Did you fly on a plane in 2021?

2021 was yet another year of hectic travel—more canceled flights and staff shortages… Oy! Despite the troubles, though, many people still managed to fly in 2021. Did you?

If you did fly on a plane in 2021, did you do so just once or more than one time? Tell us where you went in the comments, especially if it was somewhere warm and tropical. We want to live through you!

Sure, why not? Just back from a trip requiring 4 different flights. Headed out in March for 4 more flights.

The last time I was in a plane it was a Cessna back in the late 1970s. Truth is, I’d rather drive to where I’m going, especially now that I have a motorhome.

Flew to Orlando in Sep to meet my son, dil, grands, her mother, sister and brother (and their significant others) and my sister and fiancé for my grandsons first birthday. All flew in except my sister and her fiancé who drove down from GA. Flew to MT over Christmas to be with son, dil and grands.
The return to LV from MT was delayed an hour. It was an hour late leaving Phoenix because the manifest and seat count didn’t match. After several people tried the count they determined that someone with a “lap child” had put that child in a seat. From now on they will probably make an announcement on flights that aren’t full that those children need to be in your lap unless you want to pay for another ticket.

Love flying, hate airlines! I flew a lot when the airplanes had those big fans on the front of the wings and actually had service in the cabin.

Took four days to drive the RV and Jeep out to the midwest, so my wife could stay and help a family member for a few months. I flew back home from there.

LAX to Alaska and back. Rented a motorhome in Anchorage and spent 3 weeks on the road. And saw the Aurora! But yes, I would like to tow my trailer there instead.

I flew roundtrip from Mesa AZ to Lansing MI with a stop over in Detroit. It was a solo trip but for one of the most important to me. I went to take care of the 2 grandbabies, ages 2 & 4, while the parents had a trip. It was a joy that filled my heart.

Actually, I’ve never flown on a plane – never had a need or desire to do so.

No but after Seattle traffic once, my wife flew the second time and I stayed in Idaho with the trailer.

I did not, but I rarely do. I prefer to drive wherever I can. I usually enjoy most, if not all, of the drive and I do not have to rent a car when I reach my destination. Although my car (Jeep Grand Cherokee) does not have unlimited storage space, I do usually travel with more baggage than airlines allow without additional charges. If I travel with little luggage, then I at least avoid lugging a bag through the terminal or awaiting its arrival at baggage claim.

Round trip DFW-RNO for the air races. Nice flight, nice crew, no problems. Got around the mask mandate by sipping coffee most of the flight.

I flew home to see my family and doctors. It was nice to not have a person crammed in beside me. I have an immune system disease so I stayed masked in the airport and plane.
