For my next long-haul flight I decided to depart from one of the airports being controlled by ATC for the day; Seattle Tacoma Intl. Airport. Normally, Emirates uses the Boeing 777-300ER for this return flight to Dubai. However, due to the global pandemic, passenger numbers are rather low, making the A350 a great alternative.
Callsign: Emirates 228 Heavy
Aircraft: Airbus A350-900 XWB
Route: Seattle Tacoma International Airport (KSEA) to Dubai International Airport (OMDB)
Flight time: 14 hours and 19 minutes
Our plane to Dubai parked at the gate
Plenty of aircraft activity on the ground at SeaTac
Flying over the Canadian Rockies
Flying over Greenland
Due to my late descent I was forced to circle around the shore of Dubai
Another Emirates A350 observing my final approach towards runway 12R at Dubai Intl.
Butter touchdown (the A350 imo is the easiest aircraft to land)
Watching the same A350 depart
Arrived at Dubai’s Terminal 3, Emirates’ hub
Hope you enjoyed these photos! :)
