My first long haul flight!

This is my first transatlantic flight, it was in an a318
This was on the casual server, it was the LHR-JFK route, but i adapted it and i was flying the a318 with the callsign BAW1 (Speedbird 1).

Nice! I just finished my first attempt at my longest flight as well.
From KASN > LIH. The pressure of successfully landing a 6 hour flight, haha! :D
Congrats!

I usually (used to) do flights where I take off before I sleep, and land when I wake up. Might be easier for you. Congrats on your first transatlantic flight! The A318 is fun to fly.

I wouldn’t like to be in a small A318 for over 7 hours.

With BA, it was an all business layout, and as it didnt have an infotainment system, you were given an iPad :)

Hey, congrats on your first long-haul! And in such an iconic plane, too! I was so disappointed when BA announced that they were discontinuing this service.

this plane has been on my bucket list since I found out it existed in high school

I know, the callsign Speedbird 1 also retired with it :(

When I read the press release regarding it, I nearly impulse-purchased a ticket on the last flight (until I saw how expensive the tickets were).

Might I ask what you guys suggest to do during long-haul flights waiting for them to finish?

Set timers for the waypoints, just to check on your flight, then do whatever you want
