SQ # 38 Los Angeles (LAX) to Singapore (SIN) is listed as 18:20

SQ # 37 Singapore to Los Angeles is listed as 15:35

Singapore Airlines holds the distinction of having two of the world's longest flight durations.....EWR to SIN as you posted, and LAX to SIN., due primarily to head-wind in the Westwardly direction.

Cheers....  Smile

How is that possible? Only a 20 minute difference? Does it fly over the poles or what?

EWR-SIN sometimes goes over the North Pole (on a completely direct polar route), but sometimes when the winds are stronger, the plane will fly over Europe, the Middle East, and India. That flight has more choices.

LAX-SIN takes a typical tract for US West Coast - Asia flights. It goes North and passes south of Alaska and then heads down the east coast of Asia.

It really depends on the wind of the day. Sometimes it goes polar and sometimes it comes to Europe and head down to Singapore via the UK and France. Great circle distance can be anywhere between 8300Nm and 9000Nm while actual track distance can easily +700 to +1000 on top of GCD.

Aeronautical data - Use nautical miles please!

If you dont like the thread or dont agree with the thread dont post. I get so annoyed when we all pay our money to be part of airliners.net and always there is somebody waiting to post fussy little comments about whether the thread should exist or not....you dont like it dont comment.

Thats more like it - give the guy a break and let him to what he has paid his money to do which is discuss aviation. Shame there arent more positive comments like ANC's instead of tittle tattle.

Sorry to post this but I am really hacked off at the moment with this on this site.
