I did that flight a lot of times, so you will not have any problems with it. You can use the A350 as well and the flight time is about 23 hours or less

From a quick search on FlightAware, you can find flights between the 2 locations.

Virgin Atlantic, Cathay Pacific, and British Airways all fly this route.

Is there a way I can get the fpl?

ai’m pretty sure fpltoif and simbrief all use the correct way, you’ll need to create it yourself most likely.

Ok rip I’ll try to find a way to make my own

I did this flight a couple of weeks ago, here is the flight plan I used:
2219N/11357E 2222N/11405E 2233N/11450E 2207N/10932E 2845N/12554E 2958N/12840E 3426N/14904E 3422N/17026E 3913N/20016E 4247N/23143E 4838N/26252E 4454N/30442E 5132N/34802E

I recommend add sids/stars as required.

The flight plan used IRL was VHHH 27E80 LAX JFK EGLL

Oh really? Dam they use airports as way points. Also this isn’t it bc the other grazed New York and they went past ord

Thanks I’ll use it to
