EWR-HKG: Am I a joke to you?

Awesome thanks, definitely will fly these routes tonight.
Definitely gonna fly London to Bridgetown and San Francisco to Guam 😄
It seems, I must immediately try that route tomorrow
I am Definitely going to do Vienna to Cape Town.
Funny how the longest section in the article is about TAAG Angola’s Luanda (LAD) - Lisbon (LIS) flight yet it’s not even operated by the B772ER 🤦🏽♂️😂
You’re right 😂. But you gotta love the attention that TAAG Angola is getting.
Well, maybe I would try the Malaysia Airlines’ flight from Buenos Aires (SAEZ) to Kuala Lumpur (WMKK) nonstop, with no transit in Cape Town (FACT).
Fact: Malaysia Airlines is the first and only Southeast Asian airline that fly directly to South America with its Kuala Lumpur–Cape Town–Buenos Aires route which served from 1993–2012. @MishaCamp
Looks like it will be a fun read!
Thanks Misha! Will definitely fly some of these routes!
Ooh! I’m liking number 4!
Im gonna try London to Bridgetown
I will definitely try out these routes!! Awesome job Misha!
Will definitely try these out! Thanks @MishaCamp
“The aircraft Seattle to Luanda…”
Maybe you were gonna write the aircraft flew from seattle to luanda? anyways great work Misha! 🙃
I agree. This is a fact, especially for Malaysia Airlines, once the airline opened a route to SAEZ. In 1993, MAS reached South America when the airline received its Boeing 747 aircraft. MAS became the first airline in Southeast Asia to serve South America via its flights to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Malaysia Airlines also flew to Mexico City between 1994 and 1998 with fifth-freedom rights to carry passengers between Mexico City and Los Angeles. And then in 4th March 1997, the first production of Boeing 777-200 Extended Range (ER) destined for Malaysia Airlines came out of the Boeing Factory in Everett, Washington. Nicknamed the ‘Super Ranger’, this aircraft also bears the official registration number of 9M-MRA, signifying the country where the aircraft will be based for the next 19 years. The Super Ranger was a special aircraft to both Boeing and Malaysia Airlines. Not just the Super Ranger logo being glued proudly at the front section of the fuselage, but both parties especially Boeing wanted the world to know that its latest product can fly farther than any other commercial aircrafts at that time can do. For Malaysia Airlines, it meant a cool and prestigious marketing campaign promoting its latest product to the international market. On 2nd April 1997, that Super Ranger flew to its home base at the then Kuala Lumpur International Airport at Subang from Boeing Field in the opposite ‘long way’ direction - non-stop in an attempt to break the Great Circle Distance Without Landing record. Inside the aircraft during its extra-long, world record shattering journey were only 23 passengers instead of full 278 passengers. Executives from Boeing and Malaysia Airlines, members of the press, flight technicians and seven pilots readied up their stamina to endure the long journey to Kuala Lumpur. Instead of shorter westerly route over the northern Pacific Ocean, the aircraft flew eastwards passing over eastern Canada, the Atlantic Ocean, southern Europe, the Middle East, India and finally towards Malaysia, covering a distance of 20,044 km, or half the earth’s diameter.
WOW that’s awesome will try 👍 this from Gatwick to London
