Longest Non-Stop Flight you`ve been on?

  1. For me it's Vancouver to Shanghai, which is a little over 9000 kilometers. Unfortunate part is that I was flying China Eastern, probably the worst airline I've flown.

    12.058 km, 14:45 h, Sydney - Dubai

    It won't take long till someone comes up with EWR - SIN, I suppose...

    EWR-SIN and SIN-EWR :)

    If I remember correctly, EWR-SIN over the North Pole was a longer duration, but SIN-EWR took a longer route over the Pacific.

    Does 20.3 hours in a military aircraft count ? ( with mid air refueling and two crews)

    I regularly take 13 hour flights TLV-ATL. Fortunately, because of tail winds, the return flight is a quickie 12 hours.

    ATL-CPT (8130 miles according to Great Circle Mapper). Took roughly forever on that SAA 747. The return needed a refueling stop in FLL to make it back to ATL.

    Same but in reverse.
    I was scheduled on TG JFK-BKK non-stop a few years ago but when fuel prices spiked, the flight was route was eliminated :( (panicked, found FT, rebooked on UA and now I am a junkie)

    SYD-LAX 7,488 mile (12,051 km)

    That's distance. ORD-SDF is under 300 but stuck on the tarmac in a rain storm for over two hours in a CRJ seemed longer.

    LAX-HKG is my longest. Only did that once. That one hurt

    Regularly do LAX-SYD and back and honestly don't feel that's long. All at night helps I think although I'd like to try it in J or F once.

    YYZ - DEL on AC (Sadly this flight no longer operates). 13.5 Hours. Cannot remember the mileage.

    I had another flight with 2 stops but same equipment lasting 24 hours, with no disembarkation.

    I love long flights, but have never done one, and never hope to do one in coach. When I get on the plane I just sort of get into my flight zone, read, eat, play games and sleep. It always goes by so quickly.

    Next week we fly SEA/FRA which is about 10.5 hours. I don't know what the longest really is but SEA/NRT/SIN always seems like the longest, even though I suppose that SEA/SFO/SYD/AKL is probably really the longest.

    As long as I am in my zone, I don't care.

    IAD to JNB: 8,131 miles. I think it was 16+ hrs if I recall (2008). It was non-stop on the way there, but the return JNB-IAD had a pit stop in Dakar.

    Others are ORD-PVG: 7,056 miles. PEK-IAD: 6,920 miles. Twice did SYD-LAX and return: 7,487 miles. I agree with others that the LAX-SYD rt just doesn't seem that long. The ORD-PVG trip, for some reason, seemed the longest flight ever.

    Done the same in United EconomyPlus, which was almost empty at the same time that regular Economy was sardined. I had a full row (4 or 5 seats) to lie down in.

    As a committed Coach passenger, I find that the memory of sleepless TATL nights fades pretty quickly the next day at my destination.

    LAX-ZRH at about 5900 miles, longest in time is odd - CDG-IAH with a brutal headwind took almost 14 hours

    EWR-SIN a few times. It's absolutely brutal. I believe that's the longest scheduled flight
