I was always curious, do the 747s that fly West Coast US to Austraillia have more than enough range to do that, or do they take a lot of wieght restrictions, this is probabaly dependant on winds and time of year I assume. What about that EWR-SIN flight?

They're limited in the amount of cargo they carry on the longest runs... but QF's 744ERs have gone a long way towards mitigating that

SQ flies this route with a 181 seat configuration on a plane that's advertised to carry 300+ people.... so you tell me  Wink

Though longer than EWR-HKG, it's still shorter than both SQ's flights and TG's soon-to-be-former nonstops as well.

The EK site says the B777-200LR is scheduled to take 17 hours westward and "just over" 15 hrs eastward.

I would rather fly from SING to LAX and have a stop but then continue to EWR, rather than be stuck in a plane for 18 HOURS!

If travelling Economy then the seats are rather good as I have heard. MUCH more leg space, and a more private feel as cabin is 2 - 3 - 2 and they advertise it as Executive Economy
