I've decided to combine getting to know some of FTG's airlines with more training on the 757 and 767 with a 757 and 767 world tour. Currently I have 25 legs planned with thirteen different airlines across all continents (bar Antarctica), although things may well be expedited.
 
For now, leg 1 is DL167 from SEA to NRT, currently I've just left Alaskan airspace in one of DL's PW 767-300ERs.

Leg two will be NRT-HKG with an ANA 767-300 (non-ER), possibly the only non-ER 767 leg of the tour :)

Great idea for a world tour, Jessica! :thumbsup:  I'm looking forward to your screenies. If you are interested in some more 757/767 flights, you might want to have a look at our classic schedules.

Thanks Florian! I'm really looking forward to this. I want to try to do it with the modern schedules, just to see if it is still possible as these aircraft are getting old and slowly being retired now. I guess they are probably the oldest kind of aircraft now in common use across the world?

Enjoy your world tour! Depends on your definition of oldest kind of aircraft: the Cessna 172 definitely beats everybody, but for aircraft used by airliners, the 737 (OG) beats the 757/767 family and is still commonly used across the world. But the 757 and 767 are definitely getting oldies, looking forward to flying them with Icelandair this August!

Thanks for all the great comments and support guys!

 

 

The approach into Tokyp yesterday was pretty good, I was a very happy bunny after the flight. Leg 2 is NRT-HKG with ANA and the non-ER 767-300. I thought this would be an old one but no - apparently ANA were still taking delivery of these in 1995!

One of the two most proportionally beautiful airliners around (the other being the 57), nice captures!

Actually I really have to agree there! Great looking birds both of them!

I love the 767. It's such a good plane. Going to be a sad day when the line closes. Amazing shots Jessica.

In common use perhaps, though there are still quite a few 737-200s in regular service around the world. As for the oldest in regular scheduled service anywhere I think you will find the Convair CV580s operated by Air Chathams from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch to the Chatham Islands will take some beating

I was thinking in use with large airlines on major routes. Great to see the 732s 3s 4s and 5s still being used, I do love them (much more than the NG... :o :) )
