No idea why anyone would use statute miles as a measurement of distance on an international aviation forum. The great circle distance is under 8000 nm, the city pair is close enough the same as LHR-PER. QF have operated flights in excess of 9000 mm. Bit pedantic? Not everyone on here is a pilot lik...Jump to post
Wouldn't this flight be ETOPS restricted so wouldn't go over Antartica?? Actual route may not take it directly over Antarctica.

SAA/SAL served JFK for years, and in the 1980s (I was a teenager) I seem to recall they used the old AA Terminal and I don't think they flew the -SP.
