Choosing from more than 180 different routes British Airways pilots have selected their top 10 views from the air.
1) NORTHERN LIGHTS - NORTH AMERICA
– Captain Dave Willsher
If you're not already asleep this is an amazing sight three to four hours into most long North America flights. Well worth staying up for!
2) CENTRAL LONDON - APPROACH TO HEATHROW
– Captain Mark Mannering-Smith
Most flights approach Heathrow from the east - a great opportunity to get an unbeatable view of London. A perfect welcome to London.
3) MONT BLANC - PISA
– First Officer Caroline Robinson
A breathtaking view of the Alps and especially of Mont Blanc that comes around an hour into this two hour flight.
4) SYDNEY HARBOUR
– Captain Derek May
When leaving Sydney, sit on the right hand side of the aircraft to get the best views of Sydney Harbour.
5) GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE, ALCATRAZ AND BAY - SAN FRANCISCO
– Captain Simon Scholey
Great whichever side of the aircraft you're on for flights departing San Francisco. You get great views of the bridge on the left hand side of the aircraft, Alcatraz from the right, and the bay from both!
– Senior First Officer Peter Nye
Greenland is visually stunning. The tips of mountains can be seen poking through the snow which is over a mile deep. Occasionally you will be able to see icebergs carving off glaciers around the coast.
7) VENETIAN CANALS - VENICE
– First Officer Joanne Tait
This is especially good on a departure to the North East as you circle back over the city.
8) CAPE TOWN - TABLE MOUNTAIN
– Senior First Officer Kate Laidler
On early morning arrivals from the North it's great for Table Mountain and the bay.
– Captain Al Bridger, British Airways
A terrific approach into Dubrovnik over the bay to the North East.
10) MOUNT FUJI
– Captain Chris Hanson
Whether arriving or departing from Tokyo (Narita) you can see Mount Fuji sticking out of the clouds.
