Mark your calendar for October 11th :) This will be historic since they’re continuing an old route more efficiently.

The efficiency of the 787 and 777 family and A350 series is unbeatable. I love how Boeing and Airbus are connecting the world as clean as possible.

Well, at least for now ;)

I wouldn’t say testing planes, but could’ve been the registration on another one of Singapore’s planes.

It’s actually not that loud… I’m used to the sound. I keep my window shades open at night and just watch them pass by. Great way to fall asleep haha.

Alright, we’re getting off topic haha - PM me if you want to respond or have any questions :)

Technically it hasn’t taken delivery yet because it hasn’t arrived yet, it’s still over Northern Europe.

I just saw that on twitter I’m really hoping that the A350 Will be added to Infinite flight soon with this aircraft cause I want to do this route Ibera uses the A350 and so does Cathaty Pacific.

So, this will be the next after DOH-AKL route? 😀
The duraton of the flight slightly similar with it

Or possibly longer than Qantas’ Boeing 787-9 PER-LHR
