A Sunrise in Pennsylvania’s Biggest City to a Busy Day in the Jamaican Paradise

PHILADELPHIA to MONTEGO BAY

So this morning I decided to fly a route of the week for @AmericanVirtual, Philadelphia to Montego Bay, Jamaica. American uses their A321 and 767 (not anymore 767 😢) on this route so I decided to use the A321 because the 767 looks awful in the old American livery. My plan was to wake up at 6:30 AM, fly the plane to 10,000 feet and go back to sleep for 2 hours before starting my descent. I woke up, thought it looked a little dark to be 6:30, because that’s when the sunrise is, got a flight plan and flew the plane to 10,000 feet. I was about to go back to bed, when I realized it was 2:15 AM 🤦‍♂️. I never checked the clock. So then I woke up actually at 6:30 and my flight went as planned on the second try. I’m an idiot and flight time was 3 hours and 24 minutes.

Also, thanks a lot to @Jaylan_Brown for ATC at MKJS!

Stunning pictures! And you are extremely committed flying at such an early time of the day!

Also the American livery is just looking fantastic on the A321, especially with Caribbean scenery or a great sunrise.

Very well made post, as always, thanks for sharing!

Also Nr. 2 is another great contender for IFs Social Media in my opinion!

@JulianB thanks Julian! :D
I love the American livery because of how clean it is and for some reason the silver definitely fits with the Caribbean scenery!
