Don’t worry at all! You can fly whatever you want to fly!

I know, I already had one, so decided on that!

I’ll be there! LSZH-KJFK Swiss A330… (would I be able to fly under Swiss VA call sign to log it as a VA flight too?)

If anyone wants to do this exact route, feel free to let me know!

Of course!
