My Longest Journey - Reúnion to Los Angeles!

My Story: Reúnion, a small island in the Indian Ocean just off the coast of Madagascar, is an extremely beautiful island! Their national airliner, Air Austral, has a wonderful logo and fleet of long haul aircrafts. I figured why not use my boredom in quarantine to complete a flight to one of North America’s busiest airports for international carriers, Los Angeles?

A slow but steep climb

Beautiful view of Reúnion as it disappears in the distance

Few hours later over Greenland using the Arctic route

Descent & approach into Los Angeles

Landing at RWY 25R at a very busy KLAX

I truly recommend this route to those who love long hauls. I won’t be doing any flights tomorrow for the health of my device though, haha!

I’ve gotten used to it and trust me even though I said it was busy, it definitely wasn’t as busy as it would be other times of the day. To me, it seemed organized for once. 😂

Also, expert server is very lonely and dry sometimes 😐 Basically a ghost town, training seems more active.

On the expert server, you just need to find the airport to fly to and there will be insane traffic.

25R isn’t a landing runway, it’s departures lol

On the training server, there’s no restrictions. The controllers direct people to land on 25R/25L more than any other runway so that’s out of my power.
