A Cloudy Morning on the Persian Gulf to a Clear Sky in Geneva

DOHA to GENEVA

So I’ve been looking at this flight for a while because of its amazing scenery, and I finally got the change to fly it two weeks ago. This flight, just like my Vienna to Madeira flight, I had to wake up at 2:30 AM, fly the plane to 10,000 feet and then sleep for the next 5 hours. It was a stunning flight and using the Qatar A350, which they use in real life, was a lot of fun. The real life callsign is Qatari 99 which was also randomly cool. Flight time was 5 hours and 56 minutes

And lately I’ve been having some people say that I shouldn’t have text on the photos, so I’m just wondering, should I keep the text on the photos?

While I think it’s your style, I think the text removes certain aspects of the photo. In my opinion you should remove them as I’m myself more of a fan of whole photos.

@AlphaSeven that must’ve been a really fun flight with the views!

@LeonardIF18 THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

@Hymenopus_Coronatus it does now that I think about it, but hey if it looks like a former loading screen, I guess it’s a good photo 😂

Thank you! @KindaTartySliceOfPie I have a bit of a soft spot for the Qatar A350 because it’s the only interesting thing we get at PHL

@Infinite_Flight_Sims thanks! It’s hard to mess up photos with the A350, that’s for sure 😂

@Q-ENAN haha 😂

Geneva is absolutely stunning! It was made even better because I landed just before 2 Easyjet A319s and a Royal Air Maroc 787 from Casablanca!

And the wing view was AMAZING. The alps are always stunning and never fail to amaze

For that poll, all of the languages are the official languages of Switzerland.

I was surprised to see it was a route too! And when I learned they used the A350, I knew I had to fly it

Your angles of view are breathtaking but I find that the saturation of the colors destroys the photos. But if you like it, that’s the main thing! Good work. 😉
