How much work travel do you do?

How many flights have you taken this year? and what % of your time is spent on the road?

2 flights. 2 day trips - Qatar and Kuwait.

Meant to be going to Riyadh and Jeddah for a two dayer in Sept. But trying to avoid.

Weekly drive to Abu Dhabi and 2-3 little trips around Dubai to see clientfolk.

Easy.

My daily commute is a killer. Across the landing, down the stairs and across the hallway.



Various trips across Dubai and regularly to AD. I am overdue a trip to Doha, but that'll have to wait until after Ramadan now.

Normally 2-3 days a time except India which takes up to 10 days.

I've just totted up mine. 41 flights this year on around 17 business trips. Average duration is around 3 days, unless it's to DC which is 2 weeks. This equates to something like 40% of my time I guess.

I find it amazing how much people travel these days - especially from this region.

This year? Not at all.

The year before though, I did Barcelona, Berlin, Moscow, DC, Las Vegas, and London.

That's rough.

Of my 40 odd flights, only around 5 have been in economy, and another 2 on Fly Dubai (but there are not a lot of options to Afghanistan).

Why? I'd love to go there (seriously) - probably because I know I can't

The offer still stands.

Come to Dubai and I'll buy you a pint.
