Looking for a short route to fly with a big plane

Recommended Posts

I have flow a lot of planes in FS9 and up until now the biggest plane I flown is the 757 but now I want to fly something bigger. I don't like to fly long haul so I am looking for a real world route that I can fly in the sim that is about 3 to 3 and a half hours long that is flown with something bigger than a 757. Got any suggestions?


Sorry about the multiple posts I don't know what happened

Avianca used to have various shorthaul routes from SKBO in the A332, such as KMIA, SPIM (these two are right for your time frame), SVMI and even SKCL and SKRG.

 

Emirates and Singapore should have also some short haul routes from their hubs. They have nothing smaller than an A332. Hope this helps.

XP11 Vulkan installed, but not yet tried. Will MSFS2020 run? If so, what do I do with 5 sims then?

First thing that comes to mind is ANZ135/136- it's three hours each way between Brisbane and Auckland. The flight is normally operated by either a 777-200ER or a 77W, and occasionally they'll send a 744 or 767. 

 

Another one I just came up with is Seattle to Los Angeles- that takes about 2h40m. 


Thanks,

Try anything with ANA/JAL/Cathay Pacific/Singapore Airlines that's intra-South East Asia. You'll find loads of 747/777 lines under 3 hours..

 

eg. WSSS-WADD, 2h30m operated by an SQ 772.

I've just done Lufthansa Cargo DLH8399 from Beijing to Incheon in the MD11F, which is a RW route. About 90 minutes. Was going to go in a 73, but saw that flight come up and the MD trumps a 73bus any day.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, some real good suggestions! I just thought of something else I could fly. I could download the Posky Air Force 1 model and fly that. That plane flies short routes all the time!

I've been on 777 and 747 flights from Tokyo to Taipei. Japan Airlines and All Nippon have also both flown long-haul jets on short domestic routes like Tokyo to Osaka, for instance.
