    IST-GRU on Turkish then back to North America would make that map look even nicer.

    How do you color code your route on gcmap.com?

    i think JFK-SCL-SYD-BKK-CAI-LHR-JFK probably has less total travel time, but it’s 1 extra flight.

    JFK-SCL-SYD-DXB-CAI-FCO-JFK is probably even shorter.

    What a waste of flights. You might as well fly back and forth to Vancouver a dozen times.

    Get out there!

    The IST-IAH arrives around 6PM and either IAH-CCS or IAH-BOG leave around 11PM. Then AV244 BOG-JFK arriving at 10PM! Just a thought.

    will you be stepping out of the airport at all of these stops?

    hiw did you pack for this? what type of bag?
    i’m doing a big mileage run, for me at least, today, and had a tough time using an easy bag for running throught 5 airports in one day and yet still be able to hold a change of clothes for a bussiness meeting i scheduled in the middle

    You must be paying a lot for the one way from JNB to IST to JFK?

    How long are you spending in Doha? If you feel like a meetup with a reader in Doha, let me know. Just moved here a few weeks ago, but would love to grab dinner or something if you’re interested.

    Pretty pointless really unless you’re just after adding lines to your flightmemory or stamps to your passport. I enjoy a nice flight in business as much as the next man but ultimately it’s all about the destination for me…

    I have a very similar route next month, 6 continents in 3 weeks.

    I’ve got 4 continents in four days later this year – LHR, SIN, SYD, DEN (and a half dozen airports in between). I thought that was impressive, but it does’t have anything on this (awesome) monstrosity.

    Welcome to Doha! I’m a reader based in this fine city. If you have a few hours on layover tonight, and can pry yourself away from the Premium Terminal, I’d be happy to take you for Shisha 🙂

    @mikus33, you too!

    JDW, I’m up for a meetup tonight or some other time. Feel free to email me at mikus33@yahoo.com.

    I’m of the opinion that the inside of an airplane, as well as the view of the earth outside it, is pretty much the same from each continent. But, enjoy it nonetheless!

    I’d be curious how you pack for something like this.

    Kudos to packing into one backpack!

    If you count NZ as a continent, then I touched 6 continents within 2.5 days on a trip last year, just because I could.
