Seen IF planes in real life?

Have any of you guys had the lucky opportunity to ever fly in or spot/take a photo of one of IFs planes in real life?

Care to share any stories or photos below?

Thanks and…

Ok, a little blurry, it’s a grab from a video taken through the window of the 737-900 I was on (United). An A380 taxiing to 28R at SFO (it went around the west end of runway 28L and 28R and taxied along the north side of 28R). Headed for Frankfurt, so it’s loaded with fuel. The takeoff roll was long and the climb was very shallow - heavy. So I whipped out my iPad and in solo mode I did the same thing in IF.

Set the weight to max and did the same taxi in the IF Lufthansa A380 then took off on 28R. Same behavior in IF, long roll and a slow climb. Was fun to do. I was somewhere over Nevada when my A380 left the IF San Francisco region.

I was very luckily on the IF Jet2 aircraft G-GDFC on my homeward bound journey DLM-GLA. All with same markings.

When I say, one of IFs planes, I mean the exact aircraft from the game in real life (Matching registrations).

Was it the exact aircraft (Registration?) or is that not known.

Very cool!

Oh, ok, good to know. I have no idea what the registration was.

After Landing it was funny as I seen the exact same Thomas Cook Boeing 757 with the registration G-WJAN. Although the IF aircraft has winglets and the real aircraft does not. So I seen two IF aircraft all in real life at the same airport

Nice photo and terrific livery. I love flying the IF equivalent of that aircraft.

Thanks :) I was really happy when I got to the flight and seen it was the exact same one in IF. :P

G-CIVY on final to JFK.

Took this photo when the plane was on final to JFK (LHR-JFK).

The registration has to be matching the one in the game.

I’ve flown on G-LCYL quite a few times from EGPH to EGLC

Not only seen, I flew with Transavia this week between CPH - EIN round trip Mon - Tue.

I flew with a KLM Boeing 737-700 from Venice to Amsterdam (and back) and a Thai Airways Airbus A380-800 from Frankfurt to Bangkok (and back).
I had also a flight from Phuket to Bangkok in a Thai 777-200, but maybe it was a 777-200ER!
But I don’t remember any of the registration numbers!

Love Transavia’s livery.
