Going on from Munich we had the chance to choose the best airline of all. Well, it is a long flight, why should we go with some other?

Climbing out of the 08L...

... to reach the initial FL350 just before Vienna. FTs scenery does not blend perfectly into FTXG.

Later that day... the Caucasus. Already powdered.

The russian Republic of Dagestan with Chirkey Lake below and the Caspian Sea ahead.

Over Afghanistan / Pakistan we came into darkness. And India even presented thunderstorms - we had to divert.

"Shortly" after the next day came out, somewhere over the Indian Ocean.

Here we descend over Malaysia...

... and turn towards our destination.

This is it, still flying downwind...

... the Localizer came alive, ...

... and here we were established towards the 20C. I think the 20L is still mudland?

Left the runway after a successful landing...

Singers just looks great now.

Slowly moving into the parking lot...

... and finally we were ready for deboarding.

Where to go now?

Ah, here´s the luggage belt!

Singapore is a great hub, with direct connections to nearly all major airports on this planet.

We have booked exactly this flight for next years holiday with our children, so I was totally forced to prepare it in the sim. For me this enhances the pleasure of travelling a lot!

I hear amazing things about Singapore air , maybe someday . Domestically for me JetBlue is my airline of choice when I visit my daughter back in Maine , there "Mint Class" really is something special . Anyway I enjoyed the shots and trip Capt. Gerold . :):)

I'm currently flying 9V-SVV from SFO to HKG and I must say, you left her in a very good shape for me. Excellent, Gerold. And you took some really good photos.

Good to here a domestic recommendation, you never know when you need it. And the intercontinental recommendation is already given in this post...

I´m happy you enjoyed travelling with "me".

I knew you´ll like the 777 close-ups, Lars.

What I did not guess that you´ll take over 9V-SVV to bring her back to Asia. Maybe we even meet virtually soon?

I was surprised how short that night was during the flight, just from -stan to the malayaian sea! And the morning view in motion from the cockpit... so good.

Brilliant set Gerold and nicely narrated too.

Still the best airline I have flown on with Lauda a close second.

On my last TG flight we flew just east of Singapore but no photos as it was 2am!

A fantastic sight all lit up.

Hey Gerold. Surpasses even your normal high standards. It was totally immersive, so now I don't have to make the flight and thus have saved a ton of money. Thanks!

Excellent flight Gerold! I love the night shots :)

Thank you Paul. It really was a short period of darkness, I think coming closer to the equator addad to the speed of plane and earth rotation.

Nice Gerold, nice to see the real again with the Orbx.  Is that Orbx's Singapore?  If not who makes it?

Thank you Jack. In this case there is no need for Orbx to work, someone else has taken the market already.

Haha, it makes me smile to see you saved money! You can report this to your boss and release some more investment in Orbx sceneries!

Once I have done the flight in real I will add some photos of the food & drinks on board, just to enhance the immersion.

Thank you for the comments Martyn. I can totally share your opinion, I was totally impressed by the Lauda service on my first Australia flights, too. The food would still be top class today, though the cabin would now be outdated. I´ll report the current Singapore next year!

I can imagine this to be a fantastic view. A pity that you don´t have photos!
