FS2004 Trans-Atlantic Flights...in Non-wides?

Thu Nov 18, 2004 11:58 am

Has anyone around here ever flown a non-widebody jet across the atlantic, or pacific in FS before?, such as a Learjet 45, or a Boeing 737-400?

If you have, tell me about it.

I once flew an AC A319 on YUL-MAN, as well as a Cessna Citation X from YHU-INN, on FS2004. I departed with a full fuel load to make sure I would make it across, the A319 had approx. 30% of fuel left when I arrived in Manchester and the Citation X 8%.

I already flew once JFK to TLV with an EL AL B757.
It took me quiet a long time to get there.

Yep- I've taken a BBJ from JFK-STN, a Jetstar II from IAD-SNN, and a 757 from DUB-YHZ. The only aircraft I've taken across the Pacific have been widebodies- namely the POSKY 747s and A340s. Now that I think of it, I have yet to take a widebody across the pond in FS9... maybe something to do over the weekend  Big grin

I have flown SNN-YYT in the A319 which made it with plenty of fuel to spare, being one of the shortest transatlantics possible.

People who fly for Continental VA's do with the 757-200 Big grin

The longest I flew sitting in my chair for the entire time was less than 2 hours, not including all those goof-off flights in Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Pittsburgh, and St. Maartin Big grin
