Ultra Long Haul endeavour: KLAX-HKJK

I hadn’t tried an ultra long-haul flight before, so I decided to challenge myself, and it went pretty well. The B77L is a powerhouse when it comes to these kinds of endeavours, and i would very much like it if the A350-900ULR is added to the game as well. It seems like fpltoif overestimated the fuel, but maybe it’s just strong tailwinds at certain stages of the flight that reduced fuel consumption. I am also still learning how to stabilise the aircraft after disconnecting it from the autopilot in APPR mode. When I did this, it lurched forward and lost a few feet. Thankfully, I was able to get it under control just before touchdown. I am also still learning how to flare on landing. Other than that, I really enjoyed doing an ultra long-haul route and will do one very soon. I’m thinking of SIN-EWR on the A359.
