Video: Endless views! Air Greenland helicopter flight from Nuuk to remote mining sites

Video: Endless views! Air Greenland helicopter flight from Nuuk to remote mining sites

In this video we climb aboard an Air Greenland AS350 helicopter and take a 45 minute flight from Nuuk towards the south. We get rare access to an anorthosite mine prospecting camp and see how Air Greenland’s helicopter pilots are critical to its operation.

We get a look at how the helicopters “sling” big bags of rock from a drill site down the valley for analysis. We also visit a nearby ruby mine to refuel before heading back to Nuuk. Along the way we get incredible, epic views of mountains, glaciers and fjords – so many that we lose count. So kick back and take a ride with us around a piece of the beautiful country of Greenland.

In this video we take a ride on Etihad’s lovely 787-10 from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi on EY78. Along the way we can’t figure out how to get our connecting boarding pass at Schiphol Airport; we have a chat with the Captain before departure; we get some beautiful views of Holland on the climb out; we test out the Etihad Business Studio seat, service, food and entertainment options; and we enjoy a scenic sunset descent over Iran and the Gulf.

Video: How does SAS transatlantic business class stack up these days

In this video we take a 9+ hour flight onboard Scandinavian Airlines A330 business class from Stockholm (ARN) to Newark (EWR). SAS cut a lot of onboard service and all its long-haul out of Stockholm during the pandemic so it’s nice to see both things coming back, little by little.
