I am trying to fly from Orange County to Billings that is 1298 miles. I suppose I could look on the fact that I will have to make two stops in between as exciting. I supposed that I could look on the fact that I will spend eight hours and 47 minutes going those miles in a little shuttle as a travel adventure, to say nothing of the six hours and 47 minutes returning. I thought it was interesting that the itinerary speaks of the duration of the flight yes, I will endure it and be glad that I am going but also since I am spending $465.80 for the flight, there seems to be a disparity between the flights around the world and the flight to Billings. I could have spent more on this flight much more. I could have spent $2,121.00 and on some flights I could have spent up to 13 hours and 20 minutes, not just in the air, but waiting for a connection!

5,150 USD in Economy Class;
9,950 USD in Business Class;

Even with the Euro at 1.2687 per $1, I could fly Amsterdam/Mexico City/Houston/Los Angeles/Tokyo/ Bangkok/Amsterdam for only $2,536.13 and I could probably see something other than the inside of the Las Vegas or Denver airports. . . and earn all those miles.
I am beginning to sound like Andy Rooney.
