Delta A350 Atlanta to Santiago

Been a while since I’ve done a proper long-haul flight, so I gave this one a go with an aircraft I don’t use very often, precisely because of how many of the routes this particular aircraft is used by this particular airline on are well in excess of 12 hours.

Server: Solo
Aircraft: Airbus A350-900 XWB

Those big Trent 1000s sure do get us going!

Nice! Cool Pictures. I like how you made it look like a passenger POV. However, isn’t port and starboard a boat thing? Because I’m a pilot and I hardly EVER hear those terms. It doesn’t matter just curious.

Thanks! Yeah, it’s normally a boat thing, but I’ve also heard port and starboard used in aviation too.
