All sorted! @IF_Aviation1 have moved you to Gate 542 and the ASVA guys are with each other too! Enjoy the event! -MB
I’ll take a gate! BAVA363
Gate assigned! -MB
BAVA214 put me on reserve might just be able to make it
Have assigned you a gate, no worries if you can’t make it! -MB
If you were looking carefully at our thread, you’d notice that a lot of ASVA pilots are interested in attending this event.
This is because with our partnership with ASVA, each Saturday we share a BAVA route with ASVA, and vice versa. This week, they decided they’d join us in celebrating the B747, and have EGLL - KJFK as their featured route!
You can find ASVA’s official Infinite Flight Community Thread here.

British Airways Virtual Airline 2019
I can join! BAVA342. FL380 is rather high even without passengers or cargo, maybe some steps…
May I recommend switching to T8 because BA just announced their change.
“British Airways has announced it will move from Terminal 7 to Terminal 8 at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport in 2022.”
I think that’s a bit premature, don’t you?
Yeah. Why not get used to it lol!
@Ilkka_L I have assigned you a gate:) In terms of step climbing, yes it would be ideal and realistic, however it is too hard to coordinate with a large group of pilots, especially if some don’t have access to IFA and/or leave their device and don’t have access to it during the flight. This is why we just have a set cruise altitude. By all means feel free to step climb up to FL380 if you would like though! -MB
I’ll take a gate BAVA-120
BAVA 127 I will take one !
FL380 is perfectly normal
You have to remember we’re going over an ocean aswell as we will have a headwind for a bit
It will be N1 105%, with 60% load, compared to normal N1 90%. At least in IF.
At higher altitudes the engines require less power because the air is less dense
We’ll see if I can make it, it is at 7:30 in the morning for me… if I can’t, I’ll try to intercept you guys when all of you get to KJFK
I want to join this event if it possible - Callsign: BAVA007
