Hi There

I've flown from Kuala Lumpur to Perth which is pretty much the same route. You will fly pretty much over western Asia including Jakarta and from there its mostly ocean. You can see the coast of Australia once you are close to Geraldton (this is about 550km north of Perth). Thats about it really. Depending on the weather conditions you will land on either runway 21 or 03. 03 is better because you get a good view of the city. You will fly down the coast and turn inland about 15km south of the Perth city centre. Its a spectacular view as long as its not cloudy on the day when you fly in.

Hope this helps

Regards

Greg

P.S. I live in Perth so if you want any info on the city let me know :-)

I'm not sure what airline you are flying, although I will assume it's BA (could also be QF or Singapore - that would be fun; a choice of 777s/340s on SIN-PER).
Anyway, as Luftaom pointed out, the most likely route is across Central Europe, over Germany, Austria, Romania, Turkey, Iran, India, across the Bay of Bengal, down the Straits of Malacca and its first left after K.L.; you can't miss it. Show the crew the map in the inflight mag if they're having a problem!!

Alternatively, you can fly over Northern Europe - Berlin, Warsaw, into Russia, south of Moscow, turning down towards a place called Aktyubinsk, then towards India, rejoining the route from there to Singapore.
Stay awake over India, as there's sometimes some fairly spectacular t/storms and the clouds can just light up every few seconds. I flew QF on this route in '93.

I also flew the SIN-PER sector with QF on a 767, although unfortunately it was overnight, for a 2.00 am arrival (QF78). It's a nice five hour sector and again, it's as was pointed out, it's right down the Australian coast, so a left side window seat would be best.

Again, if it takes a lot longer than that and you start seeing icebergs and penguins, I'd start sending notes to the cockpit!

(Honestly, I'm trying to kick the happy pills!)

Hi

Thanks for all the info.

I forgot to mention that I'm flying Singapore Airlines, 744 from LHR to SIN, A340 SIN to PER and I think, hopefully a 777 from PER to SIN.

On my return I think I will get a story drafted up and let you all hear it.

I might see you at the airport Greig, I'm planning to spend some time there, in between seeing the relatives  . I'm also off to Sydney on Anset A320.

Thanks again.

Granite, This sounds like a great trip. Make sure to let us know how it goes. Oh yes, BTW how are you coming to London from Aberdeen. I take it you are flying - if so which airline?

Hi

Yes, I'm flying to Heathrow with BA.

Not sure which aircraft, either 734, 757 or A320.

Maybe you can tell me.......can you transfer from T1 to T3 by walking, rather than taking the bus?

Hello Gary.

Yes you can transfer from T1 to T3, but it's quite a hike.

Follow the signs to the Underground, and then instead of going to the station itself (you may have to though) follow the signs to T3. There is a moving walkway if you get tired.

Alternatively, you could go outside T1 and walk, but this is not advisable, due to the many roads you must cross.

I usually take the bus.

I look forward to reading your report from Aberdeen to Perth.

Take Care.

Hi Granite,
I don't know how long uou'll be in LHR, but if you have time I would suggest going up to the observation area. This is right above T2 and you can actually get there through various covered walkways and passageways. Go to the far end of T1, past the BA desk and outside; follow the signs to T2 and you will see signs also for the Spectators' Terrace. When you get up there, there is a very good aviation shop called Mach III, which has all kinds of books, magazines, postcards, models etc.

Enjoy your trip! This is one report I'll be looking forward to!
