I usually fly JFK/NYC to LAX or SFO. After 20 years, I can tell you where I am just by looking out the window. Same can be said for route variations when I fly NYC/ORD/west coast or NYC/DEN/west coast. It gets to be ho-hum. Earlier this month, I flew SJC (San Jose CA) / IAH (Houston). This was a totally new route for me. I was pretty much glued to the window as we flew southeast. After about 60 minutes, we flew over ABQ (Albuquerque). I've been to ABQ, but it's only from the air that I realized how big it is. The entire flight was a pleasant change of scenery. In November I had the same experience as we flew home, from Santiago Chile to JFK. My seat was on the right, so I was lucky enough to see the sun rise in the east. I never see the sun rise or set when I fly. Tell us your story.
