Hey! I was thinking about the longest non-stop route in the world, and I looked up some things.

I found on South African Airways Non-stop New York JFK to Johannesburg, South Africa which is 7960 miles.

I also found South Africa Airways Atlanta to Johannesburg.

Also, Los Anngeles to Melbourne, Australia.

And I believe in the summer, EL AL goes Los Angeles to Israel, non-stop!!!

Which is it?!?! Does anybody know? Or does anybody have any other routes they think are outrageously long?!?!

Tell please!

This comes up very frequently -- you can probably search the archives.

Anyway, the answer is ATL-JNB. Get on expedia.com and pull the mileage for it and compare to other flights if you're in doubt.

Here are the great circle distances for the flights you described:

JFK-JNB: 6917NM
ATL-JNB: 7326NM
LAX-MEL: 6891NM
LAX-TLV: 6575NM

Just out of interest, who flys the JFK and ATL to JNB route?

Also, with the advent of the A340-500 we will see this route, which will take first place:

SIN-LAX: 7643NM

Anyone else know other planned A340-500 routes?

Out of curiosity...how is ATL-JNB longer than JFK-JNB?!

Also, Doesnt Singapore Air already go SIN-LAX? I always go to LAX to take pictures and see Singapore Air taking off to Singapore...am I wrong?

Lastly, out of curiosity---how is Tel Aviv-LAX shorter?!

FYI,
SIA currently flies to LAX with a stopover at TPE, if i'm not mistaken. SIA doesn't go to LAX non-stop.

Finally, SIA does fly to LAX, but via Taipei at present...

SIA flies to Seoul out of SFO with the 340s, they might also fly the same route out of LAX explaining their presence.

The old Gulf Air route - Bahrain - New York JFK was 6608 based on the great circle site above?

Did you notice that from Bahrain with the 777-200LR an airline could reach any city on the planet, non-stop?

Talk about the ultimate global network?

PS - some more routes - BAH-SYD, 7771nm - BAH-ATL, 7364nm - BAH-EZE, 8229nm.

I'm fairly sure that SQ will also fly SIN-SFO in the new planes. I guess in addition to SEL, SQ flies via HKG to grab some of that overseas Chinese market.

El Al operates a LAX-TLV (LY106) leg twice a week during summer with a 744, the flight to LAX stops at JFK.
This summer it will be operated though by a 777 (!)
Anyway, El Al used to fly few years ago TLV-LAX non-stop!

I thought UAL's HKG-ORD route is currently the longest route. (Correct me if I am wrong)

The HKG-JFK route will be the longest from April 2001 onwards.

longest route mentioned here is definetely ATL-JNB (surprises me that SQ doesn't fly the SIN-SFO nonstop then, would only be 36nm further)
Consider also EZE-SYD
Does Qantas go the GIG-SYD route 7355 nm, 8464 mi ??

How about cargo flights? The longest I can think of at the top of my head is Miami to Shanghai, but there has to be longer, no?

In order of non-stop length:

ATL-JNB = 8431 ---South African Airways
HKG-JFK = 8071 ---United
JFK-JNB = 7960 ---South African Airways
LAX-MEL = 7930 ---Qantas
HKG-ORD = 7793 ---United
LAX-TLV = 7566 ---El Al
LAX-SYD = 7478 ---Qantas
EZE-SYD = 7377 ---???

ATL-JNB


life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on
25 Cba : 1. South African ATL-JNB, 7326nm 2. Emirates LAX-DXB, 7251nm 3. United JFK-HKG, 7014nm 4. Continental EWR-JFK, 7008nm
26 Post contains images Corey777 : 4. Continental EWR-JFK, 7008nm Newark to NYC is 7008 nm?! Was there some massive plate movement or something that I don't know about? Just kidding. --
27 Post contains images Cruising : I don't wanna be in any one of those routes mentioned above. That is too long for me (17-18 hrs). I think Boeing and Airbus should make supersonic jet
28 Post contains images Cba : I meant to say that CO's 7008nm route is EWR-HKG, not EWR-JFK.
29 SegmentKing : Correct this please. Is Atlanta - Johannesburg NONSTOP???? I know alot of you use expedia, but I'd like to see something from a REAL CRS.. not a java
30 Jfidler : Yes, ATL-JNB is non-stop. I can attest to it because I flew on it (it's operated by SAA, but code-shared with DL) last February. The return flight mak
31 ZK-NBT : EZE SYD does not operate direct it goes via AKL both ways on QF and AR services. Scott
