KJFK-EDDF Flight Lufthansa 401

Did my first flight across the Atlantic and decided to go for the Lufthansa 747-8 and flight 401 that exists in reality. Wanted to share some pics along the flight

Nice! My first flight across the pond was a British Airways Boeing 787-9 Callsign Speedbird 10 Heavy, Flight time was 8 hours from Heathrow to JFK, but you had that lucky tailwind

Thank you for all the kind words people!
Whenever I get time for a flight in the future I’ll make sure to grab some nice pics ;)
The tailwind was really helpful. I really like to use windy.com to see what’s going on on my route, it’s not always 100% accurate to infinite flight weather but it gets the job done to give you an idea.
I recommend you go check it out

My first was New York to Paris or New York to London or one of those places from LA.
