A Sunrise on the Persian Gulf to a Clear Day in the City of Brotherly Love

DOHA to PHILADELPHIA

Hello everybody it’s the ” Screenshot topic spammer “ In the words of @AlphaSeven :)
Anyways, back in August I flew Doha to Philadelphia with the Qatar 77W and the flight time was 13 Hours and 19 Minutes, so for the past 6 months I’ve been trying to break that and that’s why I’ve had so many long haul posts. I wanted to break the record because- 1: Who doesn’t like breaking a personal record and 2: Because the A350 wasn’t in the game I used the 777 which isn’t realistic. Because I knew I was going to make a post with screenshots from this flight I waited until 10:30 PM so the sun was rising in Doha. I like flying between Doha and Philly because other than the usual, boring European airlines like Lufthansa, Aer Lingus and British Airways, Qatar is the only interesting airline we get. I was joined by @Devon_Mo_piedmont114 even though we got separated over the Atlantic and I landed 20 minutes before him.

Flight time was 13 Hours 41 Minutes which was my longest (only for a week) because I shattered that on Friday. I’ll have that post in the next few days.

As always please let me know your thoughts and your favorite photo!

What was the busiest destination out of Philadelphia in 2019 by passenger count?

The answer to yesterday’s question was Delta which only 35% of people got right! And to the 5 people who guessed United, they don’t even fly into JFK

I’LL SEE YOU GUYS TOMORROW!

Many great shots once again! Greenland looks incredible as does the A350, and you capture its beauty extremely well as always!

That literally used to be me when I made these topics everyday. Oh, how the tables have turned.

Wether you’re a screenshot topic spammer or not, these are some great photos once again, @NoahM! That Qatar livery sure looks good on the A350.

Thank you! Depending on the flight plan this plane sometimes descends into Philly just a few miles away from my house so I can see it! Usually it’s when its passing through 6,000 ft so it’s fun to see

Thanks a lot! @OneLetterShor2

I’m running out of ways to respond to you, besides thanks! :)
Canada is surprisingly (or not really) beautiful! And Greenland was cool too

Thank you! I’m a big fan of the Qatar livery, it’s simple but classic, the maroon and silver is such a great match! And the A350 can only make it better
