So it’s been three weeks since I posted screenshots on IFC which is quite a while and this one is a special occasion.
This week I recently decided to join my very first non European VA, @QatarAirwaysVirtual and I couldn’t be any happier with my decision!! 🤩
Here at QRV, we got ranks and only higher ranks can operate all the widebodies in our fleet, so because I just started, I am starting off with the little Airbus A319.
In real life, Qatar Airways sends their Airbus A319-133LR mostly to Nice in France, Yangon in Myanmar, Zanzibar in Tanzania and sometimes to Georgia, Armenia, Iraq, Oman and Ethiopia. Qatar Airways only owns 2 Airbus A319-133LR in their whole fleet!

Took off in the morning from extremely hot Doha with a very heavy load.
Some more views of the city.
Always get these sort of views when flying over Iran and they never disappoint!
Love flying in this part of the world.
When flying over Iran, a Qatari A350 is flying on the same airway 3,000ft above me.
Istanbul is massive! It was hard to get it all of it in one picture.
After passing Istanbul, we continue flying over Greece, then onto Albania and the coast of Italy is visible in the distance.
After crossing Albania and the east coast of Italy, we turn slightly right and begin flying right along the west coast of Italy and got views of cities such as Naples and Rome.
After battling headwinds, to end this amazing long flight, the landing was just 👌. This was the smoothest landing I’ve done in a long time with a rate of -47FPM
When I parked at my gate, I was surprised to see those quite big mountains right in front of me!
Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed!
