Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Consider choosing rectangular projection for the map instead of polar. Gives it a much better sense of place IMO.

That's more like it ;D.

Theres a place for both, especially with LYR in the mix. But you don't get a sense of place with polar IMO.

In any case, here's mine:



  • EWR-LHR-OSL-TOS-LYR-OSL-BOO-LKN-BOO-OSL-ZRH-EWR on United, SAS, Wideroe and Swiss: 60k UA + $292.26, mix of Y, Y+, and Get A Life.
  • JFK-KEF-JFK: $350.01 on Delta, Y+
  • JFK-SAV-JFK: $230.60 on JetBlue, Y
  • JFK-SYR-JFK: $149 on Jetblue, Y
  • JFK-ABQ-JFK: 16.9k B6 + $11.20 on Jetblue, Y+

19 segments, 23,411 miles flown, 1,232 average length.
