    Seth, so you actually begin by going down to ZFV? Would MetroPark or NYPenn work? How do you travel to ZFA so early?

    I have a ZFV departure for a MR, but just got an email of schedule change ZFW-EWR.. Think I have a chance of ditching that segment now, by using schedule change as an excuse? … Would rather leave from EWR anyway.

    Jon, you can probably drop the ZFV segment due to the schedule change. Call and ask.

    When I’ve tried same-day MRs with short turn around times, I attempt to ensure that I am departing on the same aircraft as I arrive – or schedule a longer connection. SAN may have just a bit too many flights to reliably predict the aircraft, but if you are turning at a station like SMF or PHL, you can often figure it out based on aircraft type.

    There where weather related delays all over yesterday, but I don’t think any set back more than 30 mins on flights. And it was mostly because flights flew around the weather.

    Do you mind sharing the stats for your 72 hours?

    # miles flown, # segments, # RDM’s, # PQM’s, etc…

    Did you have a hotel at all during the 72 hours?

    Sounds like hell to me, but I mostly just fly as much as I need to and not a lot more… 🙂

    […] the same airports over and over again. Some of that fell apart due to delays and sometimes because I chose to change some of flights. And the flying was, overall, really quite reasonable. I met some nice people along the way and […]
