777 Routes

Recommended Posts

What are your favorite routes to fly in the 777? I need ideas.

Also, what are some short routes (around 2-4 hours) as I would like to fly this plane short haul as well as long haul.

 

Thanks

Definitely EGLL-KJFK and back, as for short routes pretty much all of Emirates routes that are 2-4 hours are done in the 777, so just take a look at any Emirates routes.

If you want really short, Emirates flies the 77W between Dubai and Doha, but also lots of other short routes in their network.

Aerologic also has some nice ones such as Leipzig-Frankfurt, Nottingham, etc.

If you're looking real world, KLM EHAM-HECA is a good one but there is a shortage of good Cairo scenery (and AS Amsterdam has sort of had its day too, I think. Great for its time though).

By Nottingham, do you mean East Midlands? (It's my local)

Montreal CYUL - Toronto CYYZ is a nice short little hop that is sometimes operated by Air Canada 77W. That one gets my geographically biased vote.

ENGX, I do!

 

Yeah, I prefer citynames over airportnames, haha.

I always bugs me if somebody says xyz airport and I don't know which one is meant. :D

I like to pick routes based on my own flight experience and locations that I've visited.  Bring back memories of interesting places and times.

Try UAE105 (Dubai-Athens, OMDB-LGAV, approximate flight time is 4 hours -depending on the aloft winds- and there are great FlightTampa sceneries for these two airports, Emirates operate both 777-200LR and -300ER for this route)

There are multiple 777 and/or 787 flights between Vancouver and Toronto. Thats what comes to my mind first.

AAL moves 77W's between KDFW and KMIA, primarily repositioning for the So American flights so you don't see them often but I've caught a glimpse of a few on FlightAware. These are pretty short trips maybe 2 hr.

Hi, 

 

I use these documents with real information with the companies that have 777 in their fleet (AVSIM Library, search it as: "Boeing 777 Route Database Version 1 - June 2015"). 
 
I hope it helps you with your flights  :wink:  :smile:

Using city names can be very confusing if that isn't the airport's name. Nottingham Airport is actually EGBN, at Tollerton. EGNX is East Midlands Airport. It's nearer to Derby than Nottingham.

Any route to and from Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok (VHHH), especially with a scenery package like Taxi2Gate, is terrific.

Try VHHH-RJBB Kansai; VHHH-RJTT Haneda; VHHH-WADD Denpasar Bali.

Also TNCM (St Maarten) or KMIA (Miami) to SEQM Quito is a must, with high altitude approach into Runway 36 at Quito. Make sure you switch to terrain when descending.

Some fun routes I love to do using PACOTS...

KIAH-RJAA/RJTT
KSFO-RJAA/RJTT

They're very fun and it tests your flight planning abilities! Lots of ETOPS Alts to choosefrom for all ETOPS restrictions.
