Hello,

I would like to join the tour and follow the original route as close as possible. According to https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Around_the_World_in_Eighty_Days the original stops were: London – Paris – Turin – Brindisi – Suez – Aden – Bombay - Allahabad - Calcutta - Singapore - Hong Kong – Shanghai – Yokohama - San Francisco– Salt Lake City – Medicine Bow – Omaha – Chicago – New York City – Queenstown – Dublin – Liverpool – London.

 

I have to add 3 additional refueling stops: Yelinzovo, Cold Bay and Gander.

 

My specs: X-Plane 11 on Win 10Pro,  B737-300 Classic (by IXEG), Boeing House Livery (by MB Liveries), online (FSCloud.net) and offline.
