Hello and welcome on board this Emirates 777-300ER (Registration: A6-ECS) scheduled to fly from India Grandhi International Airport (DEL:VIDP) to Dubai International Airport (DXB:OMDB) as Emirates 511 Heavy, carrying 283 passengers to the hot desert of the Arabic coastline. Our takeoff time was 0616Z with our touchdown in Dubai at 0933Z.
The shots are in order of occurence, No.1 being the origin gate and No. 10 being the destination gate.
Powering the 777, we have two massive General Electric GE90 engines, the largest engines on any commerical aircraft which will take us up to a cruise altitude of 38000ft (FL380) on this 3hr 15min trip over northwest India, southern Pakistan and over the Arabian sea and the peninsula towards Dubai.
The 777 has become the backbone of the Emirates fleet, with the largest fleet of 777s anywhere in the world, with an astonishing range and completing flights from 2hrs up to 17hrs, showing its competence in the modern aviation world.
I wish our passengers a pleasant stay in Dubai or a safe onward journey.
