Long Haul Flights That Cross Two Oceans?

I was just wondering if you guys knew of any longhaul routes that crossed more than one ocean.

The only one I can think of is this:

MIA-SCL



One could say that, actually, it crosses three oceans: 1. Atlantic, 2. Gulf of Mexico, 3. Pacific.

Non-stop it doesn't...do we know where this flight is going to be coming from anyway?

I was looking for non-stop flights and I don't think the IAH flight is going to be nonstop.

SQ will fly it from SIN-Moscow-IAH. It might cross part of the Indian ocean as it leaves SIN, but besides that, the flight will only cross the atlantic

If the Soviet Union forbid any overflight of their territory, was it possible something like ICN or NRT to LHR flew over the Pacific, Arctic, and Atlantic? It would have left ICN/NRT and flown North over the Pacific towards Alaska then over the Arctic into the North Sea (Atlantic) and come down?

I can't think of any scheduled flight that would do so. The Middle East or India eastbound to the Falklands would cross the Indian, the Pacific and parts of the Atlantic. Depending on the routing, it might also touch the Southern.

When Boeing flew the 777-200LR demonstrator eastbound from HKG to LHR, that would have crossed at least the Pacific and the Atlantic and might have crossed part of the Arctic.

you havent specified whether you are talking only of nonstop flights or including direct one stop flights in which case NZ2/NZ1 would certainly qualify AKL-(LAX)-LHR crossing both the Pacific and the Atlantic

Any flight between YVR and Europe flies over the Atlantic and Pacific, albeit, only when lining up for final on RWYS 08L/R or taking off from RWYS 26 L/R ...  Big grin

Malaysians KUL-JNB-EZE flights would cross two Oceans, so would most Europe to South America flights if you are counting the North and South Atlantic as two separate entities.

Well, I hate to tell ya, but the Gulf of Mexico isn't an ocean at all (rather, it's officially part of the Atlantic).


Are there any flights that cross over Antarctica? Or perhaps those sightseeing flights from New Zealand which would cross over Pacfic and Southern? Don't forget that new little official Southern Ocean which rings around Antarctica (which Stitch mentioned) since 2000.

I think we need to clear what we are counting as oceans, because I am hearing more than 5.
I know of:
Atlantic Ocean
Pacific Ocean
Indian Ocean
Arctic Ocean
Southern Ocean
So Gulf of Mexico, North Atlantic, and South Atlantic don't count as oceans.

Yes, according to the International Hydrographic Organization there are FIVE oceans - no more, no less. That fifth one, the Southern, became official in 2000. Before that there were FOUR...not the Gulf of Mexico, not the Caribbean, not the South China Sea or anything else people could come up with. So, Meta, you are 100% correct - five oceans.

Indeed, which is why I only said if you are counting them as two individual oceans; many people do, rightly or wrongly, but the Atlantic itself definately IS an ocean.

Thanks - I wasn't entirely sure if that was right, so cheers for the correction. I think it's only that flight which keeps SkyTeam RTW tickets possible!

yes.

Just as the gulf of mexico is a part of the Atlantic ocean, isn't the English Channel also a part of the Atlantic ocean, if so, any flight between London and let's say Singapore, would pass the English Channel (The Atlantic) and The Bay of Benghal (The Indian).

VS has announced a LHR-HNL routing when they get their 787's. Will this cross the Atlantic, Pacific and some of the Arctic Ocean?

Not yet - but is it not already possible to use the flight as part of a Sky RTW ticket - I figured it was as I was offered the KUL-JNB sector when looking at possible itineraries for next year? Otherwise there is no point taking Sky and, as it is, I'll be flying on Star instead because of the better coverage!

Cross two oceans or flies over two oceans? I mean, a flight from Los Angeles to Miami will likely fly over both the Pacific and Atlantic.

offered by who ? although long rumoured to be a potential Skyteam member , and having FF ties with a number (but not all ) Skyteam carriers MH are not last time I checked included in the Skyteam RTW fare

Flights from DEL would be unlikely to cross more than one ocean -- the Atlantic if westbound and the Pacific on an eastbound routing.

It was a local travel agency (STA Travel) who specialise in student and adventure travel, they have many offices around the UK and the world. It's only AF who are stopping them from entering Sky, which is a shame, as they could really do with the added network which MH would bring.
