Hi Everyone, Pilots, ATC, Ladies, Gentlemen, Humans, Others and Flying Dogs, alike…
With the announcement, and currently on-going Rework of the Boeing 777 Series, and since on-behalf of my request, asking Staff to close the previous Feature Request to make a Brand New one, so hereby I present, the new Feature Request for the Livery of the National Flag Carrier of Bangladesh; Biman Bangladesh Airlines, and more specifically their 777-300(ER).
We as of today, currently, from what I got to know, upon request by someone, have the callsign for the airline, but the livery is still not available in Infinite Flight… Now that the 777 Series is undergoing a thorough rework, this is the absolute perfect time to show some love for Biman.
The Airline utilizes its 777-300(ER) mainly on routes from their Main Hub; Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, to its Secondary Hub; Osmani International Airport, Sylhet, as well as Flights to Muscat, Doha, Dammam, Chittagong, Abu Dhabi and London–Heathrow, with special charter flights, multiple times a day to Jeddah and Medina during the Islamic Pilgrimage (Hajj).

For centuries, the Hajj has been a sacred time of the year for Islam, annually, and as of this year, more than 1.5 million Muslims are said to attend the Hajj in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. With the ever-increasing populations of this world, humans have tried to find new ways of transportation, and flying has always been a dream for mankind.
Bangladesh has estimated, that there are roughly 130,000 pilgrims travelling to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. And Biman is said to carry an outstanding 65,000 pilgrims to Jeddah, King Abdulaziz International Airport.
The 4 of the 777-300ER, Biman currently have in their fleet have seat configurations that allow for little over 400 passengers to travel, as Biman’s flight from London to Dhaka via Sylhet is considered one of the most hectic flight to depart London-Heathrow, those days of the week that Biman operates BG202.
August 9th, 2019 - August 14th, 2019
Today, August 9th, marks the beginning of the Hajj, 2019, and will go on until around the 14th. This scared time of the year changes with the lunar calendar, but each year as we enter this period, Biman Bangladesh, along with many other airlines in the Middle East, South Asia and Southeast Asia, partake in charter flights that depart multiple times a day.
Hectic / Busy Routes, Peak Travelling Time
By voting for Biman Bangladesh Airlines, 777-300ER, you have the chance to fly this airline on some of the most hectic routes during one of the peak travelling times of the year, where hundreds of thousands of pilgrims leave for Mecca from Dhaka, on basis of multiple flights a day.
Yeah, I don’t like unnecessary bumping but this topic didn’t got any reply for nearly 5 months. Just gave it a bump so that whoever likes this livery and wants this in the sim can give support to this by voting for this request.
