  1. I flew on one of those but it was a united one from london-Washington Dulles and that high pitched noise bothered me so much when we took off and landed. But non the less the aircraft is very modern and I highly recommend it

  2. They can afford it because the government would still pay for the lost revenue. Unlike nonstate supported airlines who can't afford such a flight on a continuous cycle.

  3. Was that all you got for breakfast? I flew with Swiss and Lufthansa to and from HKG and I had a proper breakfast that consisted of scrambled eggs, sausages, cereal and fruit. I guess the Lufthansa group really know what they're doing!

  4. Wow man great flight report! I find I struggle to find good full reviews these days were you get to see the whole experience the terminal and like your whole journey through the airport!! You did a great job at that! Big like from me and subbed

  5. Not sure if I have commented on this video before, but it is great footage, calm and focused on the other things that happen when in an airport! Going on this flight this June. JJ30.

  6. Very nicely done. I would love to be on a flight with more than half seats unoccupied. lol. I am going to take my first 787 from YVR to DEL non stop soon. Can't wait.

  7. the aircraft is empty and so was the airport. took a long time to taxi to gate. nice view of flight. the 787 is an exotic aircraft made with all composite material. nice and light

  8. What are the chances of this happening in 2016? I read that on average flights are 85% full (not including international flights). Man I wish I was on this flight!
