tdgeek:networkn: Anyone know how I can tell what route NZ to Singapore, Singapore to Milan takes? I recently won a trip and am feeling a little anxious and I am not the best flyer at the best of times?
Try http://flightaware.com I recall that was what I read. Go to the Airline Flight Tracker on the left, and on the right are the waypoints. It has a map with the route
If you know the flight numbers, you can get the info you need based on the expected flight plan
I found http://www.flightradar24.com/ easier to use overall.
From memory the only area of potential and occasional conflict is the Spratly Islands and some other areas in the south china sea. Iirc: conflict so far has been minor naval things with firehoses and such and some very small fishing boats sunk, China has mapped some of the area as a restricted air zone, which the US military ignores. I would guess civilian air traffic stays away but don't know. Interestingly, it appears to me (unconfirmed) carriers taking US advice were staying away from the Ukraine/Millitia/Russia conflict areas, but others were continuing.
