This is the only reason I link my TripIt account to all my travel reservations. The ability to go back and use that data in any way, shape or form I want is very freeing. I remembered last year seeing this visualization and decided to spend a full year logging all flights and hotels inside of TripIt. This is the outcome of that journey:
2013’s Travel Summary
I wish it was in miles but this is all I got for now. As you can see I got that that SEA-ATL flight down to a science.
Distance flown by air segment
If it wasn’t for this chart I would have forgotten I stepped in Denver and Dallas this year too.
Number of air segments by airport
I think you can easily tell which frequent flyer program i like the most :-) I wish I would have made it to Platinum at Delta but I guess it wasn’t meant to be this year. I do have to give props to the people manning the social accounts for @delta and @DeltaAssist they have responded to my tweets very quickly and helped me book alternate flights when needed.
Airlines I travelled on
Well that’s it for now, see you all Up in the Air next year ;-)
