Interesting to know!

I was wondering why the DXB - GIG is shorter than DXB - PTY, then I noticed that Panama is on the northern hemisphere (so the flight will pass next to the Artica), and Rio on the southern one (crossing the Equator).

I leave in Abu Dhabi, maybe, when I will be more than 18 I will try this flight!
Just sad this isn’t an A380/340 flight :(

A380/340 probably don’t have the range as the B77L :(

17.5hrs in economy… wow

First hour feels good, but than it goes downhill for the next 16.5 hours.

A340-500 probBly has the range but they have 1 left in the fleet and that’s not used for long range flights

Man, 3-4-3 economy for this long? I’d gladly pay for F.

I normally don’t have a problem with 3-4-3. Flew it myself. Anything under 12hrs is no problem but 17.5hrs is nuts

If i had buisness class i would go

Me too! Sadly this route is delayed because Emirates needs a to sign a trade agreement (or something like that) with at least 13 countries (they already have 4 I guess) but they will retain their personnel in Panama anyway.

Well I didn’t mean to put it on the top. I was just asking to see what it was.
