Exclamation LIVE TR - The UL Asian/ME B2B(s)

Its that time...again

So what started as a leisurely FRA-CGK with a 24 hour turn around for 840TP has turned into this....



So tomorrow evening I will position out to Frankfurt before the gauntlet beings

To put some perspective in - its 23,338 miles in the air....an exDUB to Hawaii is 17,524 miles
I am also doing this in one go...no hotels, no stops, no breaks. From Saturday morning to Tuesday midday I will be flying or in transit
I am aware its risky....3 B2B's - 2 in Jakarta and one in Dubai - I will be running a lot ;-)

So why?!

Well I had the single return booked with an RFS... but then I got past my usual 2500TP very quickly - and well here we are - GGL/CCR here I come!
It's 4 tickets - all rev.

LHR-FRA return
FRA-CGK return.
CGK-DXB o/w.
DXB-CGK o/w.

The maths - £1.61/TP in total or ~15+TP/hour

Over the next 4 days I will try and post my thoughts, feelings and rants along the way with pictures where possible in airports or in air WiFi
I hope UL have an extensive menu

Good luck to you -- I just returned from a much shorter DXB-CMB-CGK r/t

The menu they give you will show you both the inbound and outbound menus. 3 options per direction, and unfortunately it was the same menus as I was returning within the same week. Do try the teas though, they are outstanding

This is nothing compared to ZRH-SEA run nested with 16 segment run to Liberia that some forum members did last year
