I'm finishing up the manuscript for the new edition of my book. It will contain a segment on the world's longest nonstop flights, and I'd like to include a list of the top ten.
I'm hoping you can help me update the following 1-10, which was accurate as of a year or so ago. It likely needs a few additions/subtractions.
Criteria: Nonstop in one or both directions; regularly scheduled passenger flight. Nautical miles, great circle distance. If you're using the Great Circle Mapper or some similar took, please remember to select nautical miles, not statute.
