For years I have been wanting to visit the Far East. The furthest east I have ever travelled is LCA (Larnaca) in Cyprus, so to get the opportunity to visit Hong Kong, Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo all in the space of a fortnight I naturally couldn’t say no!
The second flight was a multi-stop flight to Osaka, the routing being HKG-TPE-KIX. The flight delayed over an hour due to a heavy thunderstorm which had been in the area for over 24 hours causing a delay to the inbound aircraft from BKK.
After departing it was a slow climb through/around the CB’s which meant we could only claw back 5 minutes of our delay.
We then stayed onboard the aircraft for the second leg, TPE-KIX which follows in the next video.
