More gates will be added if needed. Hopefully they will 😏

Also, feel free to fly in! It’ll be as realistic as possible. I’m even using the same gates as the real flights. I’ll try to get an IFATC for the event if we have enough people, but no guarantees. See ya there!

Note: Regulars, feel free to add people or yourselves to the gate list.i


I don’t think we have a Thai 77W, only the Thai 772.


I thought Hong Kong was 8 hours ahead of Zulu, therefore making it 2:00 PM? Great Idea! Finally an event in Hong Kong.


Sorry 🤦🏻‍♂️ I’ll correct it

Oh and add me in, I’ll come in a Cathay 77W, flying out to ZSPD.

Sure. Just wait, I’m trying to get the gates correct. The times were all wrong as well because it was originally going to be at 0400z.

Hmm, I would like to come. But it depends on my schedule during my vacation in KL. If my schedule isn’t too packed, I should be able to make for it 😊


If you can, which are route and aircraft you taking?

I guess I’ll take a route to RKSI as I won’t have much time unfortunately. I’ll take Asiana 772 😉

Maybe if I have more time and the gates are still empty then I would like to do a long haul to WIII with Cathay Pacific B777-300ER

  • Keep in mind that Cathay serves WIII with 777-300s during Holiday peak season 😊

Sorry ah, but maybe I’ll change the time to four hours earlier so that people in US can come. Is that ok @SingaporeAirlines @SirPilotOfAviation?

I think it will be okay, hopefully I will be free at 10am

Could I please get a gate? (subject to change)
United 777-200 VHHH-KEWR


We (SAAVA members) will be doing this route, to VHHH this Friday. Maybe a return flight might be a good idea on the day. Our CEO will decide. @Owain_G


Alright. That would be awesome!

Oh… the time changed. Sorry I most likely won’t be able to attend now


That’s ok. Sorry about that!


We will take 3 gates for now


Yeah I’m fine with that

@Kyle.Plane I think you should change this to prevent confusion…

For once a event with some fitting times for me!
Count me in! Not sure which route yet but most likely a flight of 8 hours.
