I get confused about the meaning of 了 in the sentence describing consecutive actions.
Can you guys explain the difference of meaning in two examples?

Please study Placement of 了: difference between 吃飯了 and 吃了飯
"了" in "我坐飞机去了上海。" is a verb particle that indicates the verb 去 is a completed action
"了" in "我坐飞机去上海了" is a final particle that 1. indicate the sentence has ended 2. indicates the situation has changed 3. soften the tone/ add emphasis
