If we include stops that were merely part of a tag-on where I never actually got off the plane, mine would be 4 as well:

ZNZ-JRO(remain on board)-ADD(change planes)-JED(remain on board)-FRA(change planes)-SFO

My longest was NCE-ZRH-MCT-BKK. Ended up getting sick on the return because of how long it was.

I used to take the COPA Central America milk run: Guatemala City, Managua, San Salvador, San Jose and Panama City. At night we would unload, load up and take off for the next country.

The plan was:
SZG-VIE-IAD-OKC
but what happened was:
SZG-VIE-FRA-BOS-IAD-IAH-OKC
Missconnects in VIE, FRA, and IAD
Tech stop in Boston because our 748 had a landing gear sensor malfunction.

LH took good care of us though, nice hotels in FRA and IAD.

Imperialhill:
If memory serves me right since I rode it often between DCA and INT, flight 241 operated DCA-LYH-DAN-INT-HKY-ATL with the 227B.
FH227B's could not operate into BKW or BLF. Only Martin 404 or YS11's.
LWB was served by YS11's and even 737-200's but service to LWB did not begin until the early 70's.
There were no 7 or 8 stop ATL-DCA flights as late as 1968. The most usually 4. CAB route awards required 2 stops minimum.
The "prestige" run was a 737-200 (flights 030 and 033) that routed ATL-FAY-ISO-IAD-LGA roundtrip.
And think of this nowadays. A hot dinner service w/beverages was served between LGA and IAD by 2 F/A's. Flt 33 departed LGA 515pm.
Flights routed DCA-CHO-LYH-ROA usually continued to TRI, CRW, HTS, PKB, LEX, SDF, CVG or CMH.
watch what you want. you may get it.

On AA 720?707 LAX-PHX-DAL-BWI-BOS (If I recall it was same plane thru to BWI or all the way to BOS) It was back in 68?69?70? I do remember full lunch service in F from LAX to PHX.

Just one for me; I prefer flying nonstop but if I can't, I try to book a single stopover whenever possible.

On a trip to Grandma's house for Christmas one year, this was our flight:
RIC-CLT-(INT*)-BNA-DEN

*Winston-Salem was a maintenance diversion. It was the early 1980s and Piedmont still had their primary MX base at Smith-Reynolds Airport. Our 727 had barely left CLT when they announced that due to a lack of cabin pressure we were going to land at INT and fix the plane. The one and only time I've ever deplaned & boarded via the rear airstairs.

For me THS-BKK-DOH-LHR-MAN...

the DOH-LHR-MAN option was quicker than waiting at DOH for an onward flight to MAN and it also meant a more comfortable flight on an A380 instead of a 787

Interesting you should mention Phnom Penh. My longest number of stops was a flight from PNH > BKK last year which ended up as PNH > BKK > PNH > VTE > DMK and a total journey time of 3 weeks for a direct line distance of 500km. Those first 2 flights (PNH > BKK > PNH) were on the same afternoon and didn't involve leaving the airport. Long story.


This should be interesting. I am currently plotting from DMK to other parts of south east asia. VTE/LPQ/HAN/DAD/SGN et al.

Hey guys,
Most stops by far was on Ansett/Ansett WA in the early 1990s...
Sydney - Alice Springs (727-200LR)
six hour wait
Alice Springs - Darwin (737-300)
immediate and very rushed change of plane but I did see a B-52 land at Darwin Airport!!!
Darwin - Kununurra (146-200)
stayed on the plane along with all other passengers
Kununurra - Derby (the same 146-200)
stayed on the plane along with all other passengers
Derby - Broome (the same 146-200)
It was a ridiculously long day!
On the way back, I flew Broome-Perth and was put up free of charge in a 5 Star hotel overnight at Ansett's expense before the first flight out to Sydney next morning....
Such an awesome trip!
Cheers,
Bunumuring

8 stops to get from Denver to Chicago

DEN - PUB - PNC - DFW - HOT - HRO - MCI - IRK - UIN - MDW

I remember a passenger boarding in DFW and the flight crew doing the intro briefing for the flight going to Hot Springs.

The passenger interrupted asking, I thought we were going to Kansas City?
The pilot said, we will get to Kansas City eventually, but you have to go through Hot Springs and Harrison before you get to Kansas City.

At that point the passenger grumbled - Stupid American - The passenger had bought a ticket from DFW to MCI but I guess American was oversold, he volunteered and American rebooked him on this flight to MCI from DFW through HOT and HRO.

Only two for me. I was going MSP-CDG in 2007 (one year before NW began a non-stop, naturally). So I was booked on US via PHL. However, my MSP-PHL leg was already announced as two hours delayed by the night before (probably due to a crew rest requirement because it was the first flight of the day for the plane and I don't know why else it would have been delayed so far in advance).

Knowing this, I put on my nice clothes and got to the airport extra early to be rebooked at the counter. I wound up taking NW MSP-DTW-EWR (in Y), connecting to CO EWR-CDG in BusinessFirst because I was dressed nicely and that was the only seat open. That was the only time I ever got to fly in a premium cabin so far. Of course it was only a 6.5 hour flight and the seats were not 180-degree lie flat back then (it was a 752) so I still didn't get any sleep. We were halfway there by the time meal service was done. And I was 20 so I didn't have any free wine. Still a nice experience!

If I remember correctly back in 1982 !when I was a lot fitter and younger I subjected to myself the following.
SYD / MEL / KUL / PEN / DEL / BRU / FCO / BRU /LHR.
Do not intend to do anything like this again!
Enjoy your next flight fellow travellers. Cheers 325 i
