My longest flight is not all that long compared to others but anyways it was 8.5 hrs from Heathrow to Toronto Canada in economy on a Air Canada 767. The cool thing about it was it was the last chartered flight scheduled in October and there was only 30 passengers aboard. We were suppose to fly out at 3o'clock but flight was delayed 3 hrs and there was an aircraft change as well. Original a/c was 747 but anyways that was the first flight on a 767.

HNL-SYD was the longest nonstop flight I remember being on. It was in July, 1993 and that was on a Qantas 747-200. The economy seating was cramped, but the service was good. That's where I first discovered the pleasure of Victoria Bitter. The flight was about 10 hours in length, ans was a segment of my trip from Grande Prairie, AB to Cairns, QLD. YQU-YYC-YVR-HNL-SYD-CNS, that's the way my trip went - with four connections and a total of 25 or so hours!

it was either DFW-ORD-ZRH this summer on AA(biz class) or it was DFW-JFK-TLV(tel aviv) on LY biz-class a couple of years ago, i think the longer journey was DFW-JFK-TLV, going it was a freshly delivered 744 and the service was great and the mini tvs were great aswell, and i slept perfectly also, comming back-it wasn't so good because we were on an old 742, the biz-class seats were horrible and i couldn't sleep on that flight either

My longest is relatively short... On my first visit to Purdue, it took 9 hours to fly from San Diego to Chicago in a Super 80. There were many bad storms over the midwest, and we had to hold for a long time. Then, we landed in Omaha for refueling and departed, heading north to Canada and then east to Michigan before landing in chicago to circumnavigate the storms. We left SAN around 7 am (9 am in Chicago), and landed at ORD around 6 pm. Though we were on the ground waiting for fuel for about 30 minutes, we could not deplane because there were not enough gates for the many AA and UA planes diverted from Chicago.

My longest flight leg was SKG-ZRH-JFK with Crossair MD80 and Swissair MD-11. Eventhough I was traveling Y, the service was great.
Recently I traveled JFK-LHR (and vv) via Reykjavik (Keflavik-KEF) with Icelandair. Eventhough the 757's were a bit cramped, it was a great flight, the service was fine,the food was good! the movies recent, the drinks free .
KEF airport is small, cosy, and clean we arrived on-time, and above all, it was cheap

The longest flight for me was a 6 hour and 13 minute flight from BOS-LAX on February 14, 1986. Sure it was not any kind of LAX-SYD but fairly hair raising. The UAL DC-10-10 went around LAX God knows how many times. It was raining like heck, the ground was no where to be seen, and we landed from over the Pacific. It was the only time I have landed at LAX from over the ocean. When we finally landed the entire cabin vigorously clapped. It sure seemed like a longer flight than it was.

The longest non-stop segment for me is the 7246 miles between HKG and LAX, which I've flown on both Delta (MD11) and Cathay (744). The longest flight time has to be the Delta flight (on MD11 N806DE) from LAX-HKG at just around 15.5 hours.

My longest NON-STOP Flight was in 1998 (November) from NRT to PAR (CDG) with AF 747-400.
Flight time was 15:55 minutes. We went over the pole therefore it took so long.
I was in Business and it was a good flight indeed.
It was the late evening flight out of NRT.
Today AF doesn't lfy this route anymore i mean they do fly NRT CDG but only via the TS route (Trans siberian). At that time they wanted to increase their capacity to Japan but failed to get the necessary permission from Russia so they deceided to fly over the pole.
