I have a flight with the routing of YYZ-ORD-NRT-SYD coming up in February. I am just wondering what the flight plan will be. Wil I fly uo over Alaska and down or what. Even if you can help with one segment that would be great.
P.S. if this is in the wrong fourm just tell me.
Where will you spend eternity? He,s more real then you think!!!!!

Are you doing a Circle Pacific with Star Alliance? I am doing PHL-SFO-NRT-SIN-SYD-LAX-PHL on UA and SQ also in February. Are you on the same carriers? Leaving from ORD you probably will fly over Alaska. Eventhough they pull the shades down, go the emergency door and look out the window. It is a fantastic view !

Why would you look suspicious? People do it all the time. I know I do.
They close the blinds because for half of your flight it'll be bright outside, and they don't want it so that people are woken up by the bright light. You should see sunrise on your flight. You are almost certainly going to fly through Alaska, although I think once in a long while they might flight right under it (i.e. South), but I don't think that's common in the winter.
Quoting AirbusfanYYZ (Reply 5): However on the return we flew straight across the Pacific. All on SQ772s so I assume the routing is based on prevailing winds.
Yeah, you're probably riding the jetstream flying through Pacific.
