Does anyone know the routing for LH454 flight from Frankfurt to San Francisco? I was on this flight on 18th Dec and our captain announced that we have reached a latitude of 78N over Greenland (as I remember, we flew frankfurt-denmark-greenland-northern territories-vancouver-portland-sfo).
Any details on the flightplan perhaps?

Regards,
Jer


I seriously think I just creamed my pants without any influence from any outside variables.

hi,

I can check the flight plans of all LH flights, but 18th Dec is too long ago!

But most of the flights go pretty far to the north! I flew the same route in October and we were N78, too! So, should work out! I mean, you saw the airshow where you flew, or not?
But the routing sounds good to me! Makes sense...

Very roughly, Great Circle Mapper shows a most northerly point of about 70 degrees, so 78 doesn't seem infeasible given variations due to weather, atmospheric conditions, traffic, etc. Vancouver (both of them) seem(s) a little out the way though.

Maximum latitude for the "great circle" turns out to be 67.2 deg.

on a westerly route you fly usually a lot more to the north because of the strong jetstreams over the nord atlantic comming from the west.... So, if you fly at N78 or so, you wont be in those jetstreams at all....

On the flight back to Europe you fly in lower Latitudes because then you want to be in the jetstream with the good tailwind.... Thats why the flight back home for me (to Germany) is always faster than going to the US  Wink/being sarcastic)
