to celebrate the world longest commerical flight, i decided to fly the same route.

The flight was uneventful until just outside of CA, where weather turned extremely bad. Speed was varying by about 10 knots throught out the decent. Turbulence was severe. Cross wind is about 40 knots. Very rough approach into LAX 25R. Funny thing happened just prior to landing. After contacting the tower for clearance to land. I guess the weather updated itself again. The weather turned into clear. The tower instead of cleared me to land on 25R, decided to clear me to left leg pattern to land on 7L. So I bypassed instruction and landed on 25R instead (too late for me to do anything).

So while taxiing to the gate, I kept on hearing "XX you are not cleared to land, clear the runway). All of AI traffic was landing on 25R and ran into the same problem i had. Funny thing is that the departing traffic is departing on 7R. So I had numerous witness tons of mid-air collision yesterday.

total flight time 15 hours and 17 minutes. Tonight i will try KLAX-WSSS run on SQ19.

Wow! Now that's one ridiculously long flight! I think my longest was probably 10-11 hours KSFO-Taipai!

I did LGW to Melbourne non stop in a 747 400 of wantas (Qantas i know, but that show everyone is spelling it)

With real time, but just about final, my comp started to act up and i lost my front wheel on landing (eeek), but i got my pax there.

Took off atabout 2pm, and landed at around 10am the next day

Do you guys leave it there and go about your business or do you sit there the majority of the time when you are flying long flights

Go big or go home

Know what you mean guys! I do Singapore - EHAM occasionally - late at night. 13 hours and 5 minutes depending on weather. Set the alarm next morning so that I can have breakfast before the T/D point ( yes, I am using the PSS package), and then land. Wake up the house with thrust reversers. Magic!
