Are we doing them all in a row our will we have a bit of a break in between flights

A bit of a break since the times for each flight are unknown for exact times. So yes there will be a bit of a break

Just a quick head’s up, Mach 0.85 is way too fast for the A320, 757, and 737 series aircraft. Check this topic for information regarding cruise speeds.

Here are the economical cruise speeds for each aircraft:
A320/B737 Series: Mach 0.78
A330: Mach 0.82
757: Mach 0.8-0.81
777: Mach 0.84
A350/787: Mach 0.85
A380: Mach 0.85-0.86

Sounds like a neat idea, have fun!

Ok thanks. @Thunderbolt Where is the link?

Just realized that the link I provided is outdated, the original post is now updated with cruise speeds.
