I think this flight is definitely one of the most interesting flight, but I guess it's not too profitable because less pax flying, not everyone like sitting 15hrs on the same seat and they are now cutting the sechdule from 7 days to 4days.

If you want to be cool, you can search for your flight at flightview.com and plot the approx. NAVAIDS.

Depend on the wind, sometimes it's polar, sometimes it's completely not.

They have cut from daily to about four per week. One of those arrived 12 hours late on Sunday !!!

Hope all goes well for your flight.
