Today with Basel being the hub, I was able to find a seasonal transatlantic route operated by Air Transat, which previously used their A310’s, before updating and slightly downsizing to their A321-XLR. Today I flew this route using the Generic A321 as an overnight flight, it took me 6¾ hours, it’s amazing how far the A321 can actually travel, and what routes can be flown with them!
@Marc have you been able to spot one of Air Transat’s transatlantic flights to Basel? 😮
Aircraft & Livery: Airbus A321 // Generic (in place of Air Transat)
Route: Montreal CYUL - Basel LFSB
Flight Time: 6:45
Anyway, to the shots! I can’t call myself the best editor, but with a 2½ hour car journey and nothing but a phone with 6,100 hours of Infinite Flight on it and an insufficient connection, I couldn’t resist it.
Parked at the Gate (Gate 58) in Montreal

Let me know what you think of these shots, and also if you think the Generic is an underrated livery.
A special thanks to the controllers for providing a great service to the ground!
