My Top 10 flight experience in 2016
As 2016 came to an end, it is time to review of my flight activities this year. I have flown about 130 sectors this year, adding another 200,000 miles to my flying logbook.
Here are the most memorable and outstanding 10 flights I have flown in 2016.
The ranking is totally subjective and personal! I rank them by the amount of pleasure provided to me and how much I have enjoyed the flight.
Not every day you come across an opportunity to fly in a private jet in total privacy. Definitely memorable!
It was another excellent flight in First Class Apartment, in particular the service delivery was perfect.
AZAL is an unusual airline and its A340-500 is difficult to catch. I was glad to fly her to Baku and witnessed a beautiful sunset overwing. There is even an in-flight bar in Business Class!
Qantas has a solid First Class Product! I am proud to fly the Australian Airline back home for a visit. The food was totally Australian flavours and crew was straight down to the earth to help me enjoy the flight even more!
Staying in the cockpit and watch the pilot land the B727 in bad visibility and rainy weather. It was one of the most smooth landing, watch the video and you'll agree.
In Dec 2015, I made a failed attempt to fly the Korean Air B747-8, it was changed to B747-400. This December I made another attempt and I was rewarded handsomely. Not only I was the only passenger on this flight in First Class, I received the most polite and practically faultless service by Korean Air!
This was my last time flying the Iran Air B747-SP. It was a splendid flight from the most kind and friendly crew. I missed it so much. Our flight was light, we climbed straight to 39,000 feet after takeoff in one go!
I could never forget watching the amazing JT9D engines in-flight and sitting up in the cockpit watching the SP cruising at Mach 0.88!
I have my best airplane meal ever on this flight!
La Première is an exceptional experience! I think Air France have a seriously wonderful First Class product that rivals any airline out there if not better. The attention and exclusivity was second to none, I was taken great care of in every process from transfer to the lounge, from onboard till arrival. The seat has an elegant design offering full privacy, with your own "bubble" area without the confined wall or cubicles.
Salon La Première is a destination of its own and the BEST First Class Lounge I've experienced.
A truly unique and bespoke travel experience, delivered with complete discretion and limitless hospitality.
There's nothing quite like it! It has to be the BEST commercial airline travel I've done up to this day. Etihad team delivered a faultless travel experience. Every step of the travel is being taken care of. I think my photo and video have described the product well.
