Flight Routing Question (from UK)

Fri Sep 30, 2005 1:08 am

Just a few things..
If you were flying on the following routes, where would you fly over (i.e. major cities etc):
Newcastle-Corfu
Newcastle-New York
Manchester-Toronto
Manchester-Calgary
Manchester-Bourgas

Apologies for the vagueness  Wink

Unfortunately, there is no simple answer as it differs from day to day due to wind / ATC restrictions, etc... particularly for North Atlantic routes.

A "typical" NCL-CFU flight will route south towards Manchester and Birmingham, then down over London, across the channel to France then down towards Switzerland / Italy onto Croatia (Pula) across the Adriatic sea to Italy then down towards Brindisi then across the Straight of Otranto (between Adriatic and Ionian Seas) to Corfu.
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

Manchester-Calgary:

Of course this varies with wind but you should expect to route south of Reykjavik, fly over a fair bit of the south of Greenland, over Hudson bay. In the summer flying back east you can watch the sun follow you across the North Pole!

Manchester-Calgary:
If you´re lucky you´ll get:
- a glimpse of Belfast.
- views of Iceland, if not covered in clouds
- views of Greenland in white - Just a great sight ! Get a window seat facing north !

- vast lands in Canada west of Hudson Bay / James Bay.

For flights of U.S. East Coast:
- a lot of hills and woods (probably best in winter) in New Foundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Maine etc.


Flights from NCL to the U.S. might get you over the Glasgow to Edinburgh stretch (but depending on weather).

MAN - BOI:
roughly via AMS, DUS, VIE, BUD.
