Well the day yesterday turned out to be a major disappointment. It started off warm and sunny, and then gusts of wind, dark skies, followed by the most horrible rain ever! I managed to get two of these beauties,
which were landing on Rwy 24R while I was at Rwy23 which was being used actively for take offs, with just the baby A319, A320s and there was just one LAN Chile departing which I managed to quickly snap before I jumped on the transit bus which would take me to Rwy 24R, which I passed earlier but decided to carry on to Rwy 23 instead. Rwy 23 is usually the most active and I was desperate to nail the Etihad Boeing 777-300ER which just started the afternoon arrivals with the start of the summer schedule about a month ago. The Etihad 777-300ER has got to be one of the nicest looking jets out there. And then there was a lot of buzz too with the arrival of the EK A380 on June 1st. Heaven knows how many spotters will be out there to commemorate the arrival of this beast for the first time to Toronto.
This MH 744 from Skymarks is the latest purchase, and which now completes my Malaysian Airlines fleet of aircraft which I have flown on, namely the Boeing 747-400 (LAX-TPE-KUL v.v), the A330-300 (KUL-KHI v.v) and the Boeing 777-200ER (EWR-DXB-KUL v.v)Malaysia Airlines happens to also be my favourite airline with who I believe has the World's Best Cabin Crew, which is also no surprise considering Skytrax has voted them the best for the past many years. They have the most genuinely warm, friendly crew with service from the heart. I'm so glad to have flown them consecutively for two years both via the Pacific from Los Angeles and via the Atlantic from New York.
