Hey, EGPH - EGLL. Flown 112 times a week IRL. British Airways A32X. It’s a nice route because… It is.

LFPO-FMEE with French Bee A350. The scenery is great!

I feel like most of my routes in 2020 will be long haul and ultra long haul with the a350 coming out and the 777 series being reworked!

Any flight with an a350 or a 777 is definitely what I’ll be doing in 2020 and I need to look up some good routes to fly with both aircraft.

FMEE - LFPO
A350 French Bee
~ 11-12h

Arrived in Paris as I write this, it was an amazing route, with seriously stunning scenery. Mid Africa is absolutely unique, u only get to see that variety there. Nice and calm route, good lengh for overnight flights, certainly gonna be one of my first A350 flights!

(totally very unbiased even though it might seem so because i love LH and the A350, while living in Canada and from Bermuda but i swear these isn’t biased)

LH494

EDDM -> CYYZ (no biased because i like LH and im from toronto)

LH A350

Unable FPL due to route retired for winter

BA2233

EGKK -> TXKF (London Gatwick -> St Georges, Bermuda (( Home of me and another member whom i forget))

BA 77W

From EDDF to YPAD with a stop in OTBD with a A333 Qatar Airways, i will fly it in real life and im IF because it is so awesome, flying over europe, getting into the dessert above Turkey, then flying around syria before descend above the water, smooth touchdown in Doha and then after 3 hours back into the sky, only once crossing the desert again, after a lot of water you will see india on the horizon, and the next thing after hours will be Australia, and that is a stunning country, descend over the city of Adelaide before touchdown on the other side of the world

Route: EGLL-LSZH/LSGG
Airline: BA or LX
Aircraft: BA (A320family) and LX to LSGG: A220 to LSZH A220/A320family and very rarely the B77W.
Notes: Short about 1h 30min Route taking you from the UK via the Channel and France to the beautiful alps!

Route: LSZH/LSGG-LPPT
Airline: SWISS or TAP
Aircraft: A320 family (and LX A220s from GVA)
Notes: About 2h to 2h 45 mins route taking you from the breathtaking Alps across France and the beautiful Pyrenees across amazing Spain towards absolutely stunning Portugal for a fantastic approach into Lisboa!

From EGLL - VTBS
Nice route, very scenic and landing/approach is fun!

If you’re up for a challenge (sort of) but more an annoyance KPDX-YBBN via PHNL and NTAA (PDX-HNL-PPT-BNE) with the A318/19/20/21, 737-7/8/9, or 757. Its 7942nm in length and took me about 17.5hrs to complete but has some beautiful approaches into PHNL and NTAA. Here is the flight plan:
