KLAS-KSAN. Im going to do a few short hops around southern california first to get used to the plane. My final shorthop will end up in KLAX, and from there I will go to Tokyo.

Hopefully one that involves a runway some airtime and then a landing all without crashing would be good! Truthfully since I live on Guam (PGUM) and just did this route last month I was thinking about a PGUM-->RJAA-->KMSP. That should give me something to do.Bretthttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg

Even in my virtual FS world, I only depart from airports that I have landed at previously. So, it all depends WHEN the Queen will be up for sale. Currently, I am cruising around South America (just approaching La Paz, Bolivia, on a PSS Iberia 340-300). If she comes out tomorrow, I'll do something like Lufthansa La Paz-Bogota-Frankfurt. If she comes out some days later, who knows where I'll be, I may do a Santiago-Buenos Aires-Frankfurt on LH, or a Buenos Aires-Madrid on IB, or a Rio de Janeiro-Paris CDG on AF, or a Mexico-Amsterdam on KL... But in any case, I am trying to head home (Paris), so that I get there BEFORE she gets released, just to be ready to do one of the shortest real-world scheduled 747-400 flights: Paris ORY-Ajaccio, Air France. Love to do a short hop, just to get some training.After that, I already researched all the scheduled 747-400 routes in the world, so I may actually just go to my spreadsheet and random-pick one route - that will ensure a maximum diversity of liveries and airports!

I havent decided...If there will be a thai livery I would like to do the Bangkok (VTBD) to Phuket (VTSP) run, which was the last time I travelled in a 744.Otherwise, RJTT (Tokyo Haneda) to RJFF (Fukuoka) with ANA.Once I am confident of my abilities, I will attmept a longer flight, such as KSFO-KIAD then KLAX-VHHH or ..... Geez I ahve no idea....wait till ti comes first.The problem with these long haulers, you don't have the time to do a flight through and through.Even with the good-ol 747-200 RFP I only once managed a long haul flight from Dar es sallam to Luxembourg.
