop MIA in favor of PBI.
