All I Could Jet 2010


Written by:

After more than 39 hours in the air and nearly 19,000 miles flown across 15 flights I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of Jet Blue’s All You Can Jet promotion. With that much flying I had the in-flight commercials memorized and had no problem deciding what snacks to choose (plantain chips are interesting but you can’t go wrong with the Munchies Mix).

I touched down in eight states and three countries over the course of 29 days this fall. Although it could be argued that this promotion is environmentally irresponsible, I’ve been consoling my guilt by remembering that these flights would have left even without the additional AYCJ passengers. You can see my route below—highlights were definitely Washington D.C. and Colombia but I enjoyed seeing family, friends and sights in all of my destinations.

    Hi! I’m sure you’re getting bombarded by comments and emails (since being in the NYT) but I wanted to say hi, I’m also in Chicago, have also traveled solo RTW and also did the JetBlue AYCJ! I’m assuming you work freelance (since you travel so much)? Yeah, me too. 🙂 I’m always looking to expand my circle of freelance friends (or anyone who can take some time time to travel- most people either have the time or the money, but not both). I’d love to talk travel with you sometime!

    Aimee, wow—great to meet another local traveler. I worked at a design agency before my first RTW but had to quit in order to get that much time off. Since I’ve been back I’ve been working freelance/as my own company which does give me a lot more freedom. Being a designer also means I can usually take my work with me. I’ll shoot you an email…
