A Scenic Saturday Sunday Funday Vibes Flight

Almaty to Phuket 🇰🇿 - 🇹🇭


Insert interesting greeting here Wow, try to say that title 5 times fast, just kidding don’t, it’s not that hard and you’ll just sound like an idiot. Last night I was looking for some random, but scenic 757 routes that I could fly. I didn’t have any ideas until I stumbled on Almaty to Male (just kidding, i looked it up). I saw it in Misha’s top 5 757 routes (here) and I liked everything about the flight, the livery, the airport, all of it. I was settled on waking up at 1 AM to fly the route, the sleeping again until it was time to wake up. But then, right when I was about to go to bed I decided I wouldn’t fly to Male in the Maldives, I wanted to fly to Phuket in Thailand from Almaty, because Phuket, why not. I admittedly don’t do much flying outside of North America, parts of Europe and Oceania, but after doing this flight I am willing to admit that I need to explore more parts of the world. I used the Sunday Airlines 757 on this flight which is now one of my favorite liveries in the game. Everything about it is just amazing, except for the small basic “Sunday Airlines” font at the front of the plane. It looks like they put about as much effort into that font as I did on my English paper that was due the day we went on Winter break. Flight time was 6 hours and 3 minutes.

Never have I flown in or out of Almaty but the views of the surrounding mountains were already stunning at the gate



Gonna be flying the 757 way more often with how fun it is to blast into the sky at 5,000 feet per minute


Give this route a chance and the views are amazing right away as we climb to 35,000 feet


You never get tired of mountainous views like this as we fly over the Chinese city of Ili


Up above the brown deserts of China as we make our way South toward Thailand


Never going to underestimate the scenery of places I haven’t been to as we cruise toward Phuket in the late afternoon


Gonna fly this approach many more times as the lush jungles of Thailand create for amazing scenery as we descend toward the tourist capital of the country


Let the scenery blow you away on this flight as we approach the airport 500 feet from touchdown


You may never see a cooler livery than this Sunday 757, and it is definitely fun to fly



Down on the runway in Phuket with the least buttery -53 I’ve ever seen!
