Although I don’t mind turbulence, night flights are fun because the lack of sun-induced atmospheric convection often improves visibility and makes the ride smoother than the smoothest road you can imagine. Experiencing travel withdrawal this evening, a night departure from Newark Liberty International (EWR) to Hong Kong (HKG) came to mind.

That Cathay Pacific 777-300 flight afforded memorable views of Manhattan Island as it flew up the Hudson River.

Recalling that flight is refreshing. Perhaps you recall a favorite night flight.
