on 28 march 2010 cathay pacific opens up a brand new destination in europe – the fashion capital of the world, milan, italy! i was selected as one of the 4 pilots who will fly the first trip into milan nonstop from hong kong in one of our brand new boeing 777-300ER aircraft. it should prove to be a fun and challenging flight – especially on the return sector where we will be the only twin-engined aircraft ever to legally fly over the high terrain around mt. everest and the himalayas. but enough of that technical stuff! all of the passengers and crew i’m sure will just be worried about one (or two) things – what good food and wine to eat and where do we find all the great shopping! prada anybody? i’ll try to snap some good photos from this trip so stay tuned for my next entry from italy. ciao!
