Flying out San Francisco, USA (SFO) to Honolulu, USA (HNL) with United Airlines

At the age of 50 I was flying out San Francisco, USA (SFO) to Honolulu, USA (HNL) with United Airlines. It was a lot different than flaying with PANAM, I started with PANAM in 1988 and work until it’s collapse on December 4, 1991. (CEO, 1988–1991) Russell L. Ray Jr. was the man we all had to see before our despatcher. All senator pilots had got to New York City the Headquarters of PANAM, for a last good-by.

At that we had kids (ages 12 through to 19) and my wife at that time, also an airline company, United Airlines. But “we had a great support system,” I got a job with United Airlines late in 1992 with fly opposite schedules so that someone can always be at home; my Mum and Dad were great live close by and were very involved with the kids.

I have now flown for over 30 years and worked as a flight instructor and regional pilot before joining PANAM. And now with United Airlines until 2008. “People are entrusting their lives to us,” and. “As they walk onto my airplane, they’re trusting that I got enough sleep, that I’m healthy and eating right and I have the mental acuity and I’ve done the preparation to safely get them from point A to point B so they can relax and watch a movie.”

Great series! You have probably spent about as much time in the air, as on the ground, some years!smile
Glad you lived to tell about it! Have you ever thought about how many total flights you've made commercially and how many total passengers you have hauled from all the points A to points B??? I'll wager it would be  real mind-boggler.....no???
Always a treat, Amigo!

According to the people at FlightRadar-24, who keep track of
aircraft around the world, the number varies based on the time of day and year.
“If we’re talking about peak traffic for the whole year, a Friday afternoon
between 2pm and 4pm (UTC - coordinated universal time) in July or August will
see slightly more than 16,000 flights in the air,” said Ian Peacenik, from the
company. “The same time period in January or February will see about 13,000
flights in the air.”

 Flights from San
Francisco, USA (SFO) to Singapore (SIN) twice a week that’s with United Airlines
with a lay-over 24 hours. I worked for United Airlines from 1992 to 2008.

With PANAM flights from San Francisco, USA (SFO) to
Honolulu, USA (HNL) Twice a week with a 48 hour lay-over. I worked for PANAM
1972 to 1991. Total passengers I have not got a clue!! But I can find out!! In fact you are not the only one who has me that question recently. I have been asked by a publisher, to write about my time in the air. "Fly-High"!!
