I did flights shorter than that already, and I haven't seen less than $50 RT, but I definitely intend to do that. As well as fly in/out of VDA, maybe to HEL.
i only flew 1 way  ???

Aha. Prices for this week are $95-$140 RT, which is the higher end, still may do it. (Flying out of TLV next sunday, so a return on MT"S/Sunday works well...)

Some of the weird items on my bucket list, not sure which other ones deserve to make it.
1. LYR-Svalbard Airport, Longyear, north most airport in the world.
2. Hawaii.
3. Fly the upper deck of a 747 (donno why this has such an appeal to me)
4. BOB/MLE.
5. Shower on a plane.
6. Take a flight shorter than 19 minutes airtime (current shortest)
7. Northern lights.

Complete:
Beat SF to Israel.

You might have the only list on here that Ive fully completed

I only put things that I can actually see myself getting done, so it makes sense, don't see a point of having an impossible list.

Thats how it should be. I remember once on an Ethiopian Air flight and we passed Kilminjaro, and my seatmate, a touch shy of 400 pounds tells me its on his bucket list to climb Kilmnjaro. Lol

Snowmobiling in the French Alps.
Paragliding.
Reached an altitude of 2100m on the ground (should have went higher :(,(a mere 350m lower than the cruising altitude of the lowest flight I've taken)

I believe there is talk of a FS and/or Aman in Croatia,  may be worth waiting.

@aussiebochur, need you to chime in here and tell him what a fool he is.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
