This was the air route planned for my flight from Abu Dhabi to Dublin last week. The route prepared by the Jeppesen is normally the shortest flight time and the minimum fuel requirement to reach the destination after reviewing the weather forecast for the most advantages wind component. The solid thick black line is the Great Circle line, the shortest distance between two points on the surface of the Earth and the red line is the route that we flew, following the Airways. My airline is a customer of Jeppesen who plot the route and prepare the flight plan on each flight.
Here are the pictures of the routes back ,DUB to AUH which I saved in googles earth format. Easier to refer now, less opening up of airways charts. The thumbtack points are the waypoints on the airways chart, BIG is a waypoint overhead London City.

Jenama untuk pen, barangan kulit, perhiasan, jam dan minyak wangi ini berasal dari nama gunung yang tertinggi di banjaran Alps, iaitu 4810 m atau 15,781 kaki dari aras laut. Ia terletak betul betul di sempadan antara dua negara Italy dan France. Bandaraya yang paling hampir adalah Geneva ,Switzerland dan saya sempat menganbil gambar gambar gunung tersebut semasa hendak mendarat di lapanganterbang Geneva.
