Here we go with the 4th one, milewise the longest. SQ326 from Singapore to Frankfurt, departure time is 13:55 h. We can see all the good food & lovely drinks being loaded...

Takeoff with approx. 90 tons (200 tlbs) of fuel takes significantly longer then on these short hops.

The economy class passenger can only hope for a good inflight entertainment. And for the free drinks on board of this airline.

The Panjab plains are behind uns, now we face the Balochistan ridges. The borders of the balouchistan province were made by the british colonial gouvernment in the 19th century under ignorance of the ethnical groups present. Which is still the reason for military conflicts.

Afghanistan. Facing the same trouble: Historical home to the Pashtuns, Tajiks, Hazaras and Uzbeks it was turned in the 19th century into a buffer state in the "Great Game" between British India and the Russian Empire. As we all know the artificial borderlines between have not led to peace since then.

Wonderful flight, Gerold, in both our favourite airline.

Thank you , Bernd. Indeed, this airline is and will probably stay our (not only our) favourite.

But wait, isn't that flight leaving Singapore normally at 23:50 hours :D:D

I don´t hope so. I got the booking in front of me, and we even have an inbound connection with the same airline... :o:rollmyeyes:

You are right, I forgot that there are two flights a day to Frankfurt (I usually take the night flight) ;)

Hast du Lensflare gegen einen Blendeffekt getauscht? Damit experimentiere ich gerade etwas. Ein super Screenshot!

Now think of the "poor" sucker that goes on a standby ticket, and the last free seat was the jumpseat (in the galley, besides the toilets).

Oh, da habe ich gar nichts gemacht: Nur p3d einmal eingestellt und dann mit REX 4 TD ein paar Texturen getauscht. Meine Sonne ist "set 01", die sky colors "set 04 - July heat".

At least this seat would give you the chance of hours of small talk with the Singapore crew :wub:!

Too much darkness to enjoy openLC Europe. But at least the lights of the cities impress a lot.

I know, it takes some additional effort to do this and for me it is very much appreciated that you include it.:)

It makes an A+++ into an A+++++ !

Thanks for your comment - and your understanding, Renault. Indeed it is some work to find out about the beautiful scenery you discover during flight. But finally it is also a pleasure - just like any other travelling and learning about your destinations.

A wonderful flight Gerold which I really enjoyed.

I assume the service was first class as usual!

Thank you Martyn. Unfortunately the service today was limited - I was "home alone" and no Singpore Girl (or any other person) around. I even had to go to the supermarket during the flight to get food!
