I may be going to the Philippines in a couple of months and interestingly enough one of my routing options is Denver-Frankfurt-Bangkok-Manilla. While I wouldn't normally take that routing due to length, it appears that the Frankfurt - Bangkok leg could travel very close to Mt. Everest. Since my odds of getting to Nepal anytime soon are slim I'd like to at least get a chance to see the beast, even if it is from 39K feet. Has anyone flown this route and does it pass close by Everest as it appears to do based on great circle routing?
Are there any other airline routes that anyone has flown that give a great view of Everest? Doubtful that they would work for this upcoming trip but how about K2?
