Flying To Bhutan

Flying to Bhutan is no easy feat.  The country has two airlines, the national carrier Royal Bhutan Airlines, aka Druk Air and Bhutan Airlines, the latter being a relatively new privately operated carrier.  If you are considering a trip to Bhutan, you must factor in the cost of this extra airfare, unless you are lucky enough to be flying in direct from Bangkok, Singapore, Kathmandu or a few places in India (check out the Druk Air schedule here).

About two months ago, I was aboard one of Virgin’s A340-600s, setting sail from Hong Kong to London.  As usual mid-flight, I was struck by blogging inspiration and was furiously tapping away a review on my iPhone.  It went something along the lines of ‘shabby, ropey and rough around the edges’.  I never published the review as I suddenly remembered Virgin were swapping them over for a shiny new Dreamliner.
