Kind of streaky in my case. I generally do long haul 3 times a year from Mex to Europe or Asia. However one long haul into Europe can come along with 12 to 14 short haul legs included in that trip. In Mexico I don't tend to do much internal flying these days as I'll often go stateside to see family when I've got spare time. I can easily go 3 months not flying and then have another flurry of flights over a few weeks

With family overseas I tend to do at least two long-haul trips per year (TX/West Coast USA and SE Asia with side trips built in) and 3-4 European holidays and 2-3 domestic trips as well. Usually like to space my trips out roughly every 6 weeks so I've always got something to look forward to.

Probably about 15 round trips each year purely between JER and the mainland (half personal, half for work), and then three or four leisure trips (mostly to Europe, perhaps one a year to the US). So about 50 flights, but well over half of them involving JER in some way and thus being very short.

Leisure only and I generally do around one LH a month over the last nine months, though its not usually as much as that. (Wife is CC). A few other SH to Spain (skiing) and Greece (sailing) at various points in the year.

Because a lot of the flying is Staff Travel no status, however some proper J stuff booked via BAH this year so Silver is coming.

Always loved travel and our retirement funding takes into account J travel with BA to try and maintain Silver.

Also like BA so most of our flying will be with them. Had the misfortune of trying Qantas LH last week - hopefully never again.

Pre-covid 150 - 200 flight per year. So roughly 3 or 4 per week. Post-covid it's more like 70 - 80 per year. The majority are SH for work.

About one round trip per month - about 1/3 of that is for work. I fly more than some, but not enough to go all in for status with one airline.

5-6 LH and 4-5 SH every year, some work, some leisure. Work in media which takes me to some interesting places, plus family overseas means some trips for catching up too.

Simple old Leisure traveller, but we try to get away on holiday every 2/3 of months. Ex-JER obviously adds connecting sectors every trip, which conveniently ups the Sector count and the TPs! Pre-Covid, >30 Sectors p/a, currently ~20. Destinations ... mainly USA, Caribbean and Mediterranean.

Too often.............8 flights next week, week after = 4, week after that = 5 and then another 5 the following week, each of these trips being work-related. Yes, it can be tiring at times but it's part of the job. Each of these flights is short haul Europe and I get to fly in Club which makes it a bit more comfortable.
