AIR CHINA TO JFK

This time I flew the Boeing 747-8I from Beijing to New York in the air China livery. This is one of my favourite long haul flights. The cruise speed was mach 0.86 and we’ve used the step climb method as well. The flight took place on the expert server. We had an nice foggy departure out of Beijing too!
