Pictorial Report - United Airlines JFK-LAX-SYD-MEL UA27 and UA839

I am simply putting this next trip report in pictures. I have been running late blogging this stuff so some of the minor details have slipped my mind anyway! This post covers my journey home from New York to Melbourne on United Airlines Flight 28, p.s service Boeing 757-200 (New York JFK to Los Angeles) and United Flight 839 Boeing 747-400 from Los Angeles to Melbourne via Sydney.

taxi'ing out I spot a Jet (9W) A330-200 - i think they fly in from India via Brussels?

  1. Many Thanks ! We're leaving for sydney next week, had qantas and emirates before and the flight was never boring. This is our first time using UA, read all the harrowing experiences and negative feedbacks about UA flights to the land down under, very close of cancelling our tickets BUT after viewing this we're ready to GO. Just hope you're not working for UA. Keep up the GOOD WORK ! AndrewVM010784
