BEIJING to DALLAS
First of all, yes I know that this route is suspended for now because of the Coronavirus, but I actually flew this route almost a month ago when the flights were happening daily. I just didn’t have the chance to get the screenshots for the 12 hour flight until last night. Back to the flight- I actually don’t have any reason why I really wanted to fly the route, except for the fact that I wanted a long Trans-Pacific flight. I took off from Beijing a little after 9 AM (8 PM for me). I flew north out of Beijing, over Russia, Northern Alaska, Calgary and down into Texas where I arrived just after 7 AM local time in Dallas (8 AM for me). I used the American 787-9 (-8 is used in real life) and my flight time was 12 hours 4 minutes.
