After indulging in nostalgia of the old Austrian Airlines Flights from Vienna to Sydney (with a stop Singapore or Kuala lumpur) I have decided to try the (nearly) impossible myself.
I will try to fly a SWISS B777-300ER with 42 Pax, minimal cargo and all the fuel I can take from Sydney to Zurich. My calculations show that all the B777-200LR, B777-200ER and B777-300ER should be able to make that distance without load (fingers crossed).
Cruising altitude will be 36k going up to 43.1k with Mach 0.84. (Suggestions and reasons why I should change either are always welcome with proper reasoning)
I have taken off just a few minutes ago and you will be able to follow me on LiveFlight for the next approximately 19 hours of flight time. Call sign is the usual G-NICK.
Wish me luck.
