Although not the first one to write from 37,000 feet, it's a first for me.
I am halfway throught the flight from MUC to JFK of today, July 7.
D-AIGK ( 340 - 300)
Took off at 3:51 local time ( 21 mijnutes late)
Estimated arrival time 6:40 p.m. local time
The latest info from the F/O is that we will be using 31R for landing and that numerous cranes arfe operating at JFK (I suppose we have almost finished the AA terminal then)
Wind direction is 040 and is at 10 km/h. Clouds 8/8 ( overcast) and 600 meters height.
Visibiility is 16 Km.
We are flying outside the 6 main Atlantic "highways: with a routing that took us to the southernmost tip of Greenland. Incredible view over the land with no clouds and thousands of icebergs dloating in the water.
On board life is easy, Y is packed solid, C is almost full and in F we are 4 people. A glass of 1989 Champagne Henriot cuvee des enchanteleurs is keeping me company. well, I spoke too soon...a mild turbolence is here...anyhow... I hope to provide more updates later. Cheers!
