In principle, mine is also no different to everyone else's on here, just different cities and classes.
Your map looks like travel wasn't for the sake of flying, but rather a necessary (evil, since you flew such long legs in Y) method to get to where you needed to be.

Can you elaborate what that even means?

What do you mean? Who hasn't put OMA on their bucket list?

Fixed totally garbled post. To make a little more sense. I hate Steve Jobs!

Probably @Dan, he's an AMZN investor, not a BRK.B or BRK.A investor. But for plain mortals OMA is definitely on the bucket list.

A little tip: You can just import TripIt data to openflights.org
I was having chalishas hadaas from the DDMS post. This might help, I really would love totrack everything, and TripIt keeps track of my stuff already anyway. All I have to do is note which travel is for family members who I book for and which is mine.

LGA-YUL - 6k DL (Y)
YUL-CMN-FCO - 44k EY (J)
FCO-TLV - 10k Iberia Avios (Y)
TLV-AMM-DOH-JFK - 63k AA (J/Qsuites)

It was all part of one big trip so I bunched it together.

If no one goes before January 1st, I would be happy to post first. Still have travel plans before the end of the year. For others who don’t, they can start.

OK, time's up. GO!

Nice! Hoping to fly TLV-AMM-DOH-IAD this year, did you have access to the F lounge in DOH?
how can I book the the tlv-Amm-Doh-Jfk via AA on one ticket? As I understand the over water carrier has to publish the fare which QR doesn't do from tlv. Thanx

I searched each segment individually on BA (this was before you could search QR on AA) and called AA to book all on one ticket.
